Lecturer, Full-time and Part-time - Electrical and Computer Engineering


The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the School of Engineering at Tufts University invites applications for the following two positions to begin in 2017:

  • A full-time Lecturer and
  • A half-time Lecturer

Candidates are sought primarily in the area of Computer Engineering or a closely related field with expertise in topics including, but not limited, to computer architecture, security, MPSoC design, embedded and real-time systems, heterogeneous computing and GPUs, digital logic, programming and data structures. The department is interested in building its offerings of advanced courses for undergraduate seniors and MS students. Thus, a strong command of core undergraduate material as well as expertise in at least one specialized area of computer engineering is necessary.

These are non-tenure-track positions. The initial appointment term will be for three years with the possibility of renewal contingent on annual performance review results.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering has grown significantly in the past decade. Located in the Boston area, the department benefits from outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, collaborative faculty, and cross-disciplinary research opportunities. Tufts University is one of the smallest universities ranked as a Research 1 university, and it offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere, coupled with the intellectual and technological resources of a major research university. Tufts University supports and encourages a culture of interdisciplinary research and there are numerous such opportunities within the School of Engineering, the School of Arts and Sciences, and through graduate and professional schools.

Tufts' School of Engineering distinguishes itself by the interdisciplinary focus and integrative nature of its engineering education within the intellectually rich environment of a research university. Located only six miles from historic downtown Boston, faculty members on the Tufts Medford/Somerville campus have extensive opportunities for academic and industrial collaboration as well as participation in the rich intellectual life of the area. The School of Engineering is in the midst of a period of exciting growth that has seen recruitment of outstanding new faculty, a quadrupling of funded research over the last ten years, addition of new laboratory space, an emphasis on building diversity in engineering, and major curricular initiatives at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
