The University of Kansas (KU) Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science seeks individuals for three tenure track positions in the disciplines of electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science. Candidates are expected to contribute to the development of academic and research programs and to the research community. Applicants are expected to have an earned doctorate, or equivalent in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, or related fields at the time of appointment. The successful candidate must be eligible to work in the U.S. by the time of appointment. Applicants pursuing research in areas that are synergistic with departmental strengths are preferred. The following positions are open at the assistant professor (tenure-track) level, with the possibility of higher rank for the exceptional applicant, with experience in:
Cybersecurity – Any area in Security and Privacy, including but not limited to systems security, network security, information security and privacy.
Static analysis – including but not limited to: automated software engineering; program analysis; partial evaluation; symbolic execution; and model checking. Application areas including high-assurance systems; resiliency; trustworthy systems; and secure systems are particularly desirable.
Wireless Communications, Devices and Applications – Applicants are sought in the areas of 5G/IoT/V2X technologies, including but not limited to, distributed, multi-channel signal processing, processing, and adaptive beamforming technologies for secure, scalable, and power/spectral efficient systems; massive MIMO; millimeter-wave circuits and/or systems. Applicants are sought who apply their expertise to implementation of applications, including but not limited to: challenged environments, e.g., civilian disasters, or military (anti-jam), or, covert/communication/radar spectrum sharing; telemetry and remote sensing; and smart grid communications systems for power distribution and monitoring.
Exceptional applicants in other closely related areas to the above topics may be considered. The KU School of Engineering is rapidly expanding with research and teaching facilities. KU is focused on four key campus-wide strategic initiatives. For more information, see http://www.provost.ku.edu/planning/themes/. Successful candidates should describe in their application materials how their work addresses one or more of KU"s strategic initiatives.
Applications should be submitted online at the links provided above for the appropriate position. Applications should include a letter of application, curriculum vita, a statement of research interests and plans, a statement of teaching interests and plans, and contact information for three references. Applications will be reviewed beginning October 15, 2016 and will be accepted until the position is filled. The appointment will be effective as negotiated.
