Professor (all ranks) in Convergent Innovation in Artificial Intelligence and Engineering
The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering (FSE) at Arizona State University (ASU) and the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy seeks applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications in robotics, autonomous systems, controls, and/or materials design and discovery. Appointment will be at the assistant, associate, or full professor rank commensurate with the candidate's experience and accomplishments, beginning August 2021. Although appointments may be in any of Fulton Engineering's six schools, an appointment is expected in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy.
We seek applicants who are well-versed in the mathematical, statistical, and algorithmic foundations of AI and have interest and experience in applying AI to problems of modeling, design, control, and optimization of engineered physical systems. Specific areas of expertise and interest include, but are not limited to, AI-assisted material science, including predictive material modeling and structure property mapping, discovery and optimization of new materials, and 4D materials; and AI-assisted robotics, controls, and autonomous systems, including soft robotics, multi-robot systems, bio-inspired robotics, rehabilitation robotics, control of and over networks, data-driven control, and nonlinear systems and control.
Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, mentor undergraduate and graduate students, foster and contribute to inclusive work environment, and undertake service activities.
Required qualifications: • Ph.D. in aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering, or equivalent in a science or engineering field related to the stated research and teaching focus of this position by the time of appointment; • Evidence of excellence in research, as appropriate to the candidate's rank; and • Evidence of excellence in teaching, as appropriate to the candidate's rank
Desired qualifications: • Demonstrated commitment to a collaborative, trans-disciplinary approach to research and teaming • Experience in applying AI to problems of modeling, design, control, and optimization of engineered physical systems
