The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ece.gatech.edu) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) invites applications for tenure track faculty positions at all ranks in the following Technical Interest Areas (TIAs): Computer Systems and Software, Digital Signal Processing, Systems and Controls, and Telecommunications. These are full-time positions with the Georgia Tech Shenzhen Institute (GTSI) in Shenzhen, China. These positions will reside in China only.
GTSI is a Joint Institute between Georgia Tech and Tianjin University (TJU) and is located in Shenzhen, the so-called "Silicon Valley of China." GTSI has received approval from the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and the Chinese Ministry of Education to offer Georgia Tech’s existing Master’s degree programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Analytics, Computer Science, Environmental Engineering, and Industrial Design, as well as the PhD degree program in ECE. Georgia Tech is fully responsible for Georgia Tech academic program operations at GTSI.
According to the U.S. News and World Report, Georgia Tech’s undergraduate Electrical Engineering (EE) program is currently ranked No. 4 and its graduate EE program is ranked No. 5 in the U.S.; Georgia Tech’s undergraduate Computer Engineering (CompE) program is currently ranked No. 5 and its graduate CompE program is ranked No. 5 in the U.S.
Successful GTSI faculty candidates will be expected to teach courses from Georgia Tech’s curriculum in ECE in the aforementioned TIAs, mentor students, engage in field-related professional achievement and activity, and perform service to GTSI and the professional society.
Candidates can apply to either of the following two tracks which differ in teaching load and research expectations.
- Teaching track: Teaching and service constitute the criteria for advancement for GTSI faculty on the teaching track.
