The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Florida invites applications for multiple, full-time, 9-month, tenure track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant/Associate/Full Professor with a research focus in the following areas:

  • Emerging Semiconductor Electronic Devices (including but not limited to Memristors/Ionics, 2D Devices, Ferroelectric Memories, Sustainable Electronics, etc.)
  • Advanced Packaging and Heterogenous Integration
  • System-on-Chip Design, Domain-Specific Architecture, Back End of Line Devices
  • Integrated Photonics, Quantum Photonics, Electro-optical Systems, and/or Spintronics
  • Neuromorphic and Unconventional Computing (e.g. non-von Neumann paradigm)
  • Wide-Bandgap Materials, Energy Conversion Devices, and Power Electronics
  • THz and Optics for Imaging and Sensing (e.g. Biomedical, Robotic, Remote Sensing applications)


The ECE Department offers BS, MS, and PhD degree programs with an enrollment of about 600 full-time undergraduate students and 700 graduate students of which about 300 are PhD students. Currently, the ECE Department has 55 tenured or tenure-track faculty members. Among the active faculty are 13 IEEE fellows, 18 NSF CAREER Award winners, and 5 PECASE winners. The Department’s external research expenditures were a record high $26 million last year and the largest in the college of engineering.

The Department enjoys strong rankings in U.S. News and World Report at 25th overall (and 14th public) in the graduate program. The department leads UF’s role in the NSF IoT4Ag ERC and fuels industry partnerships via three NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers in the areas of IoT hardware (MIST), large-scale machine learning (CBL), and mission-critical computing (SHREC). The department also enjoys strong collaboration among faculty through successful institutes in Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research, the Warren B. Nelms Institute for Connected world, and the Nanoscience Institute for Medical and Engineering Technology (NIMET).
