MULTIPLE FACULTY POSITIONS IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Oregon State University | College of Engineering
The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Oregon State University invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions in energy systems, packaging and integration, and materials and devices. These positions are part of a university-wide initiative to strengthen and support the university’s vision of leading world-class, team-based, interdisciplinary research and education.
The initiative includes over $200 million in planned public and private investments in facilities, equipment, faculty hiring and programs, including the construction of the Jen-Hsun and Lori Huang Collaborative Innovation Complex (CIC), to help propel Oregon State’s mission to pursue groundbreaking solutions for the betterment of humanity, the environment and the economy. The complex will harness one of the nation’s most powerful supercomputers designed to solve the world’s most challenging computational problems, a state-of-the-art clean room and other specialized research facilities purposely designed to facilitate team-based research. Through this effort, engineering faculty will collaborate with world-renowned faculty and nationally-ranked programs in ocean, earth and climate science to empower success and address the grand challenges in climate science, oceanography, sustainability, and water resources to improve the quality of human life.
The appointments will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, but exceptionally qualified candidates may be considered for Associate or Full Professorship. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or an equivalent degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering or a closely related discipline by the expected start date of Fall 2023.
Successful applicants will demonstrate capability for building a robust research program that complements existing expertise in the School of EECS and enhances the scope for collaborative and multidisciplinary projects with the Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute; the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences; the Hatfield Marine Science Center; and the Oregon Health and Science University, among other organizations. Successful applicants will also demonstrate a passion for and excellence in teaching and mentoring, with a strong commitment to promoting inclusion and equity for learners from diverse groups. The applicants are expected to be able to teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses in electrical and computer engineering in different modalities as required.
The School of EECS has over 100 faculty members (of which 66 are tenured or on the tenure track) and more than 3900 undergraduate and 450 graduate students. Numerous national awards attest to the scholarly accomplishments and distinction of the faculty: two inductees in the National Academy of Engineering, 23 professional society fellows and 27 winners of prestigious early-career investigator awards. Students and faculty members have access to extensive shared-use equipment for the fabrication and characterization of electronic materials and devices in the Materials Synthesis and Characterization (MaSC) Facility, for characterization and testing of IC prototypes in the Analog & Mixed Signals and Systems Lab, and for high power testing in The Wallace Energy Systems & Renewables Facility (WESRF). Additionally, the new $200 million Collaborative Innovation Complex (CIC) at Oregon State University will provide rich resources to support innovation and entrepreneurship. The complex will harness one of the nation’s most powerful supercomputer designed to solve the world’s most challenging computational problems, a purpose built clean room, and other specialized research facilities purposely designed to facilitate team-based research. The CIC will further increase opportunities for collaboration with industry partners in Oregon’s silicon forest and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Oregon State University (OSU) is located in Corvallis, a welcoming, multicultural college town with nearly 60,000 residents. Corvallis is ranked among the top ten places to live in the U.S. OSU is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and is committed to continuing to build and support a diverse and inclusive community of faculty, students and staff. The university actively supports dual-career opportunities. The College of Engineering is third among tier-one public universities for the percentage of women faculty members in its ranks. We particularly encourage women, members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who share our vision of an inclusive community to apply.
