The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor. We seek an early tenure-track career faculty member with specialty in power systems and sub-specialty in either power electronics or electric drives, starting fall semester 2020.

 The position will teach graduate and undergraduate courses in the areas of power systems, power electronics, and electric drives. Specific courses include ECE3910: Power Systems I, ECE4910, Power Systems II, and ECE4955/5955: Power Electronics. The position will also introduce new courses (e.g., electric machines, power system protective relaying, utility scale battery energy storage systems) depending on curriculum requirements.

 The successful candidate will possess a solid publication record and demonstrate potential for attracting external research funding, as well as the ability to interface their research with the department’s existing strengths in microelectronic circuits, VLSI design, computers, communications/signal processing, and controls. The department is interested in candidates with a strong commitment to pursuing externally funded research and teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels.

 The 9-month salary range for this position is $86,000-93,000 (USD, firm), depending on qualifications.

 UCCS offers a comprehensive benefits package. Information on benefits programs is located at:

 The ECE Department at UCCS is relatively small in size; thus all tenure-track faculty in the department are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate classes while simultaneously developing an individual program of research. Considerable flexibility exists in the choice of research focus so long as areas align with Department strengths. The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCCS offers degrees at the bachelors, masters, and doctoral levels. The Microelectronics Research Laboratory (MRL) of the ECE Department has a well-equipped 4000 sq. ft. class-100 clean room, with device processing and characterization facilities. The Microwave Measurements Laboratory is able to test EMI from high-power circuits. The High-Capacity Battery Research Laboratory has facilities to test and characterize cells, modules, and battery packs for hybrid and electric vehicles. The undergraduate communications laboratory has recently been upgraded with new 6.5 GHz FieldFox spectrum/network analyzers and waveform generators to augment the wideband digital oscilloscopes.

Special Instructions to Applicants: Full consideration will be given to completed applications received by December 31, 2019. Applications submitted through email or surface mail will not be considered. Official transcripts will be required upon hire.

Apply Here:


-A Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering or a closely related field; conferred by date of appointment, 8/17/2020.

-Specific expertise in power systems and either power electronics or electric drives. Expertise obtained during graduate studies will also be considered.

-Four months of teaching experience in an academic setting as a teaching assistant, instructor of record or the equivalent.
