Bruce MacDonald
Lecturer/Senior Lecturer Electrical & Computer Engineering

The University of Auckland is New Zealand's pre-eminent research-led 
University. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is one 
of the largest departments in the Faculty of Engineering, with nearly 30 
academic staff, 550 undergraduates and more than 120 postgraduate students.

We provide undergraduate degree programmes in Electrical and Electronics 
Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering and in Software Engineering 
(together with the Department of Computer Science) with a range of 
postgraduate taught courses.

We offer a diverse and active community for research at and above 
postgraduate level, and we are proud of our strong international 
reputation for the quality of our research outputs.

Our research activities broadly concern computer systems engineering, 
embedded systems, reconfigurable and parallel computing, robotics and 
medical devices, industrial informatics, digital communications, 
inductive power transfer, power electronics, control and software 
engineering. We have collaborative links with research groups and 
industry within New Zealand and across the world.

The successful applicant will work as part of the Computer Systems 
Engineering research, CSE, (embedded systems, robotics) of the 
Department and will be required to develop research collaborations with 
researchers both within and outside the CSE.

Current research interests include embedded systems architectures and 
software, reconfigurable computing, distributed embedded systems, 
wireless senor and actuator networks, and applications in various 
domains (e.g. robotics, industrial informatics and control).

You will be research-focussed and be required to undertake high quality 
research, researcher supervision and teaching in the general area of 
computer systems. You will also contribute to the wider activities of 
the computer systems engineering research and to perform service roles 
for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

You will have a PhD in a relevant area. You will also have a 
demonstrated ability to conduct research, supervise postgraduate 
students and publish in high quality journals.
