The Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New Mexico State University invites applications for two 9-month, tenure-track faculty appointments at the level of Assistant Professor. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering or a closely-related field. Applicants for the positions are expected to show significant potential to create an internationally-recognized funded research program and should have a strong publication record. The successful candidate is also expected to demonstrate a solid commitment to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. One of these two positions is targeted toward power systems with an emphasis on smart-grids, integration of renewable energy, and application of controls to the electric grids and microgrids . The other position is targeted toward autonomous, robotic, and/or human-machine systems with effective integration of software and hardware, although other exemplary candidates in research areas that complement existing strengths in the department may be considered. For both positions, we are particularly interested in applicants whose research areas can support interdisciplinary research endeavors. The Klipsch School has 20 tenure-track faculty positions and a current enrollment of approximately 250 undergraduate students, 60 MS students, and 30 PhD students.
The application packet should consist of a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and names and contact information of three references. Optionally, applicants may attach up to three key publications. Screening of applications will begin August 15, 2019.
