ECE Department Faculty Positions

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of
Denver (DU) is growing rapidly and it will continue its expansion over the
next five years. In the past two years we have brought onboard four new
faculty at all ranks in the areas of MEMS/NEMS, robotics, computer vision,
and unmanned systems. ECE is currently seeking at least two outstanding
candidates at the Assistant / Associate Professor rank to complement these
new hires, preferably in the areas of: i) Wireless Communication with
applications in networks, sensors, bio-systems, security, and smart
infrastructure networks, and, ii) Renewable Energy with applications to
solar, wind energy, fuel cells, hybrid, clean energy and sustainable
systems. However, very exceptional candidates at all ranks and in all areas
of Electrical and Computer Engineering will be considered, particularly
those that support DU's existing strengths in Mechatronics/Robotics,
MEMS/NEMS, and related areas.  

Applicants should have a PhD in Electrical or Computer Engineering or
closely related fields with outstanding credentials demonstrating ability to
conduct independent research, be capable of establishing high-quality
educational and research programs leading to peer-reviewed publications and
funding, as well as willingness to teach undergraduate courses. Partnership
with industry, our global community, and other programs within DU is at the
core of our School's mission. Tenure-track entry-level junior faculty
members are offered reduced teaching load for a five-year period. 

ECE and the School offer very diverse undergraduate and graduate degrees,
interdisciplinary and cross-discipline courses coupled with very well
equipped laboratories. Research focus areas include nano/micro systems,
networks, photonics, mechatronics, robotics, embedded systems, and unmanned
systems. DU offers a very competitive salary and start-up package, and has a
generous benefit package. 

The University of Denver is an AA/EOE.  Applicants should apply online at
www.dujobs.org and provide: (1) cover letter and position applying for; (2)
curriculum vitae; (3) at least four references with contact information; (4)
statement of research vision; and (5) statement of teaching interests.
These positions will stay open until filled.  Review of applications begins
immediately.

For specific questions, contact Richard Voyles at rvoyles at du.edu or Kimon
Valavanis at Kimon.Valavanis at du.edu.
