Faculty Positions in Electrical and Computer Engineering
The Ohio State University invites applications from outstanding candidates for multiple tenure track faculty positions in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
All areas and ranks in electrical and computer engineering will be considered. We are especially interested in the areas of (i) control systems or robotics with an emphasis on intelligent vehicle and transportation systems, (ii) biomedical applications including cancer detection and imaging, tumor cell biology, or the genomics of cancer, (iii) electronic materials and devices, emphasizing low energy electronics or wide bandgap semiconductors, (iv) neural electronics, and (v) senior candidates in electromagnetics, microwave theory, RF systems, or remote sensing; all positions may involve joint appointments with other engineering departments. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree and outstanding academic credentials. Successful candidates will be expected to develop a vigorous externally-funded research program, show excellence and leadership in academic and scholarly activities, and demonstrate outstanding teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Applicants are requested to send (1) a letter of application, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) statement of research plans in the context of prior research accomplishments, (4) brief statement of teaching philosophy, and (5) names of four references (name, address and e-mail address) to Professor John L. Volakis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Several of these positions are partially funded by Ohio State's Discovery Themes Initiative. This is a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas that build on the university’s culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact. The Ohio State University is committed to establishing a culturally and intellectually diverse environment, encouraging all members of our learning community to reach their full potential. We are responsive to dual-career families and strongly promote work-life balance to support our community members through a suite of institutionalized policies. We are an NSF Advance Institution and a member of the Ohio/Western Pennsylvania/West Virginia Higher Education Recruitment Consortium.
Faculty Positions in Engineering and Cancer Research
The College of Engineering at The Ohio State University in partnership with the NCI-designated Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) is currently recruiting for multiple faculty positions in the area of Engineering and Cancer Research. These positions are part of a cluster hiring plan in the College of Engineering that seeks to hire faculty members over the next two years with primary appointments in appropriate engineering departments (e.g., Biomedical, Electrical, Mechanical and Chemical/Biomolecular). The goal of hiring a cluster of faculty is to create a synergistic group of faculty members who use engineering technologies to develop cancer therapeutics based on targeted detection, imaging and drug delivery. All appointments will be for tenure-track or tenured faculty positions at a level commensurate with the qualifications of the candidate and we seek a mix of senior and junior faculty in these cluster hires. Although the precise area of research and appointment to a specific department is flexible, the initial vision for these four positions is included in the complete position description.
General applications for tenure track faculty
The Ohio State University invites applications from outstanding candidates for tenure track faculty positions in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. For the tenure-track positions, all areas and ranks in electrical and computer engineering will be considered.
The university is especially interested in the areas of (i) electronics and VLSI and (ii) biomedical applications, including cancer detection and imaging.

Graduate Research Associate Positions with Prof. Guoqiang Li's Group
The Biomedical and Visual Optics Laboratory led by Prof. Guoqiang Li at Ohio State University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering invites applicants for three Graduate Research Associate positions to work on exciting projects funded by the federal government. The main goal of the lab is to develop biomedical devices based on engineering principles (Dr. Li also has an appointment with Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science). The laboratory is well-equipped with the state-of-the-art optical and optoelectronic devices and systems and provides an active research environment. (posted 12/6/2012)
The successful candidate will work in one or more of the following directions:
(1) Electro-optic (liquid crystal) devices for vision care, biomedical imaging and sensing; optical materials;
(2) Biomedical optics: imaging and sensing (confocal imaging, optical coherence tomography (OCT), polarimeter, photoacoustic imaging, second harmonic generation imaging, dynamic holography) for diagnosis of eye or general medical diseases; Eye tracker based on image processing and the controller based on FPGA;
(3) Adaptive optics for correction of the aberrations of the eye and imaging systems.
Successful candidates are expected to conduct the research, publish results, and provide other technical supports to the lab. The candidates may have a major in optical/electrical/biomedical/chemical/material/computer engineering, or physics. Experimental background in optics, ideally with expertise in OCT and photoacoustic imaging, adaptive optics, polarization-sensitive imaging or a related area is helpful. Strong communication skills are highly attractive. Experience with optical system design (e.g. using Zemax) and construction, system control (C++ and LabView programming), digital image processing, and Fourier optics are also desirable. Experience in the clean room is a plus. The candidates are expected to have high motivation. The candidates would have excellent opportunities to interact with researchers in engineering and medical science for an interdisciplinary research training.
The positions are available now. Both US citizen and non-citizen are welcome to apply.
Interested applicants should send a CV to Prof. Guoqiang Li via email (email@example.com), including education and research background, research interests, publications, and contact information for three references (upon request).
