The College of Engineering at Boston University has embarked on a bold 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 an opening for a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in the area of Computer Systems. We seek candidates in 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 2023, 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.
