Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, Oklahoma invites highly qualified candidates to apply for tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). (Other ranks may be considered depending on the candidate’s level of experience.) The School seeks candidates with expertise in the broad areas of a) computer engineering (including scalable and parallel architectures, machine learning architectures, system-on-a-chip and network-on-a-chip architectures, energy efficient devices, high-performance and/or application-specific computer architectures, post-CMOS electronics, edge devices, storage and memory, GPU utilization, etc.) and b) electrical power and energy engineering (including renewable energy systems and their integration, distribution, protection, storage, micro-grids, electric machines, power conversion, wide area measurement, etc.). In all cases the School is specifically interested in candidates whose research is demonstrably hardware focused and/or experimental in nature in the context of electrical engineering or computer engineering applications. Applicants should clearly identify in their cover letter in bold font their area of expertise as a) computer engineering or b) power and energy engineering. The School intends to hire two highly qualified candidates (contingent on available funds) in either or both of the aforementioned areas. Other areas will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Qualifications: Candidates must have an earned Ph.D. or equivalent in electrical engineering or computer engineering, or closely related field. Successful candidates will be expected to develop an externally funded, internationally recognized research program, to excel in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to serve the School and their profession. Strong oral and written communication skills, and the ability to work individually and in teams are required. Engineering experience within industry or government laboratories is highly desired, but not required. Candidates, who can utilize, share, leverage, and develop existing ECE research laboratories are especially encouraged to apply.

Electrical and Computer Engineering: The School currently has 19 full-time faculty members, approximately 435 undergraduate students, 65 graduate students, and state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories. Relevant to this search, the School operates the VLSI Computer Architecture Research Laboratory, Mixed-Signal VLSI Laboratory, the Ultrafast THz Optoelectronics Laboratory, and the Robust Electromagnetic Field Testing and Simulation Laboratory. Numerous opportunities exist for collaboration with OSU’s internationally recognized Unmanned Systems Research Institute and the New Product Development Center.

The School offers the BS, MS, MEng, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and the BS degree in Computer Engineering. The School’s baccalaureate programs are ABET accredited. Research thrusts within the School include power and energy, computer engineering, digital and analog electronics, control systems, communications, electromagnetics, signal processing, and THz/optical systems.

Applications: Applications received on or prior to November 1, 2019 will be fully screened. Applications will be accepted until the positions have been filled or the search has been terminated. The first day of employment is tentatively scheduled for August 1, 2020. Any questions may be sent to
