The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the general area of computer engineering. While the focus of this search is at the assistant professor level, exceptional candidates at all levels will be considered. The department is seeking candidates in all areas of embedded computer systems, digital systems design, intelligent systems, and cyber security to enhance our capabilities and strengthen our research potential. Areas of particular interest include autonomous and cyber-physical systems, networking, and computational intelligence, which reflect existing research strengths of the department and directly relate to university-wide strategic initiatives in the interdisciplinary signature areas of Smart Living.
The ECE department has 35 faculty members, approximately 460 undergraduate and 285 graduate students, and had research expenditures of approximately $4.8M in the past fiscal year. More information about the department and campus can be found at http://ece.mst.edu.
A Ph.D. degree in electrical and/or computer engineering or computer science, or equivalent and a record of scholarly research and professional activities are required. Applicants must demonstrate the ability to initiate research programs, show commitment to high-quality teaching, and exhibit potential for outstanding achievements in research, teaching and service.
Missouri S&T is one of the nation's leading research universities. Located about 100 miles west of St. Louis in the community of Rolla, Missouri S&T is an accessible, safe and friendly campus surrounded by Ozarks scenery. Missouri S&T offers degrees in engineering, the sciences, liberal arts, humanities and business, with master's and Ph.D. programs available in many of the science and engineering programs and master's degrees in biological sciences, business administration and technical communication. With nearly 9,000 students enrolled online and on campus, Missouri S&T is big enough to accommodate a diverse population but small enough for individuals to stand out.
