The department invites applications for several tenure-track or tenured positions at the assistant professor level. Under special circumstances, applications at the associate and full professor levels will also be considered. The University of Florida is the flagship campus of the State of Florida university system and ranks amongst the top 10 best public US universities according to US News and World Report. The open positions are for candidates working in the intersection of core and emerging areas such as (but not limited to):
- signal processing,
- machine learning,
- advanced computing,
- smart power,
- augmented/virtual reality,
- cognitive computing.
Successful candidates for these positions must possess a PhD in an engineering-related field, a proven track record of research, and show great potential in developing an independent research and teaching program.
The ECE Department offers BS, MS and PhD degree programs with an enrollment of about 600 full-time undergraduate students and 600 graduate students of which about 200 are PhD students. Currently, the ECE Department has 52 tenured or tenure-track faculty members with rapid growth from 41 a few years ago. Among the active faculty are 16 IEEE fellows, 16 NSF CAREER Award winners, and 5 PECASE winners. The Department’s external research expenditures were a record high $17 million last year and the largest in the college of engineering. The Department enjoys strong rankings in U.S. News and World Report at 34th overall (and 19th public) in the graduate program. The department has excellent ties with industry as evidenced by three NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers in the areas of IoT Infrastructure (MIST), Large-scale Machine Learning (CBL), and High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (CHREC). A generous $5M gift by David and Daryl Nelms in 2017 created the Warren B. Nelms Institute of the Connected World. This new IoT Institute is led by the ECE Department with support from the college and university.
