The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign (ECE ILLINOIS) invites applications for full-time faculty positions. Senior and mid-career faculty are encouraged to apply, but all qualified candidates will be considered at all levels and in all areas of electrical and computer engineering, broadly defined, with particular emphasis in the areas of Computational and Physical Aspects of Electronics and Electromagnetics; Power and Energy Systems; Quantum Computing; Bioacoustics and Bioimaging; Circuits - System on a Chip; AI/Autonomous Systems; Robotics; Machine Vision; Embedded Computing Systems and the Internet of Things; Data- Centric Computer Systems and Storage; Networked and Distributed Computing Systems. Applications are encouraged from candidates whose degree and research programs are in core as well as broad interdisciplinary areas of electrical and computer engineering. Ideal candidates include those who demonstrate evidence of a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service endeavors.
Applicants for positions at the assistant professor level must have an earned Ph.D. or equivalent degree, excellent academic credentials, and an outstanding ability to teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Successful candidates will be expected to initiate and carry out independent research and to perform academic duties associated with our B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. programs.
Qualified senior candidates may also be considered for tenured Associate Professor and Full Professor positions as part of the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative. Over the next few years, more than 35 new endowed professorships and chairs will be established in areas of strategic interest to The Grainger College of Engineering. Such areas include, but are not limited to, bioengineering, big data, quantum information, robotics and machine learning. More information about the Grainger Initiative (GEBI) can be found at https://grainger.illinois.edu/research/grainger-breakthroughs.
ECE ILLINOIS is in a period of intense demand and growth, serving over 3000 students and averaging 7 new tenure-track faculty hires per year in recent years. Faculty in the department carry out research in a broad spectrum of areas and are supported by world-class interdisciplinary research facilities, including the Coordinated Science Laboratory, the Information Trust Institute, the Parallel Computing Institute, the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, as well as several industrial centers and programs that foster international collaborations. The ECE Department also supports and encourages faculty involvement with the Nation's first engineering-based College of Medicine that has opened on campus. The plans are to facilitate transition from engineering breakthroughs into translational medical practices. The department has one of the very top programs in the United States, granting approximately 450 B.S. degrees, 100 M.S. degrees, 80 M.Eng. degrees, and 75 Ph.D. degrees annually. ECE ILLINOIS is housed in its new 235,000 sq. ft. building designed to set a new standard in energy efficiency which is a major campus addition with minimal carbon footprint.
