School Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Department/Area Electrical Engineering

The John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University seeks applicants for a position at either the tenure-track or tenured rank in the area of Electrical Engineering with a focus on pervasive systems, broadly interpreted, with an expected start date of July 1, 2020.

Candidates should have demonstrated expertise in one or more aspects of electrical engineering that pertain to sensing, computation, communication, actuation, or control in pervasive, widely-distributed systems that interact with human and physical environments. We are seeking candidates with a record of theoretical or experimental innovation, a strong vision for an original research program, and an interest in working collaboratively with experimentalists and theoreticians across electrical engineering and in adjacent science and engineering disciplines. Candidates should have enthusiasm for teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses in electrical engineering. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.

Basic Qualifications

Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree by the expected start date.

Additional Qualifications

In addition, we seek candidates who have a strong research record, and a commitment to undergraduate teaching and graduate training.

Special Instructions

Required application documents include a cover letter, a CV, a statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and up to three representative papers. The cover letter should identify the candidate’s areas of core interest within electrical engineering. In addition, we ask for a statement describing efforts to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past, current, and anticipated future contributions in these areas. Candidates are also required to submit the names and contact information for three to five references, and the application is complete only when three letters have been submitted. At least one letter must come from someone who has not served as the candidate’s undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral advisor. We encourage candidates to apply by December 15, 2019 but will continue to review applications until the position is filled.
