ECE Silicon Valley Faculty Positions

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon has research faculty openings on Carnegie Mellon’s Silicon Valley Campus.

Exceptional candidates in all areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering will be given serious consideration, but especially those in mobile systems, networking, sensor networks, wireless communications, cyber-physical systems, distributed systems, security and embedded software and hardware systems.

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 ECE 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, the Information Networking Institute and the Cyber Security Center. 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. ECE PhD and MS degrees are offered on the Silicon Valley Campus as are MS degrees in Software Engineering, Software Management, and Information Networking. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, the Silicon Valley Campus is the home of the Mobility Research Center, an Nvidia Center of Excellence for high-performance computing, and some 150 students and 50 faculty and researchers, in a vibrant research and educational community. Carnegie Mellon University has over 5,000 alumni working in the Bay Area. With a growing faculty and graduate student population, the Silicon Valley campus offers unique opportunities for teaching, research, entrepreneurship and collaborations with colleagues on campus and in industry both locally, in Pittsburgh, and around the world. A moderate teaching load allows time for quality research and close involvement with students and other faculty. The department is primarily seeking individuals for research faculty positions at the Assistant Research Professor rank possibly as joint appointments in both ECE and SV; under unusual circumstances and commensurate with the qualifications of the individuals, appointments may be made at more senior levels. 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 and teaching interests (less than 2 pages each), 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.
