Open Positions

The UNC Charlotte Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering invites interested applicants to apply electronically for available positions at UNC Charlotte's Applicant Site.

 

Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure-Track) 

The UNC Charlotte Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor positions starting from Spring 2023. Candidates with strong academic records and research interests in all areas of ECE are encouraged to apply with particular interest in the following:

1. Communication networks (Position #004414): Expertise in computer networks, mobile and wireless networks, with special interests in current and emerging topics such as IoT, 5G networks and beyond, machine learning for communications, networking infrastructure for smart cities, software defined networks, and related areas.

2. Semiconductor systems (Position #004453): Expertise in electronic, optoelectronic, power electronic, electromagnetic, nanoscale devices and novel devices. Exceptional candidates in other areas are encouraged to apply.

Candidates should be committed to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, development of sponsored research programs, supervision of student research, student mentoring, and academic services. Priority will be given to candidates having original and promising research as demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications, potential for success in extramural funding, a plan for future research that integrates well with existing department strengths, and the ability to contribute to diversity initiatives. Hires at the rank of an Associate Professor are also expected to have demonstrated success in receiving extramural research funding, supervising/mentoring of graduate students, and teaching. A Ph.D. degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering or equivalent is required by the time of contract. 

The ECE department offers B.S. and M.S. degrees in both Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering, with approximately 650 undergraduate and 175 graduate students; see http://ece.uncc.edu. The ECE Department currently comprises 37 full time faculty members who are actively engaged in research and teaching in the broad areas of computer systems, communications, controls, signal/image processing, electronics devices, and power and energy systems.

Applications must be made electronically at https://jobs.uncc.edu for Position #004414 (communication networks) or Position #004453 (semiconductor devices). Applicants should submit a complete resume/curriculum vitae, a cover letter/letter of intent, a statement of teaching and research experience/goals, and contact information of at least three references. The candidate chosen for this position will be required to provide an official transcript of their highest degree earned.  The candidate chosen for this position will be subject to a criminal background check.  Review of applications will begin December 1, 2022, 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.

 

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.
