Description

Building upon its commitment to foster an inclusive environment and promote the success of underrepresented students, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science invites applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty position.

Applicants for the position must have a demonstrated record of excellence or show exceptional promise for high-quality research, teaching, and professional development, as commensurate with rank. In addition, applicants must have a demonstrated record of interest in and commitment to the mentorship of students from underrepresented and underserved populations. The successful candidate will be expected to advance their active mentoring activities and participate in programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for our diverse student body (such as our Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity, our Women in Engineering program, the National Society for Black Engineers, Society of Latino Engineers and Scientists, and American Indian Science and Engineering Society). Overall teaching and service expectations will not exceed those of other faculty positions. Applications for appointments at all levels will be considered (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor).

Applicants must have an earned PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering or a related field. The Department is interested in all areas of research traditionally associated with Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as emerging cross-disciplinary areas. Applicants must exhibit promise in developing and maintaining an extramurally supported research program, publishing and disseminating research findings, and serving as leaders at the forefront of their fields.
