The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) invites applications for three Research Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) in the area of Electrical and Computer Engineering, with emphasis on the development of modeling electromagnetic behavior of active & passive implantable medical devices during magnetic resonance (MR) scanning, and assessing the related safety issues which include, but not limited to, heating, rectification, and malfunction.

The primary responsibility is to research behavior modeling of active/passive implantable medical devise under MR, design of related measuring methods/instruments, validate the modeling and evaluate the MR safety for active/passive implantable medical devices. The candidates are expected to have strong theoretical and experimental background in MRI safety analysis, electromagnetic theory, microwave engineering, computational electromagnetics, with a strong background in electromagnetic modeling using HFSS/SEMCAD, electromagnetic compatibility analysis. A proven record of MR safety knowledge, electromagnetic modeling and analysis, waveguide modeling, bioheat transfer simulation, and simulations and measurements for MR safety issues is required for appointment.

These appointments are for 12 months and renewable dependent on funding for the positions. The positions' start date is November 1, 2021. Continued employment and the possibility of reappointment are contingent upon availability of funding, annual review, and continued need for the position within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. For more information, please visit the department website at: http://www.ece.uh.edu/

Applicants must have earned doctorate in Electrical Engineering or closely related filed at the time of application.

The University of Houston is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Minorities, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Additionally, the University prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Qualifications :

This MR safety research is conducted by highly dynamic team members. The candidates are expected to assume a leadership position in several aspects of this research effort. Thus prior experience on the supervision of masters, PhD and/or Post-Doctoral level team members, and excellent oral and written communication skills, as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications and presentations are required.

Position 1 & 2:

The candidates should have a solid background in electromagnetics. The candidates will work in the area of MR safety for active implantable medical devices. The candidates should be able to perform electromagnetic simulations with software packages such as Sim4Life, HFSS, and carry out experimental studies. Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering is preferred. The candidates should have at least 3-year experience with medical safety under MRI.

Position 3:

The candidate should have a solid background in electromagnetics. The candidate will work in the area of MR safety f or passive imp lantable medical devices. The candidates should be able to perform electromagnetic simulations with software packages such as Sim4Life, HFSS, and carry out experimental studies. Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering is preferred. The candidate should have at least 3-year experience with medical safety under MRI.

Notes to Applicant: Official transcripts are required for a faculty appointment and will be requested upon selection of final candidates. All positions at the University of Houston are security sensitive and will require a criminal history check.
