Five Tenure Track positions for Cognitive Robotics


Five tenure-track positions for cognitive robotics at Delft, including one on haptic human-robot interaction

To further strengthen robotic research and education, several key groups have now joined forces to form a new Department of Cognitive Robotics, with the mission of bringing robotic solutions to human-inhabited environments. We combine fundamental research with work with physical demonstrators in areas such as self-driving vehicles, collaborative industrial robots, mobile manipulators, and haptic interfaces. Strong collaborations exist within cross-faculty institutes (TU Delft Robotics Institute and TU Delft Transport Institute), our national robotic ecosystem (RoboValley, Holland Robotics), international industry and academia. 

The strategic decision to form the Cognitive Robotics department, financially supported by the Executive Board of the Delft University of Technology, allows us to hire new academic staff for several Assistant Professor (tenure-track) and Associate Professor (tenured) positions. We are looking for excellent candidates with a proven track record in scientific research, an innovative research vision, and a commitment to education.

For those interested in haptics, shared control, tele-robotics and physical human-robot interaction: one of the open tenure track positions is at the Delft Haptics Lab:

Research focus on intuitive interaction and mutual learning between humans and (mobile) robot manipulators that operate in unstructured environments; based on insights from human-centred design, bilateral telemanipulation, (haptic) shared control, learning from demonstration, and human-robot teamwork.
