The Electrical and Computer Engineering department invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in (i) robotics with particular emphasis on human-robot interaction, robot learning, and formal methods for robot autonomy, and (ii) digital communications focused on future wireless networks including 5G and beyond, Internet-of-Things, and artificial intelligence for future communication networks such as massive unmanned vehicle networks. While the search is mainly focused on an Assistant Professor position, more senior candidates with exceptional records will still be considered.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has over 32 faculty members, including 13 Fellows of the IEEE, AAAS or other professional societies, and many of our junior faculty members have been awarded Young Investigator/CAREER awards. The ECE department trains over 200 graduate students and receives annually over $8.0 million in research funding. Research areas in the department include computer engineering, controls and robotics, intelligent systems including computer vision, machine learning and transportation, smart grids and energy, nano materials and devices, and signal processing and communications. Multiple ECE faculty collaborate with other faculty in the campus research centers, including the Center for Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE), the Winston Chung Global Energy Center (WCGEC), the Center for Research in Intelligent Systems, and the College of Engineering's Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT).
Successful candidates will have a proven record of, or exceptional promise for, developing a vibrant externally-funded research program, as well as a portfolio of high quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels; and will be expected to maintain an active research agenda and record of publications; teach a regular course load at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; and to participate in service activities at department, college campus, and professional levels. They should also demonstrate clear potential for complementing and/or synergistically leveraging existing research activities within the department, college and campus. Applicants must be "all but dissertation" or have met the requirements for the PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering or a closely related field by time of appointment, July 1, 2020.
Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input. Appointments are expected to begin July 1, 2020. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience.
