Tenure-Track Positions

The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) seeks applicants for tenure-track positions in Electrical Engineering, in the broad area of Emerging Topics in Electrical Engineering Systems. The expected start date is July 1, 2014.

We invite applications in broadly defined areas of EE Systems such as Optimization, Control, Information Theory, Communications, Signal Processing, Decision Theory, Stochastic Systems, interactions between these fields (e.g. control with limited information), and applications. We are particularly interested in the areas of optimization, non-classical control (e.g. quantum mechanical, new approaches to distributed, non-linear and stochastic control), or modern applications (e.g. biological, stochastic adaptation against cyber-attacks, dynamic control of materials properties) for these foundational areas. However, applications from strong applicants in the general area of Emerging EE Systems will be considered.

Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree by the expected start date. In addition, we seek candidates who have an outstanding research record and a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and graduate training. We are in particular looking for broadly educated and multidisciplinary applicants who can interact with a wide range of both Electrical Engineering and other SEAS faculty. Priority will be given to the overall potential of the candidate.

The Electrical Engineering program benefits from outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, an excellent location, significant industrial collaboration, and substantial support from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Information about SEAS's current faculty, research, and educational programs is available at http://www.seas.harvard.edu

Required application documents include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, a teaching statement, up to three representative papers, and names and contact information for at least three to five references. We encourage candidates to apply by Feb 15, 2014, but will continue to review applications until the positions are filled. Applicants will apply on-line at http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/5293

Harvard is an Equal Opportunity/ Affirmative Action Employer. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
