Many technology leaders have likened the explosive growth of robotics to the spectacular expansion of the internet in the 1990s. Robots seem to be everywhere and unavoidable.
The Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CoRIS) Institute currently has an opening for a tenure-track position in robotics, with an application deadline of 16 November 2018. The rank (assistant, associate, full professor) is open. All areas relating to robotics will be considered; however, preference will be given to applicants with research areas that directly develop Artificial Intelligence or Computer Vision capabilities for robotics. The successful candidate will have office and laboratory space co-located within the existing Robotics facilities, will have an administrative home most appropriate to their area of expertise within the College of Engineering (e.g., School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science or School of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering), and be a member of the CoRIS institute. Candidates need to submit a letter of interest; vita; a two-page statement of research interests; a one-page statement of teaching interests; a one-page statement on past efforts and future plans to promote equity and inclusion; and names and contact information for at least three references. The official position, with full details, is posted at https://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/65455.
Apply to the Robotics PhD or MS program through MIME admissions. Students should identify one or more prospective advisors from the robotics faculty page to note on their application. If you are currently a graduate student at OSU, you should contact the robotics faculty members directly.
Apply through Oregon State University admissions, most likely in MIME or EECS. If you are currently an undergraduate student at OSU, we recommend you start taking robotics courses and join the Robotics Club as a way to get involved. We also have an NSF REU site Robots in the Real World.
There are currently no positions available. Please check back periodically; positions will also be announced on the robotics-worldwide mailing list.
