Tenured and Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame invites applications and nominations for tenured and tenure-track faculty positions.  Appointments at all levels – from assistant professor to full professor with an endowed chair – are possible. All technical areas will be considered, but areas of particular interest include:

Energy-efficient and high-performance computing in the “post Moore’s Law era,” including circuits based on emerging materials/device technologies that enable applications such as self-powered wearable electronics, neuromorphic circuits, and IoT applications;

  • electronic materials and devices;
  • system-level methods and technologies (e.g., communications/networking, control, and signal processing) that address grand challenges such as reliable and affordable power delivery, environmental monitoring, smart manufacturing, healthcare, and security.

Applicants must submit a CV, a teaching statement, a research statement, and contact information for three professional references.  All materials can be provided at http://apply.interfolio.com/45241. For best consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply by December 31, 2017.

 Research Assistant Professor

Research Assistant Professor (RAP) will have primary responsibility of being the technical lead co-supervising a team of graduate students and post docs working on Prof. Suman Datta’s multiple research grants.  RAP will also assist by conducting research directly on some of the grants.  RAP will assist Prof. Datta in writing proposals for future grants.

Currently, Suman Datta is the Technical Director of the SRC/NRI E2CDA EXCEL Center  and has 7 full-time graduate students and post docs working on 10 research grants.  RAP will assist and provide daily support for a subset of these research projects.  This position will provide an opportunity for RAP to interact and have exposure with the leading academic researchers within and outside United States and corporate research personnel from the top-tier companies in the semiconductor sector. The position is a one year appointment renewable annually based on performance and availability of external funding.

Applicant should have a PhD in Electrical (Electronic) Engineering or Physics with a dissertation in solid-state semiconductor devices and circuits  area and have had at least 2 years of post doctoral research experience or equivalent industrial research experience at a top semiconductor company.  Favorable consideration will be given to candidates with an established record of research creativity, productivity, and impact; experience in supervising graduate students and experience in preparing proposals.

Staff Openings

Senior Research Engineer

The position involves research and supporting activities associated with the modeling, analysis, and testing of radio frequency communications, radar, and remote sensing concepts using software defined radio platforms such as the Ettus X310 system and wideband digitizers.  The position will have a focus on developing FPGA-based signal processing implementations as well as integrating subsystems to achieve real-time, high throughput capabilities.  Depending on project awards, the position could involve implementation of real-time interference suppression algorithms or the integration of a system and implementation of algorithms for spectrum monitoring.  In both cases, real-time FPGA processing is critical to achieving technical objectives associated with the projects.  Additionally, the position involves leading or supporting RF experimental measurement campaigns that will be conducted in laboratories or outdoor sites at the University of Notre Dame as well as at other external sites, to include longer-term testing campaigns with Notre Dame's field research vehicles.  The position will involve the preparation of technical (theoretical) reports and journal papers (as appropriate)  describing the theory associated with developed techniques and the performance of the techniques in comparison with conventional approaches.  The position also requires the generation of invention disclosures and material for patent applications as warranted.  The position will also require supervision of postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students to coordinate research efforts to ensure fulfillment of grant research obligations. Additionally, the position may involve business development, to identify and explore potential applications of Notre Dame technology and to pursue funding lines for the conduct of research.   Other supporting activities are associated with the position, such as laboratory oversight, participation at meetings with sponsors (to include giving presentations), and other miscellaneous activities to directly support the grant-based and contract-based research.
