The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Villanova University is seeking applications for a continuing non-tenure track position with the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor whose focus is in cybersecurity. The teaching load is on average 12 contact hours per semester at both the graduate and undergraduate level. Cybersecurity is the newest and the largest graduate program in the department offering a wide variety of courses of timely subjects. Candidates are sought who can contribute to and lead this growth, teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, define and lead multidisciplinary Capstone design projects and participate in the advising of thesis projects.
This position is expected to teach primarily graduate courses in cybersecurity and computer engineering field, including cryptography and network security, cybersecurity threats, computer forensics, malware analysis and cyber-physical systems security. Other duties include contribution to the undergraduate curriculum, laboratory development and supervision of Capstone design projects. Candidates are expected to participate at all levels of the undergraduate ECE programs when needed.
The ECE Department has recently received a major gift for the construction of a state-of-the-art Cyber-Physical Systems Security Lab. This facility will provide unique hands-on opportunities for teaching and research in this emerging field. The cybersecurity program is supported by the Cyber-Physical Systems Security Lab, so that candidate is expected to integrate the facility in the curriculum and leverage the resources to expand the program.
