Position Openings

The Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clemson University is seeking applicants for one computer engineering tenure-track or tenured faculty position. The opening targets candidates with outstanding credentials at all ranks and the position commences in July 2021. The Department has a particular interest in applicants in areas of specialization that will contribute to the university’s strategic, cross-disciplinary effort in high-impact research in systems and applications driven by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Transformative AI/ML systems and applications call for novel solutions that span perception of the physical world, processing of diverse genres of data, making decisions, controlling physical devices and systems, and interacting with human and society. Tackling the broad scope of challenges require extensive multi-disciplinary collaboration.

Successful candidates will demonstrate experiences in driving high-impact interdisciplinary research in AI/ML systems and applications. Potential topic focus may include, but are not limited to: (1) machine learning, computer vision, artificial intelligence, signal processing, with collaborations in data-intensive sciences, biomedical engineering, health sciences, or automotive engineering; (2) embedded computing, sensors, wearables; (3) robotics and autonomy; (4) high-performance computing with an emphasis on big data, high-performance networking, or accelerated computing architectures; (5) cyber security and cyber-physical system security; and (6) distributed systems, edge computing, operating systems and distributed computation workflows. Applicants must have an earned doctorate in computer engineering, electrical engineering, or a closely related field.

Application Instructions
Applicants should submit a current curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching strategy, and a minimum of five references with full contact information. Application material should be submitted electronically at the following Web link:

To ensure full consideration, applicants must apply by April 1, 2021; however, the search will remain open until the position is filled.
