Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

We invite applications for a continuing position of Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in our dynamic, world class, and growing department.

You should ideally have a strong research record in machine learning closely aligned with electrical and electronic hardware applications, but other compatible areas will also be carefully considered. Other compatible areas could include the internet of things, autonomous and/or mechatronics systems, applied signal processing (particularly associated with biomedical imaging, and adaptive optics), and networked systems/communications.

You will be motivated to develop and maintain a vigorous research programme in areas appropriate to your expertise, in collaboration with your choice of other researchers and research groups, and particularly New Zealand industry partners. To support this career advancement, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has very active researchers in areas such as biomedical applications, nanotechnology applications, renewable energy, power systems, communications, control/automation, and advanced signal processing. The Department fosters close collaborative connections with other groups, including the Departments of Computer Science and Software Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, the Wireless Research Centre, the Electric Power Engineering Centre, and the Human Interface Technologies Lab. Existing research collaborations are also active with other Universities and research institutes in New Zealand and from around the world.

The Department has a keen emphasis on physical project-based teaching with a basis involving embedded systems. As such, you would be expected to teach into Electrical, Electronics, Computer, and Mechatronics Engineering courses that make extensive use of embedded software and hardware.

You will be working in a strong, supportive and forward-looking Department dedicated to excellence in research and teaching. The Department is therefore particularly interested in applicants with experience in successful collaboration with other researchers and industry, and high performance in teaching.
