Faculty Positions in Electrical and Computer Engineering

 

The Ohio State University invites applications for multiple tenure track faculty positions in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. All areas and ranks will be con­sidered. We are especially interested in

(i) robotics, including human/robot interactions,

(ii) mobile health sensing and health analytics,  

(iii) both senior and junior faculty in cybersecurity (including hardware-enabled cybersecurity and mobility),

(iv) electric machines and variable frequency drive systems, and

(v) Director of the ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) and Professor of Electrical Engineering.

All positions may involve joint appointments with other engineering departments. Applicants must have a Ph.D. and outstanding academic credentials. Successful candidates are 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.

Some of these positions are partially funded by Ohio State's Discovery Themes Initiative, 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.

Applicants are requested to send the following to Professor John L. Volakis at eng-ece-search@osu.edu, in this numbered order:

1) letter of applica­tion,

(2) curriculum vitae,

(3) statement of research plans,

(4) brief statement of teaching philosophy,

(5) name, address, and email of four references

 

The Ohio State University is an ADVANCE University. Women and under-represented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

 

 

(i) Robotics, including human/robot interactions

A successful candidate should have substantial research experience in the general field of robotics for both fundamentals and applications. Interested areas include, but are not limited to: intelligent robots, human/robot interactions, mobile robots, industrial robots for modern manufacturing automation, and service robots for civilian and defense applications.

(ii) Mobile Health and Health Analysis

A successful faculty candidate is expected to have research experience in one of these fields: mobile health, sensing and monitoring for health, bio
imaging, body networks, health analytics, bio sensor design. Areas of interest include, but not limited to, sensing, imaging, signal processing, image processing, and data analytics.

(iii) Mobility and Cybersecurity

A successful faculty candidate is expected to have research experience in one of these general fields: cybersecurity, mobile computing, and computer architecture. Interested areas include, but not limited to: cybersecurity (including hardware-enable security), mobile computing, computer architecture and systems, cloud computing, Internet of things, data center management, embedded and real-time systems, and energy-efficient computer designs.

(iv) Electric Machines and Variable Frequency Drive Systems

Candidates are invited for a faculty position in the area of electric machines and variable speed systems.  Candidates are expected to have research experience in the general field of electric machines and variable speed systems for both fundamentals and applications. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in high power density, high efficiency and intelligent control of electric machines, and their applications to electrified transportation such as land-, air-, and sea-vehicles, and renewable energy systems.

(v) Director of the ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) and Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering

The Ohio State University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering invites applications for the position of Director of the ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. ESL is a nationally recognized center for the study of wireless and optical devices and systems. It is located in two connected buildings with over 46,000 sq. ft. of office and lab space, and over $11 million of annual research funding. The center is comprised of 17 faculty members, 12 permanent researchers, 7 postdoctoral researchers, 96 graduate students, and 6 support staff. The researchers at ESL have projects that span the EM spectrum from DC to gamma rays in applications that range from national defense to NASA to health care to consumer electronics. ESL has a strong working relationship with Fortune 50 companies down to early stage startups. It also has significant funding from domestic and international government agencies. The candidate is expected to have a prominent research record in an area that complements and not necessarily overlaps the existing strengths at ESL. A more detailed description of the research strengths at ESL can be found at (http://electroscience.osu.edu/). In addition to the regular duties of a professor, the candidate will provide direction for ESL, lead the development of large research programs, and be the representative for ESL to the university, state and federal government, and industry. 

Applicants are requested to send the following to Professor Robert Lee (Chair of ESL Director Search) at eng-ece-search@osu.edu:

(1) a letter of application,

(2) curriculum vitae,

(3) statement of vision and direction for ESL, and

(4) names of four references (name, address and email address)
