The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of
Colorado, Boulder is currently seeking applications for a tenure track
faculty position in the area of autonomous systems. This position is part of
the long-term growth plans for the College of Engineering and Applied
Science (CEAS), and supports the new Autonomous Systems Interdisciplinary
Research Theme (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__autonomy.colorado.edu&d=DwICAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=z6LktwNMMQmFGwJi-y2GpLEJ_zcz5yu4SQnNSpJqTUk&s=wqmGmmwz5q5ZJ5fO6R-frz2AbAXpHQ488me6uMVz978&e=). We are especially interested
in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research,
teaching, and service, to the diversity and excellence of our academic
community. The position is open at all levels, with emphasis on applicants
at the Assistant Professor level. We are interested in candidates who can
complement current expertise and contribute to the Autonomous Systems
Interdisciplinary Research Theme through fundamental disciplinary autonomy
research and/or application-specific use of autonomous system technology.

This position will be rostered in one of the following departments:
Aerospace Engineering Sciences; Computer Science; Electrical, Computer and
Energy Engineering; or Mechanical Engineering. In addition, candidates will
have the opportunity to engage with various research institutions on campus,
such as the ATLAS Institute or the Interdisciplinary Telecommunications
Program (ITP). Candidates must have an earned Ph.D. or equivalent degree in
aerospace engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical
engineering, applied mathematics or a related field. 

Autonomous systems interact with human partners for extended periods of
time, sometimes at remote distances and promise improved safety,
reliability, efficiency, adaptability, resiliency, usability, affordability,
and previously unattainable capabilities. Networked cyber-physical systems
pervade modern society. The Autonomous Systems Interdisciplinary Research
Theme (ASIRT) investigates how smart, safe, and secure autonomy can expand
and exploit the full capabilities of these networked systems. This theme
convenes faculty from across the College of Engineering and Applied Science
at the University of Colorado Boulder with expertise in robotics,
cyber-security, verification and validation, control theory, artificial
intelligence, unmanned systems, machine learning, network science, formal
methods, and human-robot interaction.

Candidates will be expected to engage in undergraduate and graduate
teaching, contribute professional service, and develop vigorous, externally
funded research programs in their technical areas. Candidates whose
expertise cuts across engineering and related disciplines are especially
encouraged to apply. Potential faculty members applying to the Autonomous
Systems Interdisciplinary Research Theme at the University of Colorado
Boulder should describe their plans to develop a recognized research program
based on scholarly work in their particular field, their ideas for
interdisciplinary collaboration, the department(s) where they would like to
be rostered, their experience and interests in teaching undergraduates and
graduates, and their future plans for inspiring diverse students to conduct
