The Georgia Institute of Technology invites applicants for the endowed
position of the Julian T. Hightower Chair in Systems and Control in the
School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Previous holders of the
Julian T. Hightower Chair include E. Kamen, A. Tannenbaum, J. Shamma,
and M. Egerstedt.

Candidates are expected to have a distinguished record of research in
autonomy, robotics, and control theory that will add to the College's
existing strengths in these areas. In particular, the successful
candidate is expected to be a leading member of the Decision and
Controls Laboratory (DCL) within the College. The DCL comprises over 20
faculty members and organizes a number of events throughout the year. In
addition, the appointed individual will have the opportunity to join the
Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) at Georgia Tech.
IRIM is one of the world's leading academic robotics institutes
comprised of over 50 faculty members.

The successful candidate is expected to establish a
high-visibility/high-impact research program funded by industry and
government, help attract outstanding students and faculty to the
program, and serve as a mentor to other faculty. The academic salary for
the Chair holder will be paid from Institute funds, enabling funds
generated by the endowment to be used by the Chair holder for the
purposes of research support and program development. Salary will be
fully competitive.

Interested candidates should submit an application letter, curriculum
vita, research and teaching statements and names of three references
electronically at: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__hightowerchair.ece.gatech.edu&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=F3HNas-nBSPCCLwp27a9Nrt7cZmS6YgWGSxnPDkXxIk&s=Nu3Fp-peIpF7XaNFSxC8XXBJgy7ouOPKwDbmHYQ9Sx8&e=.  Review of
applications will begin immediately. A background check must be
completed prior to employment. To receive the most serious
consideration, interested applicants should submit their materials
before January 17, 2019.

Georgia Tech is an equal education/employment opportunity institution
dedicated to building a diverse community. We strongly encourage
applications from women, underrepresented minorities, individuals with
disabilities, and veterans. Georgia Tech has policies to promote a
healthy work-life balance and is aware that attracting faculty may
require meeting the needs of two careers.
