The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Boston University (BU) is seeking candidates for several faculty positions. We expect to hire a tenured faculty candidate in the general areas of photonics, solid-state devices and nanostructures. We also expect two tenure track hires at the assistant professor level: one in the areas of software, systems and cybersecurity and another in the areas of optimization, machine learning and information systems. The Department is seeking to foster growth in the broad, interdisciplinary topics of energy, health, information systems, and cyberphysical systems. Candidates with research interests that transcend the traditional boundaries of ECE are strongly encouraged to apply and explore potential collaborations with BU’s multidisciplinary centers such as the Photonics Center and the Center for Information and Systems Engineering. Joint appointments with other BU departments and with the Division of Material Science & Engineering and Division of Systems Engineering are available for candidates with appropriate experience and interests.
Qualified candidates must possess a relevant, earned Ph.D., and have a demonstrable ability to teach effectively at graduate and undergraduate levels, develop funded research programs in their area of expertise, and contribute to the tradition of excellence in research that is characteristic of the ECE Department. Self-motivated individuals who thrive on challenge and are eager to utilize their expertise to strengthen an ambitious program of departmental enhancement are desired. Women, minorities, and candidates from other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply and help us continue building an exceptional 21st century university department.
