Teaching-Track Faculty Position in Robotics

The Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR) at the 
Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a full-time teaching 
faculty position.  The individual selected for this position will be 
expected to contribute to our educational mission through teaching, 
curriculum development, and advising and mentoring students, including 
Robotics MSE students and undergraduate Robotics minors. Johns Hopkins 
is a private university well known for its commitment to academic 
excellence and research. Robotics at Johns Hopkins is among the top in 
the USA in terms of research activities and educational programs. See 
our web page at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__lcsr.jhu.edu&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=cGtX4I-C2u7rNc_AdS4fboFf_h1K_0b0TWg51ZciOfA&s=eedkSJldSRl6ZLS_jQ8nfLPAcm4N_UraxRrVNHHFokg&e= for additional information about
