Description

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is accepting applications for faculty positions. Our primary focus is on tenure-track assistant professors, however distinguished senior-level applicants will also be considered. The Department seeks candidates with a PhD in a related discipline. Salary is commensurate with education and experience.

The Department is seeking outstanding candidates with the potential for exceptional, original, and innovative research, excellence in teaching, and also a clear commitment to enhancing the diversity of the faculty, graduate student population, and of the majors in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Experience in mentoring women and minorities in STEM fields is desired. The Department is interested in all areas of research traditionally associated with Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as areas involving extra-departmental collaborations with the Institute for the Risk Sciences and the School of Medicine.

However, we are particularly interested in attracting applicants in the following broadly defined areas:
• Computer Architecture and Experimental Embedded Systems, especially with a focus on Machine Learning, Security or Privacy.
• Foundations of Autonomy, including related areas such as Control, Optimization, Perception, and Cyber-Physical Systems.
• Composite Devices and Materials, including Material Growth and Fabrication Techniques leading to Novel Electronic, Magnetic, Photonic, and/or Quantum Devices, Systems, and Architectures
• Computational Medicine, particularly Computational Genomics, Clinical Machine Learning, Computer Vision applied to Medical Imaging and other areas which span Engineering and Medicine

To help with the evaluation, we would like all candidates to indicate interest/expertise in up to three (3) topical areas specified. In addition, please indicate your area(s) of interest/expertise in your cover letter.
• Embedded Systems and Computer Engineering
• Analog, Digital, and Mixed-Signal Circuits
• Cyber-Physical Systems and Networked Control with Applications
• Image Processing and Applications Data Science
• Electromagnetics and Microwave/Millimeter-Wave Devices and Systems
• Nanoelectronics, MEMS, and Devices
• Photonics: Materials, Devices, Signal Processing, and Imaging
• Communications and Networking
• Control and Signal Processing
• Information/Computation/Optimization Theory
• Quantum Engineering, Information, Sensing, and Computation
• Computational Medicine

3 to 6 references required (contact information only).

Applications will be reviewed starting November 1, 2019 until the positions are filled, and therefore for full consideration, please apply before this date.
