University of Washington
Computer Science & Engineering and
Tenure-Track and Research Faculty
The University of Washington’s Department of
Computer Science & Engineering and Depart-
ment of Electrical Engineering have jointly
formed a new UW Experimental Computer
Engineering Lab (ExCEL). In support of this
effort, the College of Engineering has committed to hiring several new faculty over the forthcoming years. All positions will be dual appointments in both departments (with precise
percentages as appropriate for the candidate).
This year, we have two open positions, and encourage exceptional candidates in computer
engineering, at tenure-track Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor, or Research Assistant Professor, Research Associate
Professor, or Research Professor to apply. A
moderate teaching and service load allows time
for quality research and close involvement with
students. The CSE and EE departments are co-located on campus, enabling cross department
collaborations and initiatives. The Seattle area
is particularly attractive given the presence of
significant industrial research laboratories, a
vibrant technology-driven entrepreneurial
community, and spectacular natural beauty. Information about ExCEL can be found at
We welcome applications in all computer
engineering areas including but not exclusively: atomics scale devices & nanotechnology, implantable and biologically-interfaced
devices, synthetic molecular engineering,
VLSI, embedded systems, sensor systems, parallel computing, network systems, and technology for the developing world. We expect
candidates to have a strong commitment both
to research and teaching. ExCEL is seeking individuals at all career levels, with appointments commensurate with the candidate’s
qualifications and experience. Applicants for
both tenure-track and research positions must
have earned a PhD by the date of appointment.
Please apply online at http://www.
excel.washington.edu/jobs.html with a letter
of application, a complete curriculum vitae,
statement of research and teaching interests,
and the names of at least four references. Applications received by January 31st, 2008 will
