The University of Kansas (KU) Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) seeks outstanding individuals for a tenure track position in Computer Engineering. Successful candidates are expected to contribute to the development of academic and research programs and to contribute to the research community. Applicants are expected to have an earned doctorate, or equivalent in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or closely related fields at the time of appointment. The following position is open at the assistant professor (tenure-track) level, with the possibility of higher rank for the exceptional applicant, with experience in:

Computer Engineering: Applicants across all areas of computer engineering are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to VLSI design, digital system design, and embedded systems. Applicants are sought who apply their expertise to both core and emerging applications of computer engineering, e.g., secure, high-assurance, and resilient computing systems; the design of application specific systems; neuromorphic computing; and hardware implementation of internet of things (IoT).

Exceptional applicants in other closely related areas to the above topics may be considered.

The successful candidate must be eligible to work in the U.S. by the effective date of appointment.

The successful candidate will be expected to pursue research in areas that are synergistic with departmental strengths.

EECS leads the KU School of Engineering with 36 faculty members and a research volume of about $4.8 million per year. The EECS department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, interdisciplinary computing, and information technology. The department has approximately 600 undergraduate and 200 graduate students. EECS faculty engage in collaborative research projects across multiple areas of interest within the department and the University. There are many interdisciplinary opportunities involving schools at KU and the KU Medical Center.

The KU School of Engineering has added new faculty lines over a 5 year period and has expanded research and teaching facilities. The University of Kansas is focused on four key campus-wide strategic initiatives: (1) Sustaining the Planet, Powering the World; (2) Promoting Well-Being, Finding Cures; (3) Building Communities, Expanding Opportunities; and (4) Harnessing Information, Multiplying Knowledge. For more information, see http://www.provost.ku.edu/planning/themes/ .
