Dear Colleagues,

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

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. Applicants 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
