    The SCHOOL OF ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING at CORNELL UNIVERSITY, Ithaca, New York, invites applications for multiple tenure-track Faculty positions in all areas of electrical and computer engineering with special interest in materials and devices, plasma physics, digital VLSI, and computer architecture. See our website, https://www.ece.cornell.edu/ece, for additional information on our programs. 

    Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field by the time their Faculty appointment would begin, must have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research, and must show promise for excellence in teaching. Although we anticipate filling positions at the assistant professor level, applications at all levels will be considered; salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. 

    Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV), brief statements describing research, teaching, and service, a statement of diversity, equity, and inclusion, three publications, and arrange to have at least three reference letters submitted. Applications must be submitted on-line at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22656. Review of applications will begin immediately. Applications received by December 2, 2022, will receive full consideration. 

    The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity of the academic community and to creating a climate that attracts students of all races, genders and nationalities. We strongly encourage candidates from groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering to apply. Cornell University actively seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual career searches.

    As part of the university's comprehensive vaccination program, all Cornell employees are required to have and provide proof of an FDA-or WHO-authorized or approved COVID-19 primary vaccination or have obtained a university-approved disability/medical or religious exemption, regardless of their role and work location.

    New hires are required to provide documentation showing primary vaccination status (that is, completion of two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one shot of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) before their first day of work. If a new hire's vaccination is not complete or information is not received by their start date, the first day of work will be delayed. It is possible in some cases that an offer of employment may be withdrawn.

    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. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations. Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work.

    New York, New York
    Posted:

    The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Cornell University invites applications for tenure-track or tenured faculty positions at Cornell Tech* - Cornell University's campus in New York City.

    Apply online: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22894

    We welcome exceptional applicants in all research areas of ECE. We are particularly interested in applicants from areas broadly relevant to the current research priorities at the Cornell Tech campus while addressing grand challenges in transportation, urban infrastructure, energy, information security, and healthcare. Specific research areas of emphasis include; communications, robotics, control, and cyberphysical systems.

    Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field by the start date of their faculty appointment. 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. 

    We will begin reviewing and interviewing candidates immediately and continue until positions are filled. Applications received by December 15, 2022 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.

    * Cornell Tech is a graduate campus of Cornell University located on Roosevelt Island in New York City. Cornell Tech's academic environment encourages tight integration across disciplines in technology, business, law, and design, couples fundamental research with practice, and supports societal and commercial ventures alongside research and education. In addition to world-class academic work, a distinguishing characteristic of our research is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct societal and commercial impact of our research. Hubs in Health Tech, Urban Tech, and Public Interest Tech exemplify this approach, bringing together researchers, practitioners and communities to collaborate.
