Employment in ECE


Faculty Candidates


The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Utah seeks applications to fill multiple tenure-track positions at all levels.  Exceptional candidates in all areas of ECE, including interdisciplinary areas, are invited to apply.  We have particular interest in candidates working in research areas that require expertise in energy/power or computer engineering/embedded systems. Faculty responsibilities include developing and maintaining an internationally recognized research program, effective classroom teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and professional service.

Fueled in part by strong support from the State of Utah, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has experienced significant recent growth. Our graduate program rankings in the past five years have increased at one of the fastest rates of any program in the nation, and we expect our rapid ascent to continue.  The Department currently has 30 tenured and tenure-track faculty, approximately $10M in annual research expenditures and approx. 100 doctoral students. Current ECE faculty have founded or co-founded 15 companies, consistent with the unique entrepreneurial spirit at the University of Utah, which has been consistently ranked as one of the top schools for startup creation.  The Department attracts world-class students and faculty.  Salt Lake City has an outstanding quality of life and natural beauty; seven world-class ski resorts are within a one-hour drive, and Utah has five national parks.
