Tenure-track Faculty Positions

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago invites applications for one or more tenure-track faculty positions. Priority will be given to candidates with expertise in image and signal processing, especially related to medical imaging, and to exceptional candidates in the areas of networks and communications, energy and power, electronics and electromagnetics, and VLSI and computer systems. We anticipate that appointments will be at the Assistant Professor level, but all ranks will be considered.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop and sustain an internationally recognized research program, be an effective classroom teacher at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and engage in service to the university and the profession. The experience and technical background needed to develop an externally funded research program are essential. Candidates are expected to obtain significant research funding that supports graduate students and to develop a record of published research. Candidates must hold a doctorate in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or a related field.

The ECE department at IIT offers ABET accredited BS degrees in electrical and in computer engineering as well as graduate degrees in electrical and computer engineering. The Department's 25 faculty conduct research in power and energy, image and signal processing, networks and communications, VLSI and computer systems, and electronics and electromagnetics, with research expenditures in the most recent fiscal year exceeding $8.3M.
