The School of Informatics, Computing and Cyber Systems (SICCS) is a new and rapidly-growing academic unit at Northern Arizona University that brings together expertise in computer science, electrical engineering, eco/environmental informatics, and bio/health informatics. Our core mission is to integrate rapidly-developing scientific knowledge around computation, data, and systems with traditional science and engineering disciplines to drive breakthroughs that address key 21st-century challenges. Our faculty will help shape the School’s ground-breaking research programs and the development of its innovative academic programs.




We are seeking exceptional candidates in all areas of Electrical Engineering who merge fundamental theory, concepts and approaches with interdisciplinary domain knowledge to address key societal challenges. We are especially interested in candidates in the following areas:


  • Microelectronics and nanotechnology, including emerging technologies in high-speed/low-power digital logic and memory, with applications to cybersecurity;

  • Digital design, including modern processor microarchitectures for diverse applications such as IoT and machine learning;

  • RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave engineering, with application to communication and radar systems, intelligent/next-generation wireless networks, and network metrology.




Candidates should have a Ph.D. or Sc.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, or a field closely related to the above research areas at the time of appointment. Candidates should demonstrate the potential for high-quality scholarship and the development of an independent, externally funded research program as well as the development of research opportunities for undergraduate students. We especially welcome candidates who are interested in developing programs that support research experiences for international undergraduate students, including EE seniors participating in our 3+1 degree program in collaboration with Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications. Successful candidates will also participate in the continuous improvement of our undergraduate and graduate curricula.




Minimum qualifications: Earned doctoral degree (Ph.D. or Sc.D.) conferred in Electrical Engineering or closely related field by August 21, 2017.




Preferred qualifications include: Demonstrated expertise in the areas described above; strong record of scholarly productivity and promise for future excellence, as evidenced by scholarly publications; established record of an independently-funded research program and promise for future excellence, as evidenced by participation and leadership in securing extramural funding; demonstrated interest in engaging with and leading collaborative multi- and inter-disciplinary teams; university-level teaching and mentorship experience, particularly at the graduate level; excellent communication skills; experience effectively working with people from a variety of culturally diverse backgrounds.
