Position description

The Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of Assistant Adjunct Professors, Associate Adjunct Professors, and Adjunct Professors. Adjunct faculty are expected to engage in research or other creative activity, teaching, and university and public service. Appointments in this series may be assigned to academic scholars currently affiliated with other universities, or to qualified individuals who are professional practitioners of appropriate distinction when such an affiliation supports the academic and professional endeavors of the department. These appointments forge closer relations between the university and other academic institutions or industry, are frequently self-funded, and involve a limited length of service.

Current areas of excellence and research foci within Electronic and Computer Engineering are the following: Electronic Circuits and Energy Systems, Photonics and Electronic Devices, Robotics, Controls, and Cyber-Physical Systems, Signals, Image Processing, and Communications.

UC Santa Cruz is the University of California campus nearest to Silicon Valley and maintains close ties with local industry in the fields of electronic and computer engineering. Academically qualified research or other creative personnel who contribute significantly to teaching either in formal courses or in guidance of graduate students in one or more of the areas listed above are encouraged to apply. The campus is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to diversity of scholarly activity and add additional dimension to the Baskin School of Engineering by complementing or augmenting our existing research strengths.
