Stanford University: Assistant or Untenured Associate Professor in Electrical Engineering

Faculty Position

The Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University (ee.stanford.edu) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) in the broadly defined field of electrical and computer engineering. The department is especially interested in candidates in robotics, autonomous systems, embedded systems, control, optimization, and machine learning. Priority, however, will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any specific area of specialization.

Applicants should have an earned Ph.D., evidence of the ability to pursue an independent program of research, a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching, and the ability to initiate and conduct research across disciplines. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels and to build and lead a team of graduate students in Ph.D. research.

Applications should include a brief research and teaching plan, a detailed resume including a publications list, and the names and email addresses of at least five references.

Candidates should apply online at ee.stanford.edu/job-openings. The review of applications will begin on December 15, 2017, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit complete applications by that date for full consideration; however, applications will continue to be accepted through January 15, 2018.

Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
