The School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at Princeton University invites applications for a faculty position at the junior or senior level (Assistant, tenured Associate or Full Professor rank) in the broadly defined field of robotics. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in engineering or a related subject, and have a demonstrated record of excellence and (for senior positions) leadership in research. We seek faculty members who will create a climate that embraces excellence and diversity, with a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring.
Princeton SEAS has a long history of leadership in its core disciplines of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Operations Research and Financial Engineering, and Chemical and Biological Engineering. A major effort is underway to establish a collaborative, cross-disciplinary community in robotics, which will lead to new academic opportunities and future robotic systems that interact with the human-occupied world with safety and sophistication for the benefit of society. We seek candidates with the background, expertise, creativity, and passion to build upon and complement existing strengths in order to lead Princeton in its efforts to establish inspiring research and teaching in the rapidly growing field of robotics.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis starting January 15, 2022. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications, a summary of research accomplishments and future plans, a teaching statement, and contact information for at least three references online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/23681.
