Rowan University is a comprehensive state-designated research institution with approximately 16,000 students. Its main campus is located in Glassboro, N.J., 20-miles southeast of Philadelphia, and it has a branch campus and medical school in Camden and a second medical school in nearby Stratford. Rowan is one of two universities in the country to offer M.D. and D.O. medical-degree programs. The School of Osteopathic Medicine has a faculty practice plan that serves approximately 200,000 patients throughout Southern New Jersey. The institution is also home to the South Jersey Technology Park, which fosters the translation of applied research into commercial products and processes. The University boasts seven colleges--William G. Rohrer College of Business, Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering and colleges of Communications and Creative Arts, Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, Performing Arts, and Science and Mathematics. Rowan has been recognized as one of the Top 100 public universities in the nation and is ranked 3rd among public institutions in the North by US News & World Report.
With dramatic increase in undergraduate and graduate enrollment, a new PhD program, and a new building coming online in December 2016, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (www.rowan.edu/ece) at Rowan University is growing. To support this robust growth, we seek energetic and innovative teacher-scholars, committed to excellence in both teaching and research to join our dedicated family of faculty members. Over the next few years, we are planning to add several faculty members to our department, with particular emphasis in computer architecture, embedded systems, control systems, energy and power systems, analog & digital design, high performance & distributed computing, cybersecurity, machine learning & data sciences.
Successful candidate will
· teach core ECE courses at the undergraduate and graduate level,
· develop (and teach) new courses and innovative curriculum components for our program,
· seek and obtain external research funding and enhance department?s research infrastructure,
· conduct high quality research and publish research work in highly regarded conferences and journals,
· mentor and advise undergraduate and graduate students, as well as student groups and clubs, and
· supervise student research and entrepreneurial efforts in the Rowan?s hallmark Engineering Clinic sequence.
Rowan University in general, and College of Engineering in particular, are experiencing tremendous growth. At the institutional level, Rowan is now designated by the State of New Jersey as a Comprehensive Research University. At the college and departmental level, we are experiencing significant increase of interest and enrollment in our programs for which we are currently constructing our second state-of-the-art building. Furthermore, with the new ?Comprehensive Research University? status, we are enhancing our research infrastructure and capabilities (such as a new high performance computing, and virtual reality center), further developing our South Jersey Technology Park (http://www.sjtechpark.org/) for expanded industry collaboration and entrepreneurship activities, provide more funding for graduate research assistants, all supporting our long standing Master?s program as well as our newly established innovative PhD program.
These developments have now set the framework for initiating new multidisciplinary research areas and for complementing existing R&D in smart sensors, embedded systems, smart grid, signal/speech processing, computational intelligence, bioinformatics, imaging & virtual reality, nanotechnology and sustainable design, and bio-engineering/technology.
Candidates must have a PhD degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering (or a closely related area), have excellent communication skills and strong commitment to excellence in teaching, research and student mentoring. Current Ph.D. students who have already established a significant body of work are also encouraged to apply, if they have completed all coursework and proposal exam (all but dissertation defense), and are within one year of graduation.
