The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) in Rolla, Missouri is seeking outstanding applicants for a Kummer Endowed Professorship in Electrical Engineering who will have a high degree of synergy and collaboration on research with the Missouri S&T Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Laboratory. Preference will be given to applicants who can contribute to the department’s strengths, particularly in the areas of electromagnetic compatibility, electromagnetic susceptibility, signal integrity, VLSI, packaging, and silicon photonics. Competitive salary commensurate with the rank and qualifications of the candidates will be offered.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or other related disciplines such as physics or similar fields. Candidates from national laboratories or industry with a strong research record coupled with academic experience are encouraged to apply as well. Successful candidates will be expected to have strong commitments to (a) contributing to the departmental and college research efforts, (b) high-quality teaching both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, (c) service in the applicant’s professional community and our institution, and (d) increasing the diversity of both the student body and faculty. Applicants should have demonstrated excellence in research and evidence of potential for excellence in external funding, high-quality teaching, service, and increasing diversity.
The ECE department has 32 faculty members, approximately 500 undergraduate and 150 graduate students, and had research expenditures of approximately $4M in the past fiscal year. The Missouri S&T EMC Laboratory is a team of approximately 60 people including 3 tenure-track faculty, 2 research professors, several post-docs, and 40-50 graduate students. It is considered internationally to be one of the top research institutions in the area. The laboratory has a $10M+ experimental facility to support experimental and industry-based research. It has research expenditures of ~$2M per year with funding from both federal and industry sources. A significant portion of the research is funded through the highly successful NSF I/UCRC comprised of over 20 industry partners, e.g. IBM, Intel, Cisco, Sony, Google, and Boeing.

Missouri S&T is one of the nation’s leading technological research universities with about 100 degree programs in 39 disciplines. Founded in 1870 as one of the first technological institutions west of the Mississippi. Located about 100 miles west of St. Louis in the multicultural community of Rolla, Missouri S&T is an accessible, safe and friendly campus surrounded by Ozarks scenery. One of the four campuses of the University of Missouri System, Missouri S&T offers degrees in engineering, the sciences, liberal arts, humanities and business, with master’s and Ph.D. programs available in many of the science and engineering programs and master’s degrees in biological sciences, business administration and technical communication. With nearly 9,000 students enrolled on campus and online, Missouri S&T is big enough to accommodate a diverse population, yet small enough for individuals to build high visibility, impactful careers! Missouri S&T recently established the Kummer Institute and the Kummer College of Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Economic Development as a result of a $300 million gift from benefactors, Fred and June Kummer. A Kummer Endowed Professor will be a significant partner in Kummer-related research and curricular initiatives, see https://kummerinstitute.mst.edu.
Missouri S&T’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the campus, and the greater University of Missouri System are deeply committed to inclusion and valuing diversity. S&T has undertaken a number of initiatives to improve campus life and the work-life balance of its faculty and staff (see http://hr.mst.edu). Missouri S&T seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples.
