The Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Arkansas invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured faculty position at the Associate or the Full Professor level to begin in the fall 2021. The Department of Electrical Engineering is deeply committed to increase diversity among faculty and students in the department. This position is part of university strategic investment initiative on recently identified signature area of material science and engineering. This position is a joint appointment between the Department of Electrical Engineering (75%) and the Physics Department (25%), with Electrical Engineering being the home department.
Committed, energetic, highly motivated candidates compassionate about teaching and research in academic institution are sought to join the University of Arkansas’s material science and engineering faculty. The selected applicant will teach both electrical engineering and physics courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels on a rotational basis. Priority will be given to those with specialization in the area (or closely related) of emerging materials for electronics and photonics. In addition, the candidates need to demonstrate interest at collaborative research and have excellent communication skills and great passion to teach college level classes in electrical engineering, material science, and physics. Applicants shall have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, physics, or related discipline with focus on material science. Applicants should demonstrate excellent research records in either academia or industry. The successful applicant is expected to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and demonstrate a commitment to teaching and mentoring at undergraduate and graduate students. A startup package will be provided to establish an externally funded research program.
The Electrical Engineering Department has 16 faculty, is one of eight departments in the College of Engineering, and the home to several nationally supported research Centers at the University of Arkansas. The department provides the education necessary for electrical engineers and the faculty of the department play an integral role in teaching and providing undergraduate students with research experience. The Physics Department has 21 faculty members, eight of which are focused and supported on research in material science. In addition, the campus is the home of the Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering located in a new Material Science and Engineering building. The Institute is composed of 20 faculty members from departments across the university and was the home for two awards of the NSF MRSEC Center
Applications received by February 1, 2021 will be given full consideration. Applications received after that date will be reviewed as necessary to fill the position. Applications must include:
1) a letter of application including statements of teaching and research interests.
2) a complete curriculum vitae.

About Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Arkansas
Program Educational Objectives
The University of Arkansas, the state land grant university, is a nationally competitive, student-centered, teaching and research university serving Arkansas and the world. As part of the University of Arkansas, the Electrical Engineering Department, we'll provide the education necessary to establish the best foundation for electrical engineers at all degree levels, and prepare them to be nationally competitive leaders, skillful at undertaking the current and future challenges facing our world.
The educational mission of the department is conducted through both the undergraduate and graduate programs. The Program Educational Objectives (PEO's) for the undergraduate program, which leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, are to produce graduates who in three to five years after graduation:
Are recruited in a competitive market and valued as reliable and competent employees by a wide variety of industries; in particular, electrical engineering industries,
Succeed, if pursued, in graduate studies such as engineering, science, law, medicine, business, and other professions,
Understand the need for life-long learning and c...ontinued professional development for a successful and rewarding career, and
Accept responsibility for leadership roles, in their profession, in their communities, and in the global society.
The BS degree in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET; https://www.abet.org.
These are the program's student outcomes
an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics,
an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors,
an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences,
an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts,
an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives,
an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation,analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions,
an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
