  • Tenured/tenure-track Faculty Positions, Electrical and Computer Engineering - Cornell Tech

    New York, NY

    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 while addressing the big challenges of our societies, such as transportation, urban infrastructure, energy, information security, and healthcare. Specific research areas of emphasis include; robotics, cyberphysical systems, computer systems, Internet of things, large-scale data processing, communication, and storage, security/privacy, mobile sensing, 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/17072. We will begin reviewing and interviewing candidates immediately and continue until positions are filled. Applications received by December 15, 2020 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.

    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.
