Open Rank Faculty in Dynamic Systems & Control
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech invites applications for a faculty position in the area of Dynamic Systems and Control. This position will be at Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. Exceptional candidates will be considered for named professorships.
The successful candidate for this position will have expertise in any emerging field of control and dynamical systems with emphasis on areas including but not limited to robotics and autonomous systems, control and information theory, perceptions and intelligent systems, signal processing and estimation, mechatronics, and system dynamics. Particularly desirable are areas such as human-machine interaction, modeling and control of social and behavioral systems, bioinspired robotics, and social robotics, just to mention a few, which are complementary to already existing expertise in the Department. Within the aforementioned areas, the selection criteria will place more emphasis on the strength of the scholarship and less on the specific area of the candidate. We seek the strongest candidates in these areas with experience in theory, modeling, computation, experimentation or a combination thereof.
Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in engineering or a closely related discipline. We are seeking highly qualified candidates committed to a career in research and teaching. The successful candidate will be responsible for mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and developing an internationally recognized research program.
