Computer Engineering, Open Rank Faculty (2 positions)

Posted: 03/02/17 | SHARE:


The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences of University at Albany seeks applicants for open rank (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) tenure-track faculty positions beginning Fall 2017 for its Computer Engineering Department, which will soon be renamed Electrical and Computer Engineering to more accurately reflect its full scope.

The University at Albany is building a research-intensive college of engineering in the tradition of the nation's leading public research institutions, developing academic programs and research thrusts for which we are particularly well positioned by leveraging our considerable existing strengths. The College is in an exciting period of rapid expansion, as this year environmental engineering will join our long-standing programs in computer science and information science, with programs in electrical and computer engineering just launched. This is just the beginning; programs in several other engineering disciplines are currently in development. We expect to create six or more new engineering programs in the College by 2021. All programs will offer fully accredited BS, MS, and PhD degrees. Our undergraduate programs, in particular, will prepare students for careers not just in engineering and other applied sciences, but also for careers and/or postgraduate studies in many other fields, including law, medicine, finance, management, and more.
