Faculty Search 2017-18

The Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering (ECEE) at the University of Colorado Boulder seeks faculty candidates for up to three tenure-track faculty positions beginning August 2017. The openings are targeted at the level of Assistant Professor, but experienced candidates with outstanding credentials may be considered at any rank.

Qualified candidates in all areas of ECEE will be considered with priority areas including computer engineering, DSP and network analysis, data analysis for complex systems, organic and flexible electronics, nanomaterials and devices, optics/photonics, and systems/controls.  We are searching for innovative and collaborative researchers and educators that will contribute in one or more of our department's strong research areas. Candidates that bridge disciplines, have synergistic interests with existing faculty, or bring unique capabilities are encouraged to highlight these in their application materials.

Candidates must have a PhD in electrical engineering or related disciplines; successful candidates must have the ability to develop an independent research program, enthusiasm to work with other faculty in the department and dedication to teaching at all levels.

The department includes two University Distinguished Professors, 14 Full, 13 Associate and nine Assistant Professors. Faculty honors include 14 IEEE Fellows, 2 members of the US National Academy of Engineering, a NSF Presidential Faculty Fellow and 10 NSF CAREER Award recipients. The ECEE program consists of about 350 undergraduate and 300 graduate students, and has averaged over $12.5 million in annual research grants. The department maintains close ties with local industry and national institutes/labs such as NIST, NREL and NOAA.

Complete applications submitted by Dec. 1, 2016, will receive full consideration, though applications received after this date will continue to be reviewed until the positions are filled. Applications must include a cover letter specifying the area of specialization, complete curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information of at least three references. Applications must be submitted online at CU Careers (position #00725922).
