Four Faculty Positions in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Kansas
The University of Kansas (KU) Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science seeks individuals for four tenure track positions in the disciplines of electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science. Our department values diversity in pedagogy, in the curriculum, in outreach to students, and in research. Applicants are expected to have an earned doctorate, or equivalent in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, or related fields at the time of appointment. The successful candidate must be eligible to work in the U.S. by the time of appointment. The ability to possess and maintain a security clearance issued by the U.S. Government is preferred. Applicants pursuing research in areas that are synergistic with departmental strengths are preferred. The following positions are open at the assistant professor (tenure-track) level, with experience in:
Metamaterials & Nano-photonics – Applicants are sought in the areas of nano-photonics; nano-electronics and energy-efficient electronics; next generation microwave/mm-wave/THz devices; 2D materials; advanced optical sources; photo-detectors and sensors; and reconfigurable/time-varying materials. Applicants are sought who apply their expertise to functional devices and systems including, e.g., radar/remote sensing and communications topics for electronic defense, commercial, and scientific applications.
Communications Systems - Applicants are sought in the areas of 5G and machine type communications (MTC) technologies, including but not limited to advanced interference cancellation, massive MIMO; array processing, and adaptive beamforming technologies for secure, scalable; and power/spectral efficient systems. Applicants are sought who apply their expertise to system implementations, e.g., secure communications systems; communications in challenged environments, e.g., civilian disasters, or military (anti-jam); covert/communication/radar/satellite spectrum sharing.
Computer Engineering - Applicants across all areas of computer engineering are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to VLSI design, digital system design, and embedded systems. Applicants are sought who apply their expertise to both core and emerging applications of computer engineering, e.g., secure, high-assurance, and resilient computing systems; the design of application specific systems; neuromorphic computing; and hardware implementation of internet of things (IoT).
Computer Science - Applicants across all areas of theoretical computer science are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to, algorithms, graph/decision/game theory, complexity, constraint satisfaction, algebra, and decidability, and artificial intelligence. Applicants are sought who apply their expertise to both core and emerging applications of computer science, e.g., cybersecurity, high-assurance systems, resiliency, data science, scientific computing, and computational geometry, smart and connected communities.
Exceptional applicants in other closely related areas to the above topics may be considered.
The KU School of Engineering is rapidly expanding with research and teaching facilities. KU is focused on four key campus-wide strategic initiatives. For more information, see http://www.provost.ku.edu/planning/themes/. Successful candidates should describe in their application materials how their work addresses one or more of KU’s strategic initiatives.
Applications should be submitted at http://employment.ku.edu/academic-jobs. Applications should include a letter of application, curriculum vita, a statement of research interests and plans, a statement of teaching interests and plans including efforts to diversify the field of engineering, and contact information for three references. Applications will be reviewed beginning October 15, 2017 and will be accepted until the position is filled. The appointment will be effective as negotiated. Questions can be sent to: EECS_Search@eecs.ku.edu. KU is an EO/AAE. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), age, national origin, disability, genetic information or protected Veteran status.
