Research Assistant Professor
University of Nevada, Reno - Main Campus
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno invites applications for a non-tenure track appointment at the Research Assistant Professor level.
The Department's recently established Curriculum in Unmanned Autonomous Systems and its Autonomous Robots Lab focus on the development of cognizant and intelligent autonomous systems.
The successful applicant will be expected to develop a strong research program in autonomous aerial robotics research.
This position will be expected to teach classes.
The position is expected to be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found but no later than October 1, 2018.
The rapidly expanding and dynamic Department of Computer Science and Engineering has added nine positions over the last five years and expects to add more. Several faculty have NSF CAREER awards and play lead roles in multiple state-wide and national multi-million dollar NSF awards. In addition to federal support from DoD, DHS, DoE, and NASA, companies like Google, Microsoft, Ford, AT&T, Nokia, and Honda support our research.
Thanks to substantial growth in both student enrollment and tenure-track faculty positions, the College of Engineering has received funding to build a new engineering building, scheduled to be completed in 2020. The new engineering building provides both additional space critically needed by the College and the modern facilities capable of supporting high-tech research and laboratory space. This building will allow the College to pursue its strategic vision, serve Nevada and the nation, and educate future generations of engineering professionals.
