Professor of Flexible and Efficient Spectrum Usage


Responsibilities:  Purdue  University's  College of Engineering  has  identified  four  winning  research  teams  for faculty  hiring during the coming year.  These preeminent teams, chosen from among 32 that  competed  this fall, were  selected  because  their  work  has  the  potential  for dramatic  impact  and  international preeminence.  New faculty will be hired to strengthen the teams as part of the  strategic  growth  plan, which will add as many as 107 faculty  members  over  five years.  In addition  to  the  team  hiring,  other  hires  will be related  to  strengthening disciplines  and taking advantage of opportunities to enhance  quality and diversity.  The strategic  growth  plan is part of Big Moves, a range of university-wide initiatives  designed to broaden  Purdue's  global impact and enhance educational opportunities for its students.  One of the four teams  is engaged in research  and education  related to the  flexible and  efficient usage of spectrum.    This team  will focus on techniques for more  efficient use  of the increasingly   congested   radio  spectrum  for  communications   in  commercial,  military  and  emergency  services applications.  The College of Engineering is accepting applications  for two tenured or tenure-track faculty (at any level) in this area.  These new faculty members  will build on strengths and leverage existing research  capabilities existing at Purdue.


Qualifications: Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in Engineering, Science or a related field. They should have a distinguished academic record, exceptional potential for world-class research, and a commitment to teach in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Specific research fields of interest  for these positions include, but are not limited to, spectrally efficient techniques for modulation and demodulation,  cognitive radio, spectrum  sensing, applications of game theory to communications, spectrum  policy, theoretical  and experimental software radio, economic analysis of wireless systems, auction theory applied to communication systems, and techniques related  to shared  spectrum systems.  The primary faculty appointment will be in a school of the College of Engineering and will depend on the candidate's qualifications.  The successful candidate  will teach undergraduate and graduate courses  in topics related to spectrum, policy, and communications,  conduct research  in their field of expertise, publish and present  research findings, participate  in professional  activities, and advise graduate student  research.
