Assistant Professor - Engineering Technologies - Robotics Engineering
Bowling Green State University
Location: Bowling Green, Ohio
Higher Education Institution
Position Title: Tenure Track Faculty Assistant Professor – Robotics
Bowling Green State University is searching for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the discipline of Robotics Engineering with a start date of August 7, 2023. The individual will teach and develop undergraduate and graduate-level courses and conduct research in the applied computer software and hardware integration with applications to mechatronics and robotics systems. The desired fields for the candidate’s research program include, but are not limited to, (1) humanoid robots, (2) machine vision, (3) artificial Intelligence for robotics, (4) robot programming, and (5) smart manufacturing. The individual will help to continue to develop the curriculum to ABET accreditation standards. Individuals with interests in the electronics for robotics and robotics in electronic manufacturing are encouraged to apply to the cross-appointment position (Link).
The College of Technology is undergoing a major transformation by creating a School of Engineering to replace the current Department of Engineering Technologies (DET). The School of Engineering will host our current B.S. in Systems Engineering (SYS) and M.S. in Logistic Systems Engineering (LSE), and is scheduled to launch three additional engineering programs in Fall 2023 – Electronics and Computer engineering, Mechanical and Manufacturing engineering, and Robotics engineering.
The curriculum is heavily focused on hands-on education and applied research and mandates co-operative education courses for all students. Current programs are focused on ABET-ETAC accredited engineering technology programs, three of which are being converted to engineering. Additionally, technology programs will also be offered under the School of Engineering.
For further information regarding the department and its programs, please visit our website. However, please note that the changes related to the School of Engineering are currently in process and are not yet reflected on the website. https://www.bgsu.edu/technology-architecture-and-applied-engineering/schools-and-departments/engineering-technologies.html
