The Faculty is looking for excellent candidates to fill several positions at assistant professor, associate professor and professor levels in robotics with prospect for substantiation. 

The Chinese University of Hong Kong has set up the CUHK T Stone Robotics Institute, as one of the new initiatives, which focuses its primary research on medical and service robotics through collaboration among experts in engineering, medicine and social science. The Institute plans to build collective strength in the robotics areas by recruiting excellent scholars, in particular with the following expertise: (i) surgical robots, (ii) rehabilitation and assistive robots, (iii) medical sensors and robot actuators, (iv) human-robot interactions, and (v) machine/robot intelligence. Excellent candidates in other areas will be considered as well. 

Applicants should have (i) a PhD degree; and (ii) a proven track record or demonstrating potential for teaching and research excellence. 

Appointments will normally be made on contract basis for one to three years, which, subject to mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later. Outstanding candidates with substantial experience at Professor rank may be considered for substantive appointment forthwith.  Applicants for Research Assistant Professorship may also be considered.  The exact start date will be negotiated with the successful applicants.

Applicants please upload the full resume, copies of academic credentials, publication list with abstracts of selected published papers, details of courses taught and evaluation results (if available), research plan, teaching statement, together with names, addresses and fax numbers/e-mail addresses of three to five referees to whom the applicants' consent has been given for their providing references (unless otherwise specified).
