Electrical and Computer Engineering Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Ithaca, NY

The SCHOOL OF ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY in Ithaca, New York, invites applications for one or more tenure-track Faculty positions in all areas of electrical and computer engineering. We are particularly interested in outstanding candidates that can make an impact on the following areas:

Advanced Nanoelectronic Devices, where candidates will push the limits of the many avenues of nanodiscovery and make useful devices/circuits from them. Such individuals will be able to leverage Cornell's strength in solid-state physics, materials, and nanosciences, as well as our world-class Nanoscale Science & Technology Facility (CNF).

Ubiquitous Networked Data Processing, including but not limited to applications to Internet of Things, Cyberphysical Systems, and Large-Scale Data Centers. We are particularly interested in candidates that are experts in one or more of the following core areas: high-dimensional statistics/machine learning; modern optimization and control techniques; embedded systems and hardware; data networks; storage systems and hardware.

Applied Electromagnetics, where we seek excellent candidates that can make an impact broadly on the following challenges: (1) Electromagnetics applied to circuits, devices, antennae, etc., to move beyond the standard design tools based upon Kirchhoff's laws to include more complete electromagnetic theory where appropriate. (2) Pulsed Electromagnetics, including ultra-fast electromagnetic and optoelectronic imaging techniques. (3) Power- and Energy-related Electromagnetics at large scale (e.g., switching high voltage DC).

Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field by the time their Faculty appointment begins. They must have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research and show promise for excellent teaching. Applications at all levels will be considered; salary and rank are commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a teaching statement, three recent publications, and complete contact information for at least three references.
