[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Faculty positions in Robotics at Purdue University, USA
The School of Engineering Technology at Purdue, West Lafayette, is hiring two tenure-track faculty members with research interests in robotics and CPS for Fall 2020. Join our growing team of robotics and IoT faculty that work on advanced biosensors and polymer electronics, programming by demonstration, physical HRI, rehabilitation robotics, microactuators, hydraulics, 3-D and 4-D printing, manufacturing, Industry 4.0, emergency response robotics, UUVs, USVs, UGVs, and UAVs in a multi-disciplinary environment. We are breaking down the silos and engaging in transdisciplinary research and teaching applied to societal problems of substance.
Of the two open positions, one is focused on mechanical background and one is focused on electrical. The mechanical position leans toward hydraulic power and mechanical design while the electrical position leans toward energy systems and power electronics with an emphasis on computing.
A PhD in a robotics-related field is required. Employment opportunities with full details including position summaries, education and qualifications, and application procedures can be found at:
Both are at the West Lafayette main campus. This Faculty Search Committee only considers candidates for the West Lafayette positions listed.
