Job Details

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE ILLINOIS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for faculty positions at all areas and levels in computing, broadly defined, with particular emphasis on cybersecurity and reliability; embedded systems, cyber-physical systems, and the internet of things; networked and distributed computing; data-centric computing systems and storage; quantum computing; robotics and machine vision; machine learning and AI; and bio computation, and health, among other areas. Applications are encouraged from candidates whose research programs specialize in core as well as interdisciplinary areas of electrical and computer engineering. 

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.

Senior level appointments with tenure are available for persons of international stature. Qualified senior candidates may also be considered for tenured full professor positions as part of the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative (graingerinitiative.engineering.illinois.edu), which is backed by a $100-million gift from the Grainger Foundation.

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 is opening on campus in the fall of 2018.  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, and 75 Ph.D. degrees annually. ECE ILLINOIS is housed in its new 235,000 sq. ft. net-zero energy design building, which is a major campus addition with minimal carbon footprint.

In order to ensure full consideration by the Search Committee, applications must be received by November 15, 2017.  Applications will be reviewed until suitable candidates are identified. Interviews and offers may take place before the deadline but all applications received by the deadline would receive full consideration.  Salary will be commensurate with qualifications.  Preferred starting date is August 16, 2018, but is negotiable.  Applications can be submitted by going to http://jobs.illinois.edu and uploading a cover letter, CV, research statement, and teaching statement, along with names of three references.
