The University of Washington
Departments of Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical Engineering
Invites Applications for a Tenure-Track or Tenured Position
The University of Washington’s Department of Computer Science & Engineering and Department of Electrical Engineering have jointly formed a UW Experimental Computer Engineering Lab (ExCEL). All positions will be full-time joint appointments in both departments (with precise percentages as appropriate for the candidate). This year, we have one open position, and encourage exceptional candidates in computer engineering, at tenure-track Assistant Professor or Associate Professor or Research Assistant Professor to apply, although individuals at senior ranks with exceptional credentials may be considered. A moderate teaching and service load allows time for quality research and close involvement with students. The CSE and EE departments are co-located on campus, enabling cross department collaborations and initiatives. The Seattle area is particularly attractive given the presence of significant industrial research laboratories, a vibrant technology-driven entrepreneurial community, and spectacular natural beauty. Information about ExCEL can be found at www.excel.washington.edu/
We welcome applications in all computer engineering areas including but not exclusively: atomic scale devices & nanotechnology, implantable and biologically-interfaced devices, synthetic molecular engineering, VLSI systems and CAD, embedded systems, low power and mobile systems, sensor systems, parallel computing, network systems, and technology for the developing world. We expect candidates to have a strong commitment both to research and teaching. ExCEL is seeking individuals at all career levels, with appointments commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience. Applicants for both tenure-track and research positions must have earned a PhD by the date of appointment, or foreign equivalent. All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.
Please apply online at www.excel.washington.edu/apply with a letter of application, a complete curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, and the names of at least four references. Applications received by December 1, 2014 will be given priority consideration. Open positions are contingent on funding.
The University of Washington was awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Award for Faculty Career Flexibility in 2006. In addition, the University of Washington is a recipient of a National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Award to increase the participation of woman in academic science and engineering careers. We are building a culturally diverse faculty and encourage applications from women and minority candidates. University of Washington is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to, among other things, race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, status as protected veterans, or status as qualified individuals with disabilities.
The University of Washington
Department of Bioengineering
Invites Applications for a Tenure-Track or Tenured Position in Bioengineering
The Department of Bioengineering in the College of Engineering and School of Medicine at the University of Washington (UW) invites applications for two full-time tenure-track or tenured positions (9-month service period) at the level of assistant or associate professor.
Applications are sought from candidates in all areas of bioengineering. We especially encourage applicants with expertise in tissue engineering (including stem cell research), immunoengineering and neural engineering. Consideration will also be made to candidates doing work in areas that bind and support the above fields such as synthetic and systems biology, computational, biomaterials research, protein engineering, and imaging. While these priority areas are identified, strong candidates in the other biomedical engineering disciplines will be welcomed. The minimum qualifications are PhD or MD degrees (or foreign equivalent terminal degree) at the time of hire and evidence of excellence, originality and productivity in research and the potential for excellent teaching. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally recognized research program, to participate in the teaching and service missions of the department, and to follow UW’s strong tradition of collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.
The department includes 47 teaching and research faculty members, 172 graduate students, 188 undergraduates and 46 post-doctoral fellows. Our educational programs are consistently ranked in the top ten by US News and World Report and our esteemed faculty includes five members of the National Academy of Engineering, among other honors. Our department has built strong collaborative links with UW Medicine, ranked among the top hospitals in the nation in US News and World Report. Many of our faculty collaborate and/or are affiliated with prestigious local research institutions such as the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, the Institute for Systems Biology, the Allen Institute for Brain Science, the Program for Appropriate Technologies for Health (PATH), and the Seattle Biomedical Research Institute (SBRI), as well as with a vibrant community of local biotechnology companies.
