Multiple Assistant or Associate Professor Faculty Positions in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine seeks applicants for multiple tenure-track faculty positions whose research interests fall into one of the following three areas (1) Intersection of Life Sciences and Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (2) Big Data or (3) Security for Engineered Systems. Candidates will be considered at either the assistant or associate professor level, depending on level of experience and qualifications.

1) Intersection of Life Sciences and Electrical Engineering & Computer Science

Interfaces with life could be at the molecular, cellular, organ or whole organism level. Areas include, but are not limited to, convergent science and technology in: novel microscopy and imaging techniques, electrical and photonic sensing, wireless and implantable monitoring, exploitation of new spectral regions (such as far-infrared, terahertz), monitoring and stimulation of neural systems, and any other technical areas that utilize the disciplines of EECS to address human health.

2)  Big Data

 Areas include, but are not limited to, theoretical foundations and algorithms in machine learning, data mining, signal processing, big data analytic systems for high-performance and scalable computing, software/hardware architectures and networked systems. Applications include, but are not limited to, Internet-of-Things, manufacturing, smart cities and other domains.

 3)  Security for Engineered Systems

Areas include, but are not limited to, theoretical foundations at the intersection of hardware and software system security; specification, design, validation and verification of security for cyberphysical systems within the critical infrastructure, e.g., power grid system, transportation, manufacturing, medical devices, etc.; formal methods for securing systems; intrusion detection and defense; supply-chain security, e.g., semiconductor hardware; system security for IoT systems.

Applicants are expected to have a doctoral degree in electrical engineering, computer science or related field from an accredited university. Successful candidates will be innovative leaders who can develop a vigorous externally funded research program, maintain a strong publication record, advise students and provide outstanding teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Applications should specify one of the three categories above, include a cover letter, a statement of research and teaching interests, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, up to three key publications, a statement describing commitment to diversity, and the names and contact information of three to five references. References will not be contacted until later stages of consideration, in consultation with the candidate.

Applications should be submitted electronically. Instructions may be found at . Screening will begin immediately upon receipt of a completed application. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, although maximum consideration will be given to applications received by February 15, 2018.
