The University of California at Davis has a tenure-track position available in the area of Prosthetics and Assistive Robotics. The appointment is at the Assistant Professor level. The appointment will be in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. Successful candidates will be expected to fit within the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, in research, teaching, and department administration. However, the research program of a successful candidate is expected to integrate campus strengths in engineering, neurosciences, and medicine. Candidates interested in helping lead efforts to integrate these disciplines on the UC Davis campus, possibly as part of a new Initiative for Neuroengineering & Medicine, are encouraged to apply. The current positions are part of a cluster of hires that will also include associated positions in neurobiology/motor control and brain-computer interfaces. Interdisciplinary collaborations with other departments within the College of Engineering, School of Veterinary Medicine, School of Medicine, College of Biological Sciences and College of Letters and Science are highly desirable and encouraged through a strong campus Graduate Group system.
