The University of Nebraska-Lincoln seeks a collaborative faculty member in cyber systems and related fields. Research areas of interest include: cyber defensive/trustworthy systems, network security, cyber intrusions/detections & forensics, cybersecurity for various embedded systems/infrastructures, and cryptography. This significant investment will increase UNL’s capacity and leadership in one of the major challenges of science and engineering for the future. The impetus for creating this position is to expand the department’s interdisciplinary research portfolio and strengthen collaboration of the department with the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the Nebraska Strategic Research Institute, which is a University Affiliated Research Center supporting the missions of the US Strategic Command at Offutt AFB at Bellevue, Nebraska.

As part of this initiative, the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (http://ece.unl.edu ) invites applications for a tenured faculty position at the Full Professor level that will provide a nucleus for further hiring in this technical area. The successful candidate will contribute to the undergraduate and graduate academic programs within the department and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in both teaching and research.

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering consists of approximately 35 tenure/tenure-track faculty, 400 undergraduate students, and 120 graduate students co-located in two cities, Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska. An outstanding infrastructure exists for conducting research, including central facilities housing state-of-the-art instrumentation and computing, including the Holland Computing Center (hcc.unl.edu). Opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska include the University of Nebraska Medical Center; the University of Nebraska-Omaha College of Information Science & Technology; the Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research; the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior; the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory; the Midwest Roadside Safety Facility; Innovation Campus; and other state- and federally-funded research centers and programs.
