This search is open to all faculty ranks and to candidates in all 
engineering disciplines including Computer Science, Mechanical 
Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biomedical 
Engineering. Tenure-line appointments will be in an appropriate academic 
department within the Whiting School of Engineering.  Of particular 
interest are established candidates with a focus on robotics in all 
aspects of healthcare.  Examples include interventional/surgical 
systems, rehabilitation, assistive robotics for healthcare, medical 
imaging, or neuroscience, nursing assistants, etc.  Candidates with a 
demonstrated ability to translate their work to healthcare-related 
settings are especially sought.

LCSR is a large multi-disciplinary center within the Whiting School of 
Engineering with over 200 people.  LCSR’s research strategy emphasizes 
both fundamental and translational research in many aspects of 
robotics.  The Center collaborates actively with the School of Medicine, 
with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, with other divisions 
within the University, and with leading Industry and academic research 
institutions worldwide.

Opportunities exist for interactions across Johns Hopkins in 
transdisciplinary Centers and Institutes including LCSR, the Malone 
Center for Engineering in Healthcare, the Institute for Computational 
Medicine, the Institute for NanoBio Technology, the Institute for Data 
Intensive Engineering and Science, the Environment, Energy, 
Sustainability, and Health Institute, and Divisions across Johns Hopkins 
including the JHU Applied Physics Laboratory, the JHU School of 
Medicine, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, and the Bloomberg 
School of Public Health.

All applicants must hold a Ph.D. in an engineering or related field and 
will be expected to establish a strong, independent, multidisciplinary, 
and internationally recognized research program. Commitment to teaching 
excellence at the undergraduate and graduate levels is required.
