The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Portland State University seeks outstanding candidates for one or several tenure-track faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor, with research and teaching interests in two areas: (1) electric power systems or (2) computer engineering.
The position will work closely with other members of the ECE Department and Maseeh College interdisciplinary research focused on areas of either electric power systems or computer engineering. These include (1) cyber-physical power systems, power system data science, power systems cybersecurity, or power systems protection, or (2) beyond-Moore computing architectures, nanoscale computing architectures, neuromorphic engineering, biomolecular computing, future and emerging computing paradigms and architectures, design automation, or design verification and validation. Other power or computer engineering areas will also be considered.
The position will build a research and teaching program through actions that contribute to the Department’s aims to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion within the ECE Department. It will develop and maintain scholarly funded research; develop coursework relevant to the research field; teach undergraduate and graduate courses; advise students; and provide service to the university, professional societies, and the public.
The position will initiate a research program that can be sponsored by external funding agencies. This program should expand, complement, and collaborate with the existing research activities in the ECE Department and/or build connections within the broader community. Research should also align with the strategic vision of the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science and/or the strategic vision of the ECE Department.
The ECE Department, building on existing strengths, is expanding its research and teaching in both computer and power engineering. Our faculty have excellent teaching skills and constructively engage with the regional power and semiconductor industries. Emphasis is placed on research originality, future potential, ability to collaborate, and research agendas that are regionally relevant and complement our existing research programs.
The anticipated start date for this position is September 16, 2024, but earlier or later dates can be negotiated. While the target of hiring is at the assistant professor level, outstanding applicants may be considered at the associate or professor rank.
Position requirements: PhD in Electrical Engineering, or Computer Engineering, or Electrical & Computer Engineering, or related discipline, required by 09/15/2024.
Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled.
