The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Bucknell University invites applications for an open-rank, tenure-track faculty position to begin August 2014. We seek a teacher-scholar with a demonstrated ability to successfully work with a diverse student body and broad scholarly interests in electrical engineering. We are interested in candidates with expertise in robotics, controls, or embedded systems; photonics; nanotechnology; electronic materials; power electronics; sensor or instrumentation design; or software-defined radios. Other areas will also be considered. While teaching is the most important aspect of the candidate’s responsibilities, scholarly work in peer-reviewed venues is also essential as well as active service. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in electrical or computer engineering or a closely related field (ABD candidates will also be considered).

Given Bucknell’s mission of providing a broad, liberal education, we intend to give extra consideration to candidates who have applied their scholarly interests in socially relevant contexts including design and/or innovation, sustainability, health and human well-being, social justice, engineering education research or practice, or diversity issues in engineering.

Bucknell is a highly selective, predominantly undergraduate, private university with approximately 3600 students enrolled in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Engineering. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is a collegial community of nine tenured or tenure track-faculty who collaborate with colleagues across campus. The department has up-to-date undergraduate laboratory facilities.

As an Equal Opportunity Employer, Bucknell believes that students learn best in a diverse, inclusive community and is committed to academic excellence through diversity in its faculty, staff, and students. Thus, we seek candidates who are committed to Bucknell’s efforts to create a climate that fosters the growth and development of a diverse student body. We welcome applications from members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education or engineering.

To apply please include a CV, a statement of your teaching experience and educational beliefs/philosophy, a statement of your scholarly interests (particularly explaining application of the scholarship in the contexts described above), and contact information for at least three references.

Review of applications will begin on January 20th and continue until the position is filled.
