Steve W. Chaddick School Chair of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology is seeking nominations and applications for the position of the Steve W. Chaddick School Chair of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The School of ECE is the largest ECE school in the nation: 110 full-time faculty members, 1,419 undergraduates, and 1,137 graduate students with an annual operating budget, including external funding, of approximately $90 million. The School offers two bachelor degrees (electrical engineering, computer engineering), and master's and doctoral degrees in electrical and computer engineering. All ECE degree programs consistently rank in the top six by U.S. News and World Report and regularly draw top notch students both domestic and international. In addition to the
main campus in Atlanta, ECE has students and faculty at the Georgia Tech Lorraine campus in France and has a number of other international educational programs at sites that include China, Germany and Italy.

Owing to the School of ECE’s size and quality, decisions made here reverberate on a national scale. The diverse faculty broadly represents all areas of research and education in ECE including: Bioengineering, Computer Systems and Software, Digital Signal Processing, Electrical Energy, Electromagnetics, Electronic Design and Applications, Microelectronics/Microsystems, Optics and Photonics, Systems and Controls, Telecommunications, and VLSI Systems and Digital Design. Much of the research of the School is conducted through internationally recognized interdisciplinary centers. Additional information may be found at https://www.ece.gatech.edu/research/.

The Steve W. Chaddick School Chair reports to the Dean of the College of Engineering and has overall responsibility for the academic and research programs of ECE, including all administrative, budgetary, and personnel decisions, and external affairs. A candidate for the position must have a doctoral degree and international recognition in his/her specific discipline(s) with a record of excellence in technical, academic and professional achievements. Candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to engineering education, interdisciplinary research, entrepreneurship, diversity, and inclusion. Candidates should have the strategic skills and vision necessary to advance ECE within a rapidly evolving multi-disciplinary and high-technology environment.

Applications and nominations should include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and names and address of five references. Electronic submission of nominations and materials is preferred and should be submitted to: ece-search@coe.gatech.edu. Review of application materials will begin November 15, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. The Georgia Institute of Technology is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
