Faculty Search

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Minnesota Twin Cities, within the College of Science and Engineering, invites applications for two faculty positions. The first is in the area of photonics, electronics, or magnetics. We seek an experimentalist working in micro- and nano-fabrication who will make extensive use of the facilities in the Minnesota Nano Center. The second is in computer engineering, with knowledge and expertise in hardware design and algorithms of emerging computing platforms, including AI/ML, quantum, and quantum-inspired computing. 

Successful candidates will have outstanding academic and research records and are expected to establish a vigorous, funded research program, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and be involved in service to the University and the profession. An earned doctorate or equivalent foreign degree in an appropriate discipline is required at the time of appointment. It is anticipated that the appointment will begin Fall 2023.
