The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Purdue University has identified novel paradigms in computing and information systems as a thrust for cross-disciplinary research and
education and are accepting applications for two tenure-track or tenured faculty positions at all ranks. The next generation of computing and information systems will need to be highly intelligent,
large scale, parallel, and distributed. This will only be possible through the introduction of novel paradigms in the design and architecture of hardware, software, and algorithms and in their interdisciplinary application to physical, scientific, engineering, and societal challenges.
Successful candidates are expected to have demonstrated a strong track record of research in computer systems engineering with possible expertise in machine learning, computer systems hardware
and software, algorithms, information processing, communications, data science, and control.

Applicants may also bridge to other areas of internationally recognized strengths at Purdue (;;, and
leverage these and similar thrusts to build bridges to ongoing college and university-wide interdisciplinary efforts in the broader area of data sciences


Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering or a related discipline and demonstrate excellent potential to build an independent research program at the forefront of their field, as well as potential to educate and mentor students. The successful candidates will conduct original research, advise graduate students, teach undergraduate and graduate level courses, and perform service both at the School and University levels. Candidates with experience working with diverse groups of students, faculty, and staff and the ability to contribute to an inclusive climate are particularly encouraged to apply.
