The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Carnegie Mellon University is accepting applications from candidates for tenure-, research-, and teaching-track positions at all ranks for our Pittsburgh campus. Positions are available in all areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The ECE department and College of Engineering are ranked among the top programs in the United States, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We are an extremely collaborative department with ties to several multidisciplinary institutes and centers. We collaborate with colleagues around the world through a number of research and educational programs. We have world-class experimental and computing infrastructure, including state-of-the-art nanofabrication facilities.

Our mission is to be a creative driving force of the highest scholarly and entrepreneurial quality that will inspire and educate engineers to solve important societal challenges. The foundation of our collaborative research is based on a strong practice of inclusion. We take pride and active steps in considering a diverse applicant pool in terms of gender, race, veteran status, and disability.

For all tracks, we are seeking individuals who hold a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and have demonstrated commitment to our core values: creativity, quality, innovation, and engineering solutions.

-Tenure-track faculty carry a moderate teaching load that allows time for quality research and close involvement with students. We expect Tenure-track faculty to establish and grow a strong research program, contribute to our teaching mission, and demonstrate a passion for mentoring and advising students.
-Research-track faculty are not required to teach but do so when it is mutually beneficial to the faculty and the department. Research-track faculty are compensated for both teaching and advising Ph.D. students. These faculty members primarily focus on developing leadership within one or more areas of research, forming research collaborations, and supervising Ph.D. students.
-Teaching-track faculty focus primarily on teaching but our curriculum includes research opportunities as well. Teaching-track faculty serve as a core part of our strategy for our undergraduate education and mentoring mission.

Apply here.
Applications must include a curriculum vitae, research, teaching, and diversity statements, and three to five letters of recommendation. Our application review process will begin on October 1, 2022. We will consider applications fitting our needs throughout the academic year. Carnegie Mellon is an EEO/Affirmative Action Employer -- M/F/Disability/Veteran.
