The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (http://www.enqineering.pitt.edu/ ECE/) at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for three tenure-stream faculty positions at all ranks in the area of computer engineering effective September 1, 2017. Candidates should show strong potential to become leaders or have demonstrated track records in their fields and be able to synergize with current strengths of the department and the Swanson School of Engineering (SSOE) (http://www.engineering.pitt.edu/). Successful candidates must also be committed to high-quality education for a diverse student body at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

This targeted hiring in computer engineering is part of a broader initiative and investment that recognizes the growth of our academic programs in computer engineering by more than 50% in the last five years and synergy with the recently announced school of computing. The ECE Department boasts internationally recognized programs and award-winning faculty in the areas of (1) Computer Engineering, (2) Biomedical Systems and Signal Processing, (3) Energy and Electric Power Systems and Technologies, and (4) Nano/Micro-Electronics & Photonics. The ECE Department is elso home to several research centers including the well-known NSF Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (CHREC). ECE and SSOE faculty also maintain vibrant collaborations with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the Center for Energy, the Peterson Institute for NanoScience and Engineering, the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center, the Mascaro Center for Sustainable Innovation, the U.S. DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory, amongst others.

The department currently has 29 faculty members and offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering . Current enrollment consists of nearly 500 undergraduate and 200 graduate students. The SSOE just completed a $100 million renovation and redesign of Benedum Engineering Hall with state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories. As part of its growth, the ECE Department has recently been allotted additional space in Schenley Place, a new research-centric building on Pitt’s campus within walking distance of Benedum Hall, augmenting our additional presence at research facilities in Bakery Square.
