November 01, 2017

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the George Washington University (GWU) invites applications for three tenured or tenure-track faculty appointments starting in Fall 2018, in the broad areas of nanotechnology, communications, and signal and image processing, respectively. Appointments for the nanotechnology position will be made at any rank, and appointments for the other two positions will be at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.

All applicants must have an earned doctorate in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a relevant discipline at the time of appointment. They must demonstrate a solid publication record, and must have established or exhibit the potential to establish a strong, externally sponsored research program, commensurate with the rank they are seeking. A commitment to excellence in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels is also required.

Applicants for the nanotechnology position must additionally have demonstrated the effective use of clean room facilities as an integral part of their research and a track-record of experimental research in nanotechnology.
