The College of Engineering at Temple University is poised for transformational growth through significant hiring within the College and a Campus Master Plan to expand University capacity intellectually and physically including major construction of new research space. As part of this process, the College of Engineering is searching for outstanding individuals at all academic levels to join the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as tenure-track faculty. 

Areas of expertise include but are not limited to computer engineering, Internet of Things, and smart grid.

Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or closely related fields. Successful candidates are expected to establish active externally funded research programs and to achieve excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Salaries for new faculty are highly competitive, and substantial resources have been allocated for start-up funding.

The College of Engineering is located at Temple University’s main campus, in the thriving city of Philadelphia – a city at the forefront of science and technology. Philadelphia is also the second largest city on the east coast and home to historic events, such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Temple University, founded in 1888, is one of the nation's distinguished comprehensive universities with an enrollment of 39,000, and is an invaluable asset for the intellectual, economic, and social enrichment of Pennsylvania.

The College is strengthening its doctoral, master’s, and ABET accredited undergraduate degree programs, and the new faculty members are expected to be instrumental in this process. The Department currently has 16 full time faculty, 350 undergraduate students, and 60 graduate students, and offers academic programs leading to ABET accredited BS, MS and PhD degrees. The Department has a growing research program that includes power systems, cyber security, sensing systems, neural engineering, signals, and communication with external funding from various federal and industrial sources including NSF, NIH, ONR, NASA, DoD, and DARPA. In addition, the faculty has strong research collaboration with Temple Medical School, Department of Bioengineering, Department of Computer and Information Science, Fox School of Business, and Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, the hub of future electric ships.

Requirements: Applicants should upload curriculum vitae, three recent publications, a statement of goals, research objectives and teaching philosophy, and contact information of three referees.
