Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, New York University

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering invites applications for senior and junior tenured and tenure-track positions, to start September 2019. NYU is one of the top private universities in the US. The Tandon School of Engineering has been on a remarkable upward trajectory over the past several years. Formerly known as Brooklyn Poly and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, Tandon has the distinction of being one of the oldest engineering schools in the United States.

We have many immediate tenured/tenure-track faculty openings. We invite applications in all areas of circuits, devices, computing systems, and machine learning, at all levels, with particular emphasis on terahertz or quantum devices and circuits, next-generation computing architectures, and/or foundational theory for machine learning. We will appoint faculty in the area of machine learning to joint positions with the NYU Tandon Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE). As part of our team, you will work closely with faculty colleagues, students, and industrial affiliate sponsors of several research centers including NYU WIRELESS, the NY State Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications (CATT), and the NYU Center for Cybersecurity (CCS).

Our mission is to excel in research, innovation, and education. The ECE department is at the epicenter of an amazing high-tech start-up culture where student and faculty innovation and entrepreneurship activities are supported and nurtured, both in New York City and across NYU’s global network. We aim to inspire and educate engineers for the 21st century. We are committed to quality, integrity, and respect for each other. We take pride in our high number of women students and students who are the first in their family to go to college. We seek faculty who have a real passion for a culturally diverse environment. Tandon belongs to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC), which assists with dual-career searches.
