Junior Faculty Positions
We invite applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) in the broadly-defined field of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The department is especially interested in candidates who work in and across the areas of signal processing, control, and embedded systems and whose research addresses major societal challenges. Priority, however, will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any specific area of specialization.
Applicants should have an earned PhD, evidence of the ability to pursue an independent program of research, a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching, and the ability to initiate and conduct research across disciplines. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels and to build and lead a team of graduate students in PhD research.
Applications should include a brief research and teaching plan, a detailed resume including a publications list, and the names and email addresses of at least five references.
Candidates should apply using the department's Online Application System.
Applications will be accepted through December 18, 2013.

Nano- and Quantum Science and Engineering Postdoctoral Fellowships
Stanford University invites applications for the 2014 Nano- and Quantum Science and Engineering Postdoctoral Fellowships. We seek candidates with research interests at the interface between engineering and physical sciences, in particular in the area of nano- and quantum science and engineering. We are especially looking for candidates who will build a clear bridge between physical sciences and engineering applications.
Candidates are encouraged to contact faculty members from the participating departments (Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Materials Science, and Physics) to discuss possible research areas prior to submitting an application. The initial appointment includes 2 years of support with an annual salary of approximately $60,000 and benefits.
Applications and supporting credentials must be submitted through Academic Jobs Online.
Candidates should upload their curriculum vitae, publication list, two-page research statement, and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted online. For queries, please email Teresa Nguyen. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled, but candidates whose applications and supporting materials including letters are all uploaded by December 31, 2013, will be fully considered.
Appointments are expected to begin on or around Summer/Autumn 2014. It is expected that at least two fellowships will be awarded.
For consideration, candidates must have completed a Ph.D. degree by September 1, 2014. The fellowship is open to U.S. citizens or international candidates. Candidates from groups that are under-represented in their disciplines, including women, ethnic minorities, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
