Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Tenure-Track (updated 11/10/16) The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position with a focus on digital and mixed-signal integrated systems and circuits, with applications in security, data science, biomedical, and other emerging areas. Extraordinary candidates from other areas of Computer Engineering are also welcome. The department has a vibrant research program in Computer Engineering, along with programs in data science, nanoengineering, neuroengineering, and wireless & mobile systems with great national and international visibility. Our faculty are known for their strong collaborative relationships within the department, across disciplines at Rice and internationally. A Ph.D. is required, or the Ph.D. requirements must be fulfilled by November 1 of the year employment commences.
The Computer Vision and Robotics Research (CVRR) Laboratory at the University of California, San Diego offers an unique and stimulating environment to graduate students, faculty members, and visiting scholars/collaborators to pursue a wide spectrum of research studies in the Sensor-Based Intelligent Systems area. The major thrust of our research is on developing a clear understanding of the computational and engineering related issues underlying the perception, planning, and control mechanisms for completely autonomous or semi-autonomous operation of integrated systems. The core group of researchers in the laboratory includes over a dozen graduate students, four research faculty members, and three adjunct faculty members. The academic program of the laboratory is primarily associated with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Ties with Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Bioengineering, Structural Engineering, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, San Diego Supercomputing Center, and Salk Institute (Neuroscience) exists for interdisciplinary projects.
Since February, five working groups have been generating ideas about the form and content of the new MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing. That includes a Working Group on Faculty Appointments. Its co-chairs are Eran Ben-Joseph, head of the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, and William Freeman, the Thomas and Gerd Perkins Professor of Electrical Engineering. MIT News talked to Ben-Joseph and Freeman about the group's progress and ideas at this point. Q: What are the major issues your working group was formed to address?
Late one night, Richard J. Radke was at his desk, putting together applications for faculty jobs. Nearing the completion of his Ph.D., he was hoping to embark on an academic career. A senior professor he knew well took Radke aside and said, "I hate to tell you this, but it's going to be brutal," he recalls. Radke, now an assistant professor in electrical, computer, and systems engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in Troy, N.Y., admits that his professor was right. Even once he'd landed a job, for the first few years he was constantly busy and stressed out as he learned the ropes and started worrying about tenure.
