Academic Advisor II

The UNC Charlotte Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) invites applications for the Academic Advisor II position (position #001924).

The academic advisor is primarily an implementer of a developmental advising model that involves a tailored series of interactions and communications using advising tools and systems designed to address the specific needs of the students served by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Advising Center. This tailored, developmental approach acknowledges that individual student profiles and those of student cohorts may differ not only at the onset of the student academic experience, but throughout their academic career. The advisor must have the experience, education, and background necessary to serve the educational function of an advisor, however he or she is doing so in a context developed by the Center and in collaboration with more experienced colleagues and the Director. Specific functional areas include:
  • Academic advising of senior undergraduate students.
  • Primary point of contact and advisor for graduate students, including degree requirements, plans of study, qualifying examinations, graduate forms, registration support.
  • Targeted advising for student success.
  • Communication with prospective graduate students, recruitment, and outreach, including promoting interest in ECE’s Early Entry graduate programs.
  • Graduate student financial support processing and tuition awards (GASP).
  • Graduate program assessment data collection and SACS accreditation support.
  • Commitment to student success and the ability to listen and analyze academic needs.
  • Reporting on academic progression and graduation-oriented advising.
  • Collaboration with faculty in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department to provide additional information/services/programming to majors.
  • Thorough working knowledge of campus support services and referral processes.
  • Other duties as assigned.

Education: A master’s degree in academic advising, student services, higher education, engineering, or a related field is required. 

Experience: Two years of related experience involving student academic advising in a higher education setting.

The candidate must also be attentive to detail, possess strong organizational skills with the ability to prioritize while multi-tasking and manage tasks in an efficient and timely manner. Excellent communication and interpersonal problem-solving skills are a must. Ability to interact effectively with advisees, staff, and faculty required. A viable candidate must comprehend and abide by federal and university student confidentiality requirements. Proficient use of computers (Microsoft Access, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Google Drive) is necessary.  A working knowledge of BANNER, Connect, and DegreeWorks or other academic advising systems is a plus.

PostDoctoral Fellow

Dr. Hamed Tabkhi invites applicants for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in the Transformative Computer Systems and Architecture Research Lab within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UNC Charlotte.  The position will directly contribute to two major NSF-funded projects, as part of NSF Smart Connected Communities, and Cyber-Physical Systems programs. The postdoctoral researcher will directly contribute to the strategic vision of TeCSAR lab which is to bring the recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) to address community challenges. While working directly with PI Hamed Tabkhi, she/he will get direct assistance from other Co-PIs and community partners to develop the scientific and technical skills necessary to carry out this research program. This includes contributing to algorithm development, computer system design, and methods for bringing back the processed information to community stakeholders

A Postdoctoral Fellow (""postdoc"") is a professional apprenticeship designed to provide recent Ph.D. recipients with an opportunity to develop further the research skills acquired in their doctoral programs or to learn new research techniques, in preparation for an academic or research career. In the process of further developing their own research skills, it is expected that Postdoctoral Fellows will also play a significant role in the performance of research at the University and augment the role of graduate faculty in providing research instruction to graduate students. A Postdoctoral Fellow works under the supervision of a regular faculty member, who serves as a mentor to the Fellow, and it is expected that the faculty mentor will impart the realities, and variety, of scientific careers, and will encourage experiences outside the laboratory to broaden postdocs’ aspirations. Within the confines of the particular research focus assigned by that faculty member, the Postdoctoral Fellow functions with a considerable degree of independence and has the freedom (and is expected) to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of appointment. Thus, the role of Postdoctoral Fellows is clearly differentiated from full-time technical employees.

Education: The Postdoctoral appointee must have recently (within the last eight years) been awarded a Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g. Sc.D., M.D.)

Applications must be made electronically at  https://jobs.charlotte.edu for Position #POST40 (Post-Doctoral Fellow). Applicants should submit a complete resume/curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and contact information of at least three references. Review of applications will begin immediately, and the position will remain open until filled. Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Candidates having demonstrated ability to contribute to diversity initiatives are encouraged to apply. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is an EOE/AA employer and an ADVANCE Institution.
