Work together. Create smart machines. Serve society.
We invite applicants to join our mission to accelerate advances in robotics for the benefit of society.
We are about to move in to a new $75M building that will bring together roboticists from around campus, Michigan, and the world. Bolstered by these state of the art laboratories, teaching facilities, offices, collaboration spaces, and workshops, we are creating an inclusive culture that utilizes robotics to enable humanity.
Specifically, we seek applications for junior or senior faculty positions. Successful candidates will have a relevant doctorate or equivalent experience and an outstanding record of achievement and impactful research in academics, industry and/or at national laboratories. They will have a strong record or commitment to teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, to providing service to the university and profession and to broadening the intellectual diversity of the College.
Candidates can identify with all research areas relevant to robotics. Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.
As part of the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, tenure lines associated with the open positions reside with the departments in the College of Engineering. Please indicate a preferred “home” department in your cover letter. Successful candidates will have laboratory and office space in the Ford Motor Company Robotics Building, the new home of the Robotics Institute.
While the Robotics Institute will forward its top candidates to the appropriate department(s) for consideration, candidates are encouraged to apply to both Robotics and one or more departments to ensure their applications are seen by the broadest group of faculty. It’s very possible that a department may have needs, separate from the Robotics Institute, for someone with your skillset.
Applications will be considered as they are received.
