Caltech now has *two* faculty searches that are relevant for students and postdocs interested in controls, robotics and related fields. I would appreciate your help in ensuring that the search announcements reach outstanding candidates.
Please note that Caltech is quite willing to interview someone of exceptional caliber before they would normally apply to an academic search.
* A search in Mechanical and Civil Engineering (MCE), looking for someone working in the area of "mechanical and autonomous systems". This includes robotics, controls and other related areas.
* A search in Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS), looking broadly the areas that include: learning and computational statistics, security and privacy; robotics and autonomous systems; networked and distributed systems; optimization and computational mathematics.
Further details on both searches are given below.
Assistant Professor in the area of Mechanical and Autonomous Systems
The Division of Engineering and Applied Science at the California Institute of Technology invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering. We are interested in applicants from a broad range of research areas related to mechanical and autonomous systems. Specific areas include, but are not limited to robotics, controls, energy systems, distributed sensing, manufacturing and structural control and monitoring systems. The search is aimed at the assistant professor level.
Interested applicants should submit an electronic application at
Review of applications will begin on 1 October and will continue until the position is filled. The term of the initial appointment at the assistant professor level is normally four years, with appointment contingent upon completion of a PhD in a relevant field. The California Institute of Technology is an Equal-Opportunity/Affirmative-Action Employer. Women, minorities, veterans, and disabled persons are encouraged to apply.

Assistant Professor in Computing and Mathematical Sciences
The Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at Caltech invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position. Our department is a unique environment where innovative, interdisciplinary, and foundational research is conducted in a collegial atmosphere. We will consider candidates in all areas of computing, broadly defined; research areas of particular interest include (but are not limited to) learning and computational statistics, security and privacy; robotics and autonomous systems; networked and distributed systems; optimization and computational mathematics. Additionally, we are seeking candidates who have demonstrated strong connections to other fields, including the physical, biological, mathematical, and social sciences.
A commitment to high-quality teaching and mentoring is expected. The initial appointment at the assistant-professor level is for four years and is contingent upon the completion of a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics or related field.
To ensure the fullest consideration, applicants are encouraged to have all their application materials on file by 31 December 2015.
