Wayne State University – Assistant Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

Embedded Systems, Advanced Computer Systems, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and IoT for Automotive Applications

The College of Engineering at Wayne State University invites candidates to apply for an assistant professor position in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. 

As the vehicles of the future will be loaded with electronics, the ECE department’s strategic plan calls for strengthening our research and education programs in automotive electronics. The plan considers the fact that Wayne State University is one of the largest suppliers of engineers at both the B.S. and M.S. levels to the automotive industry in Michigan and elsewhere. It also distinguishes itself from other institutions in the automotive field by focusing our research and educational efforts mainly on embedded systems, advanced computer systems, AI, and IoT for automotive applications, targeting smart devices and systems for mobility and next-generation vehicles. The Department currently hosts an NSF Industry–University Cooperative Research Center, eCAT (electric, Connected and Autonomous Technologies for Mobility),  https://www.ecat.center/.

This tenure-track position which will serve as a catalyst for broad areas of electrical and computer engineering, as well as the semiconductor and the automotive industries, will target faculty at the assistant professor level with expertise in advanced computer systems and embedded systems, digital and edge computing, VLSI design, and on-chip hardware security. The successful candidate will teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, supervise graduate students and seek funding for his/her research. This position will support our graduate programs in diversified areas of electrical and computer engineering such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and semiconductor engineering targeting automotive electronics to better serve the local industry with well-trained graduates having the relevant and timely skillsets.
