Software Developer Position

Associate Professor Scott Kuhl, Computer Science, is seeking graduate and undergraduate job applicants for a software developer position. The software developer will help develop, improve, and deploy educational tools to introduce students to mechatronics. The project entails updating and improving an existing 3D industrial robot simulator written in Java, and a PLC educational website written in PHP.

The software developer will also leverage Canvas to develop from scratch other educational tools for online use. Knowledge of mechatronics, PLCs, and industrial robots is not required for the position, as others working on the project can provide assistance in developing those educational materials. Experience with web technologies is strongly preferred.

Part of an NSF ExLENT grant, this hourly project starts in Fall 2023; it is expected that the position will continue through the Spring and Summer 2024 semesters. Please apply here. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Questions? Please email Scott Kuhl at kuhl@mtu.edu. Visit Dr. Kuhl’s website here.
