Job Opportunity: Professorial Positions in Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering, Swinburne, Australia

http://swinburne.nga.net.au/mjs_customer_data/swinburne/job_files/1971/PD25289.pdf

Engineering at Swinburne (http://www.swinburne.edu.au/feis/) is being 
further strengthened by the appointment of two Professors to key 
leadership roles in the areas of Robotics & Mechatronics and Electrical 
& Electronic Engineering. This builds on recent professorial 
appointments in the areas of Engineering Mathematics, Engineering 
Design, Bioengineering and Surface Science & Interface Engineering. The 
Professors will contribute to the strategic direction of Engineering at 
Swinburne, provide leadership and promote innovation and excellence in 
research, teaching, and learning, and develop research within their 
discipline and in collaboration, both nationally and internationally. 
The people we seek for these critical roles will be strongly committed 
teaching academics who also have an interest in developing applied 
research both within their discipline and in collaboration with others, 
both academic and industrial. Collaborative research is encouraged 
within the Faculty and across the campus, as well as nationally and 
internationally. Each Professor will be associated with a group of 
colleagues within the Faculty. There is also the possibility of junior 
appointments to be made in association with these Professorial 
appointments. For further information, please see:
