General Summary of Position:

The Francis College of Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell is searching for outstanding candidates in Robotics for one full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Mechanical Engineering. The college includes 130 faculty members, 30% of whom are women, and has just under 3,000 undergraduate and over 1,000 graduate students. The University serves the multicultural population of the Commonwealth and has been nationally recognized for its commitment to diversity by the American Society for Engineering Education and is also a Minority Serving Institution (MSI). UMass Lowell is a Carnegie Doctoral High Research (RU/H) university ranked in the top tier of US News' National Universities. The College has bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in all departments.

The campus is situated on the banks of the Merrimack River, a beautiful and culturally diverse area, and birthplace of America's industrial revolution. Cotton mills in Lowell, the only city to be awarded national park status by the U.S. National Park Service, opened in 1814 and the city has been a hub of invention and innovation ever since. UML continues that legacy of innovation throughout the campus. Its location 30 miles northwest of Boston offers unsurpassed enrichment of every type, including fine arts, dining, historical sites, and of course sports! Just north of Lowell, the grandeur of New Hampshire's White mountains unfolds not far from the storied ski lodges of Vermont.

This new faculty will have the opportunity to work with a tight-knit group of robotics faculty spread across the departments of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science. They will also be able to build their research and teaching programs by leveraging the New England Robotics Validation and Experimentation (NERVE) Center, a 10,000 sq. ft. robot testing facility, as well as the newly built UMass Lowell Advanced Robotics Initiative (LARI) lab, a 5,000 sq. ft. shared lab space on North campus.
