The Department of Computer Science (CS) and the Department of
Mechanical Engineering (ME) at Tufts University invite applications for
a tenure-stream faculty appointment at any rank in the area of robotics
to begin in September 2017. We are looking for an engaged and engaging
researcher and teacher with a strong vision who can bridge the research
strands in control and navigation in ME and artificial intelligence and
human-robot interaction in CS and maintain a high-quality collaborative
research program at Tufts. Possible connections include safe autonomous
navigation in social spaces (from autonomously driving cars, to social
robots in elder-care facilities, to UAVs for product delivery), safe
object manipulation for human-robot collaborative tasks (e.g.,
collaborative assembly tasks, manipulation of physical parts in
manufacturing, and physical interaction in therapy settings such
dressing or guided limb motion for stroke recovery), and all aspects of
human-robot teaming (e.g., trained human-robot teams for Urban Search
and Rescue missions, ad hoc teams for disaster relief, space
exploration, or other teaming settings where autonomous robots
significantly contribute to mission success).
