University of Southern California: Faculty Position in Electrical Engineering
Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering
The Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering (ee.usc.edu) of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering (viterbi.usc.edu) seeks outstanding faculty candidates for appointment as tenure-track assistant professor, tenured associate professor, or tenured professor. Specific areas of interest include but may not be limited to:
- Communications and/or signal processing theory and methods relevant to distributed and collaborative information processing, data driven and adaptive learning methodologies, “big data,” distributed storage, cloud computing, sparse representations, and networking.
- Computer architecture, networks, VLSI and CAD, with emphasis on exascale, heterogeneous and accelerated computing, mission-critical systems, new domains (e.g. smart grid, cyber security, computation-driven science); algorithms and protocols for future wireless networks, interface of social and communication networks; extreme-scale, post-CMOS, bio-inspired, and ubiquitous computing, resilience, 3D VLSI, system-level design and verification, and new applications (e.g., biomimetic systems).
- Electronic/quantum devices/circuits/systems based on emerging micro and nano science and technologies that will provide the basis for innovations as we transition to a post Moore’s law era, and/or will be revolutionary for energy harvesting, micro power sources, ubiquitous health care, wireless communications, environmental monitoring, homeland and border security, etc.
- Energy/power devices and systems, with possible application to smart grid, energy storage and generation, advanced battery science, low-cost monitoring of the health of electric power grids, advanced high-power electronics, efficient power generation and transmission, etc.
Outstanding senior applicants in the energy/power area who have demonstrated academic excellence and leadership may also be considered for the Lloyd Hunt Endowed Chair.
Faculty members are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, supervise undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers, and develop a funded research program. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or the equivalent in electrical engineering or a related field and a strong research and publication record. Applications must include a letter clearly indicating area(s) of specialization, a detailed curriculum vitae, a concise statement of current and future research directions, and contact information for at least four professional references. This material should be submitted electronically at http://ee.usc.edu/about/open_positions.htm. Early submission is strongly advised and encouraged. The application review process will commence January 2, 2013.
The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is among the top tier engineering schools in the world. It counts 174 full-time, tenure-track faculty members, and is home to the Information Sciences Institute (ISI), two National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers, the Department of Homeland Security’s first University Center of Excellence (CREATE), and an Energy Frontiers Research Center (EFRC) supported by the Department of Energy. USC Viterbi faculty conduct research in leading-edge technologies with annual research expenditures exceeding $180 million.
We encourage applications from transformative scholars — distinguished individuals whose accomplishments are transforming the field; and interdisciplinary scholars — outstanding individuals engaged in research aligned with the interests of the department but whose research also cuts across other departments in the School and University.
USC values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups are encouraged to apply.
