The College of Engineering at Boston University has embarked on a bold new strategic plan that will pursue excellence and impact along convergent and collaborative research. The College has an opening for a junior, tenure-track faculty member. We seek a candidate with research interests in the area of Photonics and Computing that aim to create enabling device technologies, photonic integrated circuits, and optical neural networks for application in artificial intelligence, computational optics, computer vision, microscopy, robotics and other computing tasks. This faculty member will join a vibrant group of successful researchers in the Boston University Photonics Center exploring how photonics can improve the world. Candidates will likely hold a primary appointment in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department.

The BU College of Engineering believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. The College is a recipient of the Bronze award for ASEE Diversity Recognition Program.

The College of Engineering is ranked 16th among private universities, with all of its individual programs ranked in the top 20. 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.

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.
