Engineering or related field.
· Strong background in Computer Graphics. Specific knowledge of real
time computing  is a plus.
· Background in robotics/ mechatronics.
- Background in collision detection and response algorithms
· Excellent programming skills
· Experience in developing virtual environments involving haptics.
· Background in high performance scientific computations.


Interested candidates may apply to Professor Suvranu De ([hidden email])
with a cover letter, detailed CV, a copy of the publication deemed as
best representative of the candidate’s creative research, and names
and email addresses of three referees.
Applications from minority and women are especially encouraged. RPI is
