ECE Research Track Faculty Position

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon has research track faculty openings.

Exceptional candidates in all areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering will be given serious consideration.

The College of Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are both ranked among the top programs in the United States both at the undergraduate and graduate level. The faculty has strong ties with many multidisciplinary centers and institutes such as the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems (graduated NSF ERC), Software Engineering Institute, Human Computer Interaction Institute, The Robotics Institute, and the Information Networking Institute. The department is home to several multidisciplinary centers and laboratories such as the Data Storage Systems Center (Graduated NSF ERC), Center for Silicon System Implementation, Microelectromechanical Systems Laboratory, SRC Smart Grid Research Center, the Parallel Data Laboratory, and the Computer Architecture Lab at Carnegie Mellon. Faculty members in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering also have ties and collaborations with colleagues around the world through a number of formal research and educational programs. The department has extensive experimental and computing infrastructure. The department currently maintains state of the art nanofabrication facilities and will be significantly expanding these in both capability and scale within the next few years.

Research track faculty members are not required to teach and may therefore focus exclusively on developing their leadership within their area of research, developing research collaborations and supervising PhD students. Occasionally, research track faculty members may teach if they and the department feel this would advance their programs. We expect candidates for a research track position to have a strong commitment to research. The department is primarily seeking individuals for faculty positions at the Assistant Research Professor rank. Applicants must have earned a doctorate in a related area by the date of appointment. Applications should include a comprehensive resume, a list of three to five professional references, a statement of research interests (less than 2 pages), and copies of two research papers (journal or conference papers). The applicant is responsible for soliciting the reference letters to be sent directly to the address below.
