Tenure-Track Faculty Positions (all levels) Electrical & Computer Engineering Department-Cornell Tech, Cornell University, New York, New York

The School of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Cornell University invites applications for tenured faculty positions at Cornell Tech, Cornell University's new campus in New York City. Cornell Tech is a graduate research and education campus focused on creating pioneering leaders and technologies for the digital age. This search includes Cornell faculty positions that are part of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech.

We invite applicants at the rank of Associate and Full Professor. Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree and have a demonstrated ability to conduct outstanding research and education.  In keeping with the mission of Cornell Tech, applicants must also have a strong interest in activities that reach beyond academia for external engagement and impact, in areas that may include technology commercialization and entrepreneurship, or activities with non-profit organizations, government and policy issues, international programs, or pre-college (K-12) education (significant record for senior positions).

We are interested in exceptional applicants from any area related to the department's current research trajectories and priorities at the Cornell Tech campus; these include robotics, internet of things and machine learning/data science. Candidates whose work fits into Jacobs Institute application-domain emphases in the areas of cyber-physical systems (especially in urban environments) and health tech are also  encouraged to apply.

Please apply online at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10016. We will begin reviewing and interviewing candidates immediately and continue until positions are filled. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita (CV), brief statements describing research, teaching, and external engagement, and arrange to have at least three reference letters submitted. In the cover letter, CV, or research statement, applicants should identify a small set of their most significant pieces of work. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, K-12 education, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct commercial and societal impact of our research. Accordingly, within a clearly identified subsection of the Research Statement, the candidate should address prior accomplishments and future plans related to this kind of direct commercial and/or societal impact of their research.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage.  We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
