  • ECE Tenure-Track Faculty at Cornell Tech

    New York, New York

    The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University invites applications for tenured/tenure-track 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 welcome exceptional applicants in all research areas and at all levels of seniority. We are particularly interested in applicants from areas broadly relevant to the current research trajectories and priorities at the Cornell Tech campus; these include robotics; cyberphysical systems; computer systems; Internet of things; large-scale data processing, communication, and storage; security/privacy; and machine learning/data science. 

    Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. 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. Applicants for senior positions should have a demonstrated track record of such external engagement. 

    Please apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15008. We will begin reviewing and interviewing candidates immediately and continue until positions are filled.  Applications received by December 15, 2019 will be given full consideration. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae (CV), brief statements describing research, teaching, and external engagement, a statement of diversity, equity, and inclusion, 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.

  • Teaching Assistants - ECE 3400 (Intelligent Physical Systems)

    Ithaca, NY

    I am looking for undergraduate TAs for ECE 3400 (Intelligent Physical Systems) for this Fall 2019. Expected worked hours are about 15 hours/week (varying). The position can be for hourly pay ($12/hour), or for course credit. You must have taken ECE 3400 in the past to be considered as TA. 
    The work related to the course includes:

    • Help with organizing the lab, prepare the lab sessions
    • Oversee two lab sessions per week (2-3 TAs per lab session) prior to Fall Break, subject to change
    • Possibility to oversee additional lab sessions after Fall Break (typically 1 TA per additional lab session), subject to change
    • Help with the final project (robot, as you know!) throughout the semester
    • Help with the final competition
    • Possible grading of material
    • Overall help with the course and labs

    There are currently five lab sessions scheduled for the course: Monday and Friday afternoons (1:25 PM – 4:25 PM), and Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (7:30 PM – 10:30 PM). Your lab assignments will be determined when we have our initial all-hands group meeting. 
    I expect to work with reliable, hard-working TAs. As you know, this course is rather heavy and we need to be able to rely on one another on all points.
    Please email Carl Poitras (cbp8) if you are serious and interested!
