New Faculty Positions

The University of Kansas (KU) Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) seeks outstanding individuals for five tenure track positions in the disciplines of electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science. Successful candidates are expected to contribute to the development of academic and research programs and to contribute to the research community. Applicants must have an earned doctorate or equivalent in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, or related fields at the time of appointment. The positions to the right are open at the assistant professor (tenure-track) level, with the possibility of higher rank for the exceptional applicant. Exceptional applicants in other closely related areas to the above topics may be considered.

About the EECS Department

EECS leads the KU School of Engineering with 36 faculty members and a research volume of over $8 million per year. The EECS department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, interdisciplinary computing, and information technology.
