Control, Robotics, & Autonomy (CORA): Open Rank, Joint Faculty Search in Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE)

The Departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) and Mechanical Engineering (ME) in the Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE) at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) invite applications as part of ongoing efforts to empower and broaden UCR’s current strengths in Control, Robotics, Autonomy, and Machine Intelligence, and foster new cross-disciplinary initiatives, both within and outside BCOE (e.g. with the School of Medicine, or the College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences).

We invite applications across the broad areas of Control, Robotics, & Autonomy, with particular emphasis on medical robotics, human-robot interaction, micro/soft-robotics, distributed & autonomous systems, and control theory & optimization. We are especially interested in applicants who will bring complementary expertise and create new synergies among the disciplines of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science. Successful candidates will have a proven record of, or exceptional promise for developing a vibrant, externally-funded research program, as well as a portfolio of high quality teaching in Controls and Robotics at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Review of applications will begin January 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications must be submitted via one of the links below. All applications will be reviewed by both departments; thus, applicants need only apply to one department. If so desired, applicants may specify their interest in one or both departments in their cover letter. While applying via AP Recruit, applicants are kindly asked to append “CORA: ” before their dissertation title in the system’s appropriate field. Applicants are also requested to specify their interest in this search explicitly in their cover letter (i.e. Joint ME/ECE Search in Control, Robotics, and Autonomy).  For questions regarding the ME and ECE positions contact and, respectively.
