Assistant/Associate/Full Professor - Robotics and Autonomous Systems
Mechanical Engineering
University of Massachusetts Lowell

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Massachusetts
Lowell is seeking to hire several full-time tenure-track faculty at the
ranks of Assistant or Associate Professor; applications for Full Professor
will also be considered for exceptional candidates.  Applicants must have
earned Doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering, or closely related
disciplines, and are required to have a record of quality teaching and
scholarship. Successful applicants will collaborate with existing faculty
members, teach classes to support the undergraduate and graduate programs,
develop new courses, advise and recruit graduate students, and are expected
to develop a robust, externally funded research program.

Robotics and Autonomous Systems: biomechanics, soft robotics, compliant
robots for manufacturing, advanced networked control systems, multi-agent
dynamic systems, cooperative robotics, cyber-physical systems, and
de-centralized path planning to support robotic programs with a strong
applied complement.  Faculty will have the opportunity to work with the
NERVE Center, a 10,000 sq. ft. robot testing facility, as well as the NASA
Valkyrie humanoid robot.

Note: Because there are multiple positions, candidates must clearly specify
they are applying for the Robotics and Autonomous Systems position in bold
font in the first sentence of their Cover Letter.

In cases of demonstrated outstanding research productivity and scholarship,
an appointment with tenure may be considered.  To apply, visit:

Applications received by December 15, 2016 will be
considered in the first review of candidates.  However, later applications
may be considered for these positions.  Each position will close after an
adequate number of qualified applications is received.

UMass Lowell is a Carnegie Doctoral High Research (RU/H) university ranked
in the top tier of US News' National Universities, and is strategically
located 30 miles northwest of Boston in the northeast Massachusetts
high-tech region. The department has over 900 undergraduate students and
150 graduate students.  An optional co-op program is available to
undergraduates.  The undergraduate engineering program is based on a
design-build-test methodology and is ABET accredited.  The University of
Massachusetts Lowell is committed to increasing diversity in its faculty,
staff, and student populations, as well as curriculum and support programs,
while promoting an inclusive environment. We seek candidates who can
contribute to that goal and encourage candidates to apply and to identify
their strengths in these areas.
