The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (EECE) at
Marquette University seeks candidates for a tenure-track faculty
position in Computer Engineering starting in August 2022.
Appointment will be at the assistant-professor level. Faculty
duties include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels,
research, and supervision of graduate students. Candidates with
expertise in computer vision are especially encouraged to apply.
Areas of emphasis may include but are not limited to robotic vision
and vision for autonomous vehicles; multi-task/multi-modal methods
for contextual video understanding; self-supervised, adversarial,
and reinforcement learning techniques applied to computer vision;
domain adaptation and transfer learning methods for image and video
understanding; integration of computer vision and natural language
processing models; Bayesian models for deep neural networks;
computer vision for embedded devices; edge processing methods for
computer vision; and computer vision for IoT.
Marquette’s EECE department has 15 tenured/tenure track faculty,
including 3 IEEE Fellows and an IEEE Technical Field Award
recipient, one full-time adjunct professor, several part-time
adjuncts, and nearly 200 undergraduate and 70 graduate students.
EECE offers ABET-accredited B.S. in Electrical Engineering
and B.S. in Computer Engineering degrees. Graduate degrees include
five-year B.S./M.S., two certificates, M.S., and Ph.D.
Research in EECE is on a steep upward trajectory, both in
terms of funding and graduate enrollment, with many ongoing
collaborations within EECE and with faculty outside the department
and industry. In 2021, EECE received upwards of $3.6M in
research grants and contracts. EECE research is supported by
state-of-the-art computing facilities: In addition to Marquette’s
high-performance computer cluster, a $1.5M machine customized for
machine-learning workloads, the EECE has recently built its own
high performance computing cluster, comprising ten 24-core
processors, dedicated to supporting the faculty and students in
their machine-learning and computer-vision research.
