Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions. Applicants should have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent. The School seeks individuals with outstanding potential for research achievement and a strong aptitude and interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching. 

Exceptional candidates will be considered for all technical areas and at all rank levels.  Of particular interest are candidates at the Assistant Professor level in the following areas:

Cybersecurity with particular interest in hardware design for security, operating systems security, supply chain protection, applications of machine learning/AI to cybersecurity, programming language security, and applied cryptography.

Machine learning with a focus on both mathematical and algorithmic foundations. The ideal applicant would be eager to seek interdisciplinary collaborations within the centers and institutes focused on machine learning and its applications.

Computational imaging including computational photography, microscopy and multiscale imaging, super-resolution imaging, big images, real-time image/video processing, and bioimaging for sensing and diagnosis.

Sensors and edge computing with a focus on software/hardware co-design for embedded, Internet-of-Things (IoT), and cyber-physical systems; programming languages and runtimes for constrained and/or mobile environments; and innovative circuit/architecture for sensors and edge devices, including non-Von-Neumann and neuro-inspired designs.

Integrated circuits and systems design focusing on energy-efficient mixed-signal integrated circuits and systems and their applications in high-speed, high-fidelity, high-robustness, or resource-constraint platforms.

Leading edge.  Candidates whose research does not naturally fall into one of the five categories above, but are in emerging fields with the potential for high impact.

Julian T. Hightower Chair in Systems and Control at Georgia Tech

The Georgia Institute of Technology invites applicants for the endowed position of the Julian T. Hightower Chair in Systems and Control in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Previous holders of the Julian T. Hightower Chair include E. Kamen, A. Tannenbaum, J. Shamma, and M. Egerstedt.

Candidates are expected to have a distinguished record of research in autonomy, robotics, and control theory that will add to the College's existing strengths in these areas. In particular, the successful candidate is expected to be a leading member of the Decision and Controls Laboratory (DCL) within the College. The DCL comprises over 20 faculty members and organizes a number of events throughout the year. In addition, the appointed individual will have the opportunity to join the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) at Georgia Tech. IRIM is one of the world's leading academic robotics institutes comprised of over 50 faculty members.

The successful candidate is expected to establish a high-visibility/high-impact research program funded by industry and government, help attract outstanding students and faculty to the program, and serve as a mentor to other faculty. The academic salary for the Chair holder will be paid from Institute funds, enabling funds generated by the endowment to be used by the Chair holder for the purposes of research support and program development. Salary will be fully competitive.

Interested candidates should submit an application letter, curriculum vita, research and teaching statements and names of three references electronically at: http://hightowerchair.ece.gatech.edu.  Review of applications will begin immediately. To receive the most serious consideration, interested applicants should submit their materials before January 17, 2019.
