Department to hire 10 new faculty members

Due to continued growth in education and research, the Department is seeking 10 new tenured or tenure-track faculty members at all levels.

"The University is investing substantial new resources in the Department in recognition of our outstanding academic and research accomplishments," said Department Head Leonard Ferrari. "This expansion corresponds with the growth of a multi-billion-dollar microelectronics industry in Virginia and reflects the University's commitment to a major expansion of its programs in information systems," he said.

"The new faculty will have outstanding opportunities to develop highly visible research programs, and all candidates will be expected to conduct research and teach both undergraduate and graduate courses," he said.

Areas of expertise being sought are: imaging, microelectronics, multimedia systems, networks, optical fiber devices, power electronics, software systems/circuit design methods and tools, visualization and wireless communications. Applicants must have an earned doctorate in electrical or computer engineering or a closely related field.

The Department has research expenditures exceeding $9 million annually, and an endowment in excess of $10 million. A top priority of the endowment is the support of outstanding graduate students. The Department currently enrolls about 1,000 undergraduate and 300 graduate students.

For more information, please contact Warren Stutzman, Chair, Resource Committee, The Bradley Department of Electrical Engineering. Applications will be accepted until March 15, 1997.
