The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position.

ECE Data Science Position

The University of Rochester seeks applicants for a tenure track position in the broadly defined area of data science research.  We seek candidates interested in the collection, analysis, visualization, distribution and management of large complex data sets and in large, complex systems. Candidates conducting research in aspects of these fields, such as distributed systems and sensor networks, novel applications of signal processing methodologies to analyze complex data, applications of information theoretic methods in the analysis of complex data, multimedia and the semantic web, managing design complexity, analytical modeling and analysis of large-scale computing systems, emerging beyond-CMOS circuits and systems, and the intersection of nanoelectronics and non-Von Neumann computing are encouraged to apply. 

Candidates must have a PhD in ECE, CS, or a related discipline.  Candidates should apply online at:


Consideration of applications at any rank will begin immediately and continue until all interview slots are filled.  Candidates should apply no later than January 1, 2014 for full consideration.

The Department of Computer Science (http://www.cs.rochester.edu/people/recruit.html) is also searching for a candidate in the area of data science. While the two searches are concurrent and will be coordinated, candidates should apply to the department that best matches their academic background and interests.

The ECE Department has a collegial atmosphere, well-funded research programs, and excellent students from the undergraduate through doctoral levels. The department strongly encourages collaboration and ECE research collaborations have spanned all six of the University’s Schools including Arts, Sciences and Engineering, Medicine and Dentistry, Nursing, Music, Business, and Education.

The University of Rochester is a private, Tier I research university with superb laboratory facilities and multiple interdisciplinary research centers.  It is at the heart of the high tech Finger Lakes Region of New York, providing many opportunities for industry collaboration as well as a high quality of life. The University of Rochester consistently ranks among the top 30 institutions, both public and private, in federal funding for research and development.  Teaching loads are light and classes are small. One-half of the University of Rochester’s undergraduates go on to post-graduate or professional education. The greater Rochester area is home to over a million people, including 80,000 students who attend its 8 colleges and universities. .

The University of Rochester has a strong commitment to diversity and actively encourages applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in higher education. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
