The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in: (1) robotics (emphasis on computational aspects of robotics research including robot learning, reasoning, safety, and perception) and/or (2) embedded system design targeted at robotics and autonomous system applications (emphasis on computational efficiency, lower size, weight and power [SWaP], perception integration, real-time operations, security, and robustness). While the search is mainly focused on an Assistant Professor position, more senior candidates with exceptional records will also be considered. 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 at the undergraduate and graduate levels. They will be expected to support the new cross‐cutting robotics efforts undertaken at UCR; for example, the new Robotics MS program - the first of its kind within the University of California system.
