Faculty Position in Engineering (Area of Robotics)

Arizona State University - Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, The Polytechnic School



The Polytechnic School in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University seeks applicants for an open-rank tenure-track/tenured faculty position in engineering (area of robotics.)



The Polytechnic School, one of the six Fulton Schools, has an energetic engineering (robotics) research community. To advance this area, we will look for applicants who complement our ability to solve Grand Challenge Problems as part of a community of experts in robot design, development, analysis and control. Particular areas of interest include embedded systems (including modular or networked robotic systems), mobile robotic platforms (such as legged or humanoid systems), surgical robotics (including topics in haptics, laparoscopy and needle steering) and human-safe robots (with applications in manufacturing and human-robot collaboration).



We seek applicants who will contribute to our academic programs, promote transdisciplinary teaching and research, and help the University to achieve its aspirations, including enabling student success, transforming society, valuing entrepreneurship and conducting use-inspired research. Faculty members in the Fulton Schools are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, adopt effective pedagogical practices in the development and delivery of graduate and undergraduate courses, advise both undergraduate and graduate student research and projects and undertake service activities.
