Within the general field of electrical and computer engineering, we seek applications from candidates with expertise in one or more of the following strategic research areas: 1. Computer or Communications Engineering, with preference for a focus on machine learning, computer security and privacy, or data science; 2. Electrical Power Systems, with preference for a focus on power systems protection; 3. Systems Control, with preference for a focus on robotics.
Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, or a related field, at the time of appointment or soon after.
Successful candidates will be expected to initiate and lead an independent research program of international calibre, and to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
