Tenure-track Faculty Positions in Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the School of Engineering at the University of New Mexico invites applicants to fill tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to begin in Fall 2020. Our focus areas, contingent upon funding, are:

  • Applied electromagnetics with emphases in pulsed power, high power RF, high energy density plasmas, novel computational techniques for multiscale electromagnetics modeling, RF circuits/systems, antennas, and wireless communications (physical layer).
  • Quantum computing algorithms and architecture, and quantum enhanced systems, sensing and networks.
  • Security including smart grid security, securing critical infrastructure, binary host and communication analysis, the current state of malware defenses, and industrial control system security.
  • Autonomy with emphasis on integration of learning and control, cyber-physical systems with learning-enabled components, formal assurances, and intelligent decision making.
  • Computer engineering with emphasis on data sciences and machine learning, high-performance computing architectures, and processing large datasets.

The department has state-of-the-art facilities, and its proximity facilitates collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Air Force Research Laboratory. The research expenditures of ECE and associated research centers are over $30 million/year.

The minimum requirement is a doctorate by the time of appointment in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or closely related fields.

The preferred qualifications are a solid publication record, the potential for excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, the potential to develop an externally funded research program, and a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and student success, as well as working with broadly diverse communities.

All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply, including women, minorities and those from other underrepresented groups. Candidates should apply electronically at https://hr.unm.edu/unmjobs, requisition number req10644.

Please submit an application letter indicating your area of interest, statements of research and teaching, a commitment to diversity statement, CV, and the contact information of three references. Applicants who are appointed to a UNM continuing faculty position are required to provide official certification of successful completion of all degree requirements before their initial employment with UNM.

For full consideration, applications should be submitted before December 1st, 2019.
