The Department of Electrical Engineering in the College of
Engineering invites applications for tenured/tenure-track faculty
positions at the Senior (Associate and Full Professor) or Junior
(Assistant Professor) level. Preferred candidates should have
completed or be near completion of a Ph.D. in Electrical
Engineering or a closely related field. The positions are expected
to commence August 2022. Qualified candidates should have
demonstrated excellence in scholarly research and publications, the
strong potential for sustaining an externally funded research
program, and a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring
undergraduate and graduate students. Candidates for senior ranks at
the Associate/Full Professor level must have demonstrated
exceptional capabilities in externally funded research,
instruction, and mentoring of students. Successful applicants are
expected to conduct research and teach in areas across the
electrical engineering discipline with a preference on the
following topics: 1) radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs)
and systems, analog and mixed-signal RFIC designs and/or RF
interfaces in advanced silicon and related emerging technologies,
specifically in the areas of CMOS and SiGe RFIC design with
targeted applications in millimeter-wave and/or terahertz (THz)
wireless communications; 2) next-generation wireless communication
and/or radar systems, with a particular focus on the innovative
hardware/software implementation and emerging technology in machine
learning and artificial intelligence, quantum photonics for
communications, sensing, and computing. Successful candidates must
be committed to the academic success of students, value and
encourage diversity, and support collaborations with areas of
excellence, such as the Center for Wireless and Microwave
Information Systems (WAMI) recognized internationally for its
mission to offer integrated research and education programs in
wireless and microwave technology, across the college and
university, and beyond.
