The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
(engineering.tufts.edu/ece) at Tufts University (www.tufts.edu/)
seeks candidates for a Full-time Professor of the Practice position
in the area of Electrical Engineering. Candidates must possess a
doctorate degree in electrical engineering or a closely related
field and have a minimum of 10 years of experience.
We seek applicants with expertise in electrical engineering.
Principal responsibilities will include graduate and undergraduate
instruction and mentorship, and University and professional
service. The successful candidate will join our Electrical
Engineering program with strengths in electronic materials,
photonics, sensors, biomedical devices, machine learning, and power
systems. Preference will be given to candidates with a proven
record of teaching.
Tufts' School of Engineering (SOE) distinguishes itself by the
interdisciplinary focus and integrative nature of its engineering
education and research programs, within the intellectually rich
environment of both a "Research I" university and a top-ranked
undergraduate institution. The past ten years have been a period of
extraordinary growth for SOE at Tufts, with recruitment of over
half of its current tenured and tenure-track faculty members and a
more than three-fold increase in research productivity. Tufts
offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere, coupled with
the intellectual and technological resources of a major research
university. Home to seven graduate and professional schools across
three campuses, Tufts University prides itself on its culture of
cross-school partnerships. Located on Tufts' Medford/Somerville
campus, only six miles from historic downtown Boston, SOE faculty
members have extensive opportunities for academic and industrial
collaboration, as well as participation in the rich intellectual
life of the region.
A good Professor of the Practice candidate will additionally
possess a wealth of industry experience to share with our students.
The Professor of the Practice rank is awarded when a candidate has
demonstrated outstanding professional accomplishments and achieved
senior stature in his/her field, demonstrated by a career path of
increasing responsibility and scope. In the case of this position,
we would consider a part-time hire if the finalist wished to
maintain part-time employment in industry.
