Control, Robotics, & Autonomy: Open Rank, Joint Faculty Search in ME and ECE
The Departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) and Mechanical Engineering (ME) in the Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE) at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) invite applications as part of ongoing efforts to empower and broaden UCR’s current strengths in Control, Robotics, Autonomy, and Machine Intelligence, and foster new cross-disciplinary initiatives, both within and outside BCOE (e.g. with the School of Medicine, or the College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences).
We invite applications across the broad areas of Control, Robotics, & Autonomy, with particular emphasis on medical robotics, human-robot interaction, micro/soft-robotics, distributed & autonomous systems, and control theory & optimization. We are especially interested in applicants who will bring complementary expertise and create new synergies among the disciplines of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science. Successful candidates will have a proven record of, or exceptional promise for developing a vibrant, externally-funded research program, as well as a portfolio of high quality teaching in Controls and Robotics at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the ECE or ME websites for further information and links to the application submission site. Review of applications will begin January 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. All applications will be reviewed by both departments; thus, applicants need only apply to one department.
