The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Utah seeks applications to fill one or more 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 power/energy, RF/microwaves/ electromagnetics, or communications/signal processing. 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 29 tenured and tenure-track faculty, ~$10M in annual research expenditures and ~90 doctoral students. Current ECE faculty have founded or co-founded 15 companies, part of the unique entrepreneurial spirit at the University of Utah, which for two years running has spun off more startup companies than any other school in the nation.  The department attracts world-class students and faculty in part because of Salt Lake City’s outstanding quality-of-life and natural beauty. Seven world-class ski resorts are within a one hour drive, and Utah has five national parks.

Applicants should apply online at  Résumés with names and contact information for at least three references, a statement of research, and a teaching statement should be included with the online application. Applications will be reviewed starting December 1, 2012, and will be accepted until the positions are filled. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. by the time of appointment.
