ECE Invites Applicants for Two Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the School of Engineering at the University of New Mexico invites applications to fill two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to begin in Fall 2019.

Areas of interest include: Computer Engineering (embedded and real-time systems, hardware and cyber-physical  security, Internet of Things, data science, quantum computing, machine learning, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, FPGAs, VLSI); and Electrical Engineering (microelectronics, power systems, smart grid, high power & RF electronics, photonics, optical communications, space and satellite systems, cyber-physical systems, quantum devices and systems, neuromorphic hardware).

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, the ability to engage in interdisciplinary research work with other departments (e.g. Physics, CS), 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 req6407.

Albuquerque is a beautiful and historic city with terrific weather, rich cultural life, and lots of outdoor activities. Cradled in the Rio Grande Valley beneath the Sandia Mountains, Albuquerque is by far the largest city in the state, acting as the media, educational, and economic center of New Mexico, as well as the home of the state's only major airport, making it a common entry point into New Mexico.
