The College of Engineering at Boston University has embarked on a bold strategic plan aimed at excellence and impact along convergent and collaborative research themes. The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Boston University (BU) anticipates an opening for a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in the area of Computer Systems. We seek candidates in operating systems, compilers, cybersecurity, or software engineering to build future cloud and edge computing systems for a smart, secure, and connected society. Potential application areas include healthcare, communications, transportation, finance, and scientific computing. Candidates with research programs that transcend the traditional boundaries of ECE may explore affiliated appointments in appropriate departments and divisions, such as Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Systems Engineering, or the newly created Faculty of Computing and Data Sciences. BU ECE attracts exceptional undergraduate and graduate student and faculty talent at all levels. Research activity by primary faculty is approximately $26M per year. The College of Engineering is currently ranked 35th in the nation by US News and World Report, and 15th among private universities. The College is 5th in the nation in total funding from NSF among engineering schools at private universities. BU ECE faculty lead and participate in several high-profile, multidisciplinary research centers, including the Center for Information and Systems Engineering, the Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science and Engineering, the Center for Systems Neuroscience, the Rajen Kilachand Center for Integrated Life Science and Engineering, and the Photonics Center. We are looking for outstanding candidates who have earned or are expected to earn a Ph.D. in the relevant search area before Fall 2023, demonstrate potential for leading an independent and vibrant funded research program in their area of expertise, can teach effectively at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and can utilize their expertise to strengthen collaborative research within the department and beyond.

Organization

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
