- Agricultural IoT and Robotics
- Agricultural Sensing and IoT Systems
- Agricultural IoT and Real-Time Power Science.
- Next-Generation Wireless
- Wireless Network Architectures
- Hardware System Security and Privacy
Promising candidates with interests in one of these areas are strongly encouraged to apply to all of the applicable positions.
CSE is undergoing an exciting period of significant growth. The department recently hired 11 tenured/tenure-track faculty, including 5 in 2019-2020, and plans to continue strategic expansion in the near future. This complements the hiring by the College of Engineering, which has hired more than 65 new faculty in the last five years and plans to continue expanding the number of faculty in the coming years. CSE and the College of Engineering are committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and seeks to attract and retain a high performing and diverse workforce in which employees’ differences are respected and valued to better meet the varying needs of the diverse populations we serve.

UNL is Nebraska’s land-grant research university and ranks among Doctoral Universities with the Highest Research Activity [Carnegie CIHE]. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is centered in the flourishing community of Lincoln, the third largest city in the Big Ten. More information on Lincoln can be found here: https://www.unl.edu/lincoln/about-lincoln, https://placetobelnk.com/, and https://www.lcoc.com/meet-lincoln.
The CSE department has significant ongoing efforts in Robotics, IoT, cyber-physical systems, and embedded computing. The NIMBUS lab is a leader in leveraging UAS as a platform for interacting in a field environment (e.g., emplacing sensors, placing ignition spheres, water sampling, etc.) with numerous scientific and agricultural application areas. NIMBUS’ leadership and success has been built on the intersection of field robotics, control, human-robot interaction, and software engineering. The CSE department is a leader in Internet of Things (IoT) and Agricultural IoT (Ag-IoT) and also leading the Nebraska IoT Initiative; this initiative established a public-private partnership between the University of Nebraska, City of Lincoln, and a consortium of industry partners. UNL and Lincoln have partnered on major infrastructure initiatives, including a remotely accessible city-wide wireless testbed, and led to the establishment of an interlocal agency, iLNK, to bring IoT investments under a common umbrella. CSE faculty have pioneered cyber-physical systems and real-time, low-power embedded computing.
Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2020. We will continue to review applications until the positions have been filled. Interested applicants are encouraged to continue to apply after this deadline.
