Faculty Openings

The University of Notre Dame invites applications and nominations for open tenured and tenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Electrical Engineering.

Over the last ten years Notre Dame has made strategic investments to add faculty and infrastructure in nanoelectronics, wireless communications, advanced diagnostics and therapeutics, cyber-physical systems, and sustainable energy. The opening of Stinson Remick Hall of Engineering in 2010 has provided a wealth of sophisticated lab facilities, including a 10,000-square-foot state-of-the-art clean room. To sustain and grow these efforts, multiple new hires are anticipated, and candidates at all levels – from assistant professor to full professor with an endowed chair – are encouraged to apply. Senior appointments will require an outstanding record of achievement and international stature. Recent (or imminent) doctoral graduates with demonstrated research prowess and exceptional promise are encouraged to apply for junior positions. All technical areas will be considered, but areas of particular interest include:
•     electronic materials and devices;
•     novel circuits, including circuits based on emerging materials/device technologies and circuits that enable emerging applications such as self-powered systems, bioelectronics, and the Internet of Things;
•     system-level methods and technologies (e.g., signal processing, controls, and communications) addressing grand challenges such as the reliable and affordable delivery of power, environment and infrastructure monitoring, smart manufacturing, systems biology, healthcare delivery, and security.
All positions require a Ph.D. in electrical engineering or its equivalent. Those interested can apply on-line at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5103.

The University of Notre Dame is an equal opportunity employer. We particularly invite applications from women and members of groups that are under-represented in science and engineering.

Postdoctoral Openings

A Postdoctoral research position at the University of Notre Dame is anticipated beginning April 2015 to conduct research under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Pratt. The anticipated project will involve working with radio frequency transceivers and developing, implementing, and testing signal processing algorithms associated with transmitter and receiver operation. U.S. citizenship may be required depending upon the terms of the grant. The research will involve consideration of various receiver architectures, the development and implementation of advanced signal processing techniques, and development of a real-time processing capability based primarily on FPGA and perhaps GPU resources.  In addition to these efforts, the research could involve experimentation using newly acquired field research vehicles. Candidates with a background in electrical engineering are preferred. The duration of the Fellowship is for up to three years, with annual renewal. If you have received your PhD and are interested to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Thomas Pratt via email (Thomas.pratt@nd.edu).
