Dear Colleagues,

*Tenure-track faculty position in the areas of mobile robots or autonomous
unmanned vehicles*

The Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech, Atlanta,
Georgia is seeking applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in the
areas of mobile robots or autonomous unmanned vehicles. Applicants at the
level of Assistant Professor are strongly preferred but exceptional
candidates at other levels will also be considered.  Candidates must hold a
doctorate in an appropriate field and are expected to establish a strong
externally-funded research program as well as to contribute fully to both
undergraduate and graduate education and be actively involved with the many
robotics efforts underway on campus.

We seek an outstanding individual who has the desire and capacity to build
an experimental research program in the area of mobile robotics and applied
dynamics/controls. Candidates may have interest and expertise in one or
more of the following areas: 1) mechanical design of mobile robots, 2)
locomotion methods and/or mechanisms, 3) cooperative manipulation, 4)
control algorithms for autonomous vehicles, or other related areas.
with expertise in ground robots, aerial vehicles, or surface or underwater
systems will be considered.  The ideal candidate will be an innovator in
the field of applied dynamics and controls who can design and deploy mobile
robots in the pursuit of research objectives in this domain.  There is a
great opportunity for faculty in this area to develop their own world-class
research and teaching programs at Georgia Tech.

The Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) at Georgia Tech
offers strong opportunities for collaboration and interdisciplinary
research in the robotics area.  IRIM brings together robotics researchers
from across Georgia Tech—spanning colleges, departments and individual
labs—to create new collaborative opportunities for faculty and to
strengthen partnerships with industry and government. Those applying for
Associate and Full Professor positions should have established records in
research that demonstrates nationally and internationally recognized
expertise. Each position requires a balance of undergraduate teaching,
graduate teaching, and research.  Apply online at
