The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boise State University is hiring multiple tenure-track positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor levels. Preferred areas of specialization are described below, but should encompass semiconductor device processing and fabrication, semiconductor device physics, integrated circuit design, and/or computer systems engineering with emphasis in cyber-physical systems, cybersecurity, or emerging computing architectures. Additional expectations include excellence in teaching and instruction, supervision and mentorship of graduate and undergraduate students, and service to the community and profession.
Candidates applying in the area of semiconductor devices should have experience with any combination of fabrication, characterization, or simulation of new logic or memory device technologies using novel materials and structures. Planned use of the Idaho Microfabrication Laboratory (IML) for device and circuit fabrication and obtaining external funding that supports research in the IML is a plus.
Candidates in the area of integrated circuit design should have experience with chip design, validation, and tapeout using advanced foundry nodes. Applications for these circuits could span many areas including cybersecurity, novel computing architectures, biomedical engineering, etc., but some experience with design automation is a plus.
Candidates in the area of computer systems engineering should have experience with cyber-physical systems, embedded systems, and how to secure systems through cyber-informed engineering. Other focus areas could include emerging hardware and computer architectures such as neuromorphic systems, systems-on-chip, or processing-in-memory systems.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is part of the vibrant College of Engineering, which is ranked in the top 150 colleges by US News & World Report for both undergraduate and graduate programs. The College offers a variety of accredited programs and receives a high level of support from industry in Idaho and the intermountain west. Our vision is to be a leading student success-driven college recognized for teaching and scholarship with statewide and global impact.
