Job no: 495379
Work type: Regular Full-Time
Location: Glassboro, New Jersey
Categories: Faculty - College of Engineering

With a dramatic increase in undergraduate and graduate enrollment and a new building that allows us to expand, our award winning and nationally ranked (#16 in best undergraduate programs) Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department is growing. To accommodate this robust growth, we seek energetic and innovative teacher-scholars, and invite applications for non-tenure-track, full-time teaching positions.

The successful candidates will be responsible for developing and teaching project-based courses in the ECE curriculum. Hence, candidates must have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching, a proven record of, or exceptional potential for developing innovative pedagogical approaches, courses, labs, and projects for a modern ECE curriculum.

Applicants with expertise in all fundamental areas of ECE are invited to apply, however, our greatest needs are in the following areas:

  1. Digital and embedded systems,
  2. Circuits & Electronics,
  3. Computer architecture,
  4. Control systems,
  5. VLSI design, and
  6. Electromagnetics.

The Department greatly values experiential and project-based learning, integrating emerging topics and technologies into the curriculum, and provides state-of-the-art equipment, instruments, rapid prototyping, fabrication, and computational resources to support such activities. Our dedication to project-based learning is reflected in our curriculum, as all our courses have lab/project components. As a result, we seek individuals who share this dedication, have the skills and passion to develop and deliver innovative hands-on lab projects and other experiential learning activities using appropriate modern tools. The position also includes service responsibilities, such as helping with the Department’s assessment activities. Therefore, any experience with assessment, pedagogy, and scholarship of engineering education would be very valuable. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to be involved with student projects in the Rowan Engineering Clinic sequence, and – if interested – contribute to the scholarly activities of our faculty and students.

Summary of primary responsibilities, then, include:

  • teaching core and elective ECE courses,
  • developing innovative curriculum components, including new courses in emerging areas,
  • mentoring and advising students, as well as student groups and clubs,
  • helping with Department's assessment efforts
  • contributing to our service activities to further our collective mission and vision at the department, college and university levels.

Ideal candidates must also embrace

  • interdisciplinary collaborations,
  • work with multi-disciplinary student and faculty teams,
  • be committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,
  • have excellent communication skills, and
  • have a genuine interest in student mentoring.

Applicants must have earned at least a Master of Science degree, preferably a PhD, in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or related discipline. The appointment is non-tenure-track, with renewable multi-year contracts, based on performance, departmental needs and university and budgetary approvals. Rowan University does not support visa applications for this position, therefore, applicants must have current and permanent legal authorization to work in the United States.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.

For full consideration, applications should include the below-listed items: 1) a cover letter summarizing qualifications and the applicant’s interest in the position, 2) current and detailed CV, 3) a statement of teaching interests (including the list of courses the applicant feels most qualified to teach, as well as teaching philosophy), 4) a statement of diversity, inclusion and equity and 5) names and contact information for three references. Additional and supplemental documentation, such as examples of innovative course material developed by the candidate, student evaluations, or other relevant materials may also be provided. Review of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Questions can be directed to [email protected], Dr. Robi Polikar, Department Head, Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. Additional departmental information can be found at http://www.rowan.edu/ece

Rowan University values diversity, equity and inclusion, and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. All positions are contingent upon budget appropriations. This position does not support employment visa applications. Therefore, all applicants must have appropriate legal status to work in the United States.

Working at Rowan University 

Rowan University, located a half-hour outside of Philadelphia with its main campus in suburban Glassboro, N.J., is an institution on the move.

This summer, the University opened Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU) in partnership with Cooper University Health Care, in Camden. The first new four-year, M.D.-granting medical school in New Jersey in more than 35 years, CMSRU welcomed its first class in August 2012.

Rowan continues to work with the Borough of Glassboro and private developers on Rowan Boulevard, a $300 million redevelopment project that links the University’s main campus to the historic downtown. This fall alone, the partners broke ground for a new academic building/parking garage and a Marriott Courtyard Hotel. Rowan Boulevard already includes a Barnes & Noble Collegiate Superstore, housing for approximately 1,300 students and retail space.

The University also recently created a School of Biomedical Sciences, which joins nine colleges. In addition to CMSRU they are: the Rohrer College of Business, Communication & Creative Arts, Education, Engineering, Graduate & Continuing Education, Humanities & Social Sciences, Performing Arts, and Science & Mathematics.

Earlier in 2012, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie awarded Rowan state research institution status (not Carnegie classification) as part of the New Jersey Medical and Health Science Education Restructuring Act, making Rowan only the second comprehensive public research institution in the State. That Act also opened the door to Rowan partnering with Rutgers-Camden to create a College of Health Sciences in Camden near CMSRU. The vision for that College calls for schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, food science and 16 allied health programs. The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in nearby Stratford, N.J., is to become part of Rowan in the near future. When that occurs, Rowan will be only the second school in the nation with M.D. and D.O. medical programs.

A selective, medium‑sized public university, Rowan is recognized for its nationally ranked academic and athletic programs, talented professors and high‑tech facilities. The University, which has a branch campus in Camden, N.J., and the South Jersey Technology Park at Rowan University in Mantua, N.J., prides itself on being able to provide its more than 12,000 students with an outstanding education at an exceptional value.

 The University offers 57 undergraduate majors, including four undergraduate degree-completion programs; three dual bachelor’s/master’s degrees; more than 40 master’s level programs (including specializations); approximately 25 graduate-level certificate programs; 12 post-baccalaureate programs or endorsements; and two doctoral/specialist programs, including the M.D. degree from its medical school. Students can pursue their degrees at the main campus, the Camden campus, online or at several community colleges, as well as at CMSRU.

Rowan has been recognized by national organizations that evaluate colleges and universities. U.S. News & World Report ranked Rowan 19th among Best Regional Universities—North, third among the public institutions in the category. The Princeton Review named Rowan among 222 institutions in its Best in the Northeast section of its website feature 2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region and included the Rohrer College of Business in its edition of the Best 296 Business Schools. The Princeton Review also listed Rowan, which in the past has been recognized by the U.S. EPA as a Top Green Power Purchaser in its athletic conference, in its Guide to 322 Green Colleges: 2012 Edition.


Currently, Rowan University employs 1,090 faculty members: full-time tenure-track professors, full-time temporary professors, part-time professors and adjuncts. The University also employs 940 staff members.

Recognizing that employees, students and the community are valuable resources, Rowan’s Human Resources Department supports the University’s vision and mission; encourages the personal and professional enrichment of employees; provides services appropriate to employees’ needs; and promotes awareness, learning and collaboration.
