University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign – Positions in Computing
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE ILLINOIS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for faculty positions at all areas and levels in computing, broadly defined, with particular emphasis on Embedded Computing Systems and the Internet of Things; Data-Centric Computing Systems and Storage; Networked and Distributed Computing Systems; AI/Autonomous Systems; Robotics; Machine Vision; Quantum Computing. Applications are encouraged from candidates whose research programs specialize in core as well as interdisciplinary areas of electrical and computer engineering. Ideal candidates include those who demonstrate evidence of a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service endeavors.
From the transistor and the first computer implementation based on von Neumann’s architecture to the Blue Waters petascale computer (the fastest computer on any university campus), ECE ILLINOIS has always been at the forefront of computing research and innovation. ECE ILLINOIS is in a period of intense demand and growth, serving over 3000 students and averaging 7 new tenure-track faculty hires per year in recent years. It is housed in its new 235,000 sq. ft. net-zero energy design building, which is a major campus addition with maximum space and minimal carbon footprint.
Qualified senior candidates may also be considered for tenured full Professor positions as part of the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative (graingerinitiative.engineering.illinois.edu), which is backed by a $100-million gift from the Grainger Foundation.
