Multiple Tenure-Track Faculty Positions
The College of Engineering at Boston University has embarked on a bold new strategic plan aimed at excellence and impact along convergent and collaborative research themes. The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Boston University (BU) anticipates multiple openings for Tenure-Track Assistant Professors, pending approval by the Provost, with an anticipated start date of Fall 2022. While all candidates will be considered, this year’s searches are particularly focused on the following areas:
Applied AI and Machine/Deep Learning for Computer Vision and Computational Imaging Systems. We seek candidates in all areas of computer vision or computational imaging, with potential applications to image and video analysis and enhancement, biomedical imaging, robotics, autonomous systems, surveillance, biometrics, or manufacturing.
Computer Architecture and Systems. We seek candidates in computer architecture, operating systems, compilers, cybersecurity or software engineering to build future cloud and edge computing systems for a smart, secure and connected society. Potential application areas include healthcare, communications, transportation, finance, and scientific computing.
Candidates with research programs that transcend the traditional boundaries of ECE may explore affiliated appointments in appropriate departments and divisions, such as Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Systems Engineering, or the newly created Faculty of Computing and Data Sciences.
BU ECE attracts exceptional undergraduate and graduate student and faculty talent at all levels. Research activity by primary faculty is approximately $26M per year. The College of Engineering is currently ranked 35th in the nation by US News and World Report, and 15th among private universities. The College is 5th in the nation in total funding from NSF among engineering schools at private universities. BU ECE faculty lead and participate in several high-profile, multidisciplinary research centers, including the Center for Information and Systems Engineering, the Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science and Engineering, the Center for Systems Neuroscience, the Rajen Kilachand Center for Integrated Life Science and Engineering, and the Photonics Center.
We are looking for outstanding candidates who have earned or are expected to earn a Ph.D. in the relevant search area before Fall 2022, demonstrate potential for leading an independent and vibrant funded research program in their area of expertise, can teach effectively at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and can utilize their expertise to strengthen collaborative research within the department and beyond.
The COE believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. BU College of Engineering is a recipient of the Bronze award for ASEE Diversity Recognition Program. To that, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.
