Faculty Position in Computer Engineering

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Florida A&M University - Florida State University College of Engineering

Permanent, Tenure-Track Position


The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Florida A&M University (FAMU)- Florida State University (FSU) College of Engineering invites applications from highly qualified individuals for a tenure-track faculty position in Computer Engineering in Tallahassee, Florida. We are seeking faculty candidates for an assistant professor position, however, exceptional candidates at higher ranks will be considered.

The ECE Department currently has 30 faculty, 100+ graduate students, ~400 undergraduate students, and annual research expenditures exceeding $5M. The two universities and outstanding research facilities in local research buildings/centers provide opportunities for collaboration with faculty in Computer Science and Scientific Computing, the Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS), FAMU Center for Cyber Security, National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), Center for Intelligent Systems, Control and Robotics (CISCOR), FSU Institute of Molecular Biophysics, FSU Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship, and FSU College of Medicine.

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is the nexus of two major public universities, each with a distinct mission but focused on world-class engineering education and research. Created by the Florida Legislature in 1982, the joint institution is the college of engineering for both Florida A&M and Florida State universities. This unique combination of focus, resources and mission from our parent institutions has created on our campus a truly innovative atmosphere that leverages the benefits of the traditional HBCU model with the innovations of an R-1 public research university. After completing pre-requisites at their home institution, FAMU and FSU students learn, study and research together at our independent campus with joint-appointed faculty and staff. Students graduate from their enrolling university and from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. Both FAMU and FSU are part of the State University System of Florida and are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Additionally, the college is fully accredited by ABET for its 12 degree areas across five engineering departments.



Candidates must possess an earned Ph.D. in computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, or a related discipline, and demonstrate documented potential for outstanding research. Areas of particular interest include Cyber Security, Computer Architecture, Embedded Systems, Digital Systems, Computer Networks, and Artificial Intelligence. Successful candidates are expected to develop research programs that are internationally recognized with significant and sustained funding, incorporate interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers across campus, and demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in education. Teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and supervising undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral researchers are expected. In addition, the successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the barriers preventing full participation of members from historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities in higher education.
