The Department of Electrical, Computer, Software, and Systems Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida has an ambitious agenda for the coming years focused on expanding graduate programs, research capabilities, facilities, and recruiting highly talented faculty. An exciting plan for a new state-of-the-art engineering building housing research laboratories, including new labs for radar, sensors, and unmanned systems, has been approved and will be completed by spring of 2017 in support of this agenda.
The department currently invites applicants for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level starting in January or August 2017. The successful candidate will support the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and other department programs, and will excel at teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. Applicants are expected to bring or develop a strong externally funded research program that supports department research areas, particularly sense & avoid for unmanned systems, including communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS), digital avionics, radar, and remote sensing. Applicants of other rank and with other research interests are also invited to apply.
In addition to the Ph.D., the department offers master's degrees in electrical and computer engineering, cybersecurity engineering, software engineering, and systems engineering, and bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, software engineering, and computer science; we also are responsible for the COE's cross-disciplinary Master of Science in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering degree. Our programs are known for being hands-on and project-based leading students to develop the technical talents and professional practices that enable success in aerospace, aviation, and related industries. ERAU is one of the core members of ASSURE, the consortium of universities forming the FAA Center of Excellence in Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Significant research opportunities exist for new faculty at our NEAR (Next-generation ERAU Advanced Research) Lab, a premiere center for modeling and simulation, and at the Eagle Flight Research Center, a leader in flight control systems, flight simulation, and UAS, and green technologies for aviation.
Applicants should have an earned doctorate in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or a closely related discipline. Practical experience as an electrical engineer or computer engineer in aerospace, aviation, defense, or related industries is valued. All candidates must meet U.S. right-to-work requirements, demonstrate excellent communication skills, and share the university's commitment towards a diverse community focused on graduates' professional success. Individuals from populations traditionally underrepresented in engineering and engineering education are strongly encouraged to apply.
