The department of mechanical engineering, University of California, Berkeley, seeks candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. The Department seeks candidates with expertise in the area of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems.
Control engineering, mechatronics, and machine learning play essential roles in enhancing sustainability, safety, and quality of life. Our department is widely recognized for its Mechanical Engineering control program and we are looking for candidates who can significantly expand our portfolio to research fields that leverage emerging technologies in artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, communication, IoT, sensing and control, and/or computation.
The Department is interested in outstanding candidates interested in advancing the control systems field with novel theoretical developments and practical applications. Applications of interest include but are not limited to: industrial robotics; mechatronics; autonomous vehicles; intelligent and sustainable mobility and transportation systems; autonomous and intelligent robotics for exploration, manufacturing, and construction; human interaction augmentation and assistance; health care; and sustainable energy production, distribution and management. In addition, applications are encouraged by candidates who work at the intersection of any of these research areas with Aerospace Engineering.
