Faculty Positions in Robotics, Sensors and Manufacturing
College of Science and Engineering
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

The University of Minnesota is pleased to announce an initiative on Robotics, Sensors and Manufacturing, funded by the State of Minnesota. The initiative will leverage strengths in research and education in these and related areas at the University and will expand collaborations with industry to respond to emerging opportunities. In support of the initiative, the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) invites applications for multiple tenure-track and tenured positions in a coordinated recruiting process with CSE academic departments in engineering, physical and computer sciences and mathematics and collaborating programs outside of CSE, in such application areas as health sciences, biology and agriculture.

Disciplinary areas of particular interest to this search include, but are not limited, to robotics and automation, control and dynamical systems, machine learning and intelligence, image processing and computer vision, neuroengineering, materials, devices and systems for novel sensing and actuation and digital manufacturing. Successful candidates are expected to have strong commitments to cross-disciplinary collaboration in research and teaching in both undergraduate and graduate levels. These candidates must actively support the goals of the initiative in impacting the University’s contributions to such applications as terrestrial and aerial robotics, industrial automation and manufacturing, surgical robotics and image-guided therapies, medical-assist and wearable robotic systems, environmental and agricultural robotics, cognition, human-machine and human augmentation systems. Candidates must hold PhDs at the time of appointment in areas appropriate for the initiative.

Please apply online via the University of Minnesota Employment System:

Applications should include cover letters referencing the Robotics, Sensors and Manufacturing faculty positions, detailed curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests and lists of three references with contact information (including email addresses). Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Successful candidates will be appointed as early as Fall Semester 2014.
