The Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Position Openings

C. Tycho Howle Chair in Collaborative Computing Environments:
Applications and nominations are sought for the C. Tycho Howle Chair in Collaborative Computing Environments. The endowed position will be filled by an individual who merits the rank of Professor with tenure and who has an internationally recognized record of outstanding scholarship. Outstanding candidates in all areas of computing will be considered; particularly desirable research areas include high-performance computing, computer vision, networking, cyber security, software/data-enabled science, and ubiquitous computing. The person filling the Chair will hold a faculty position in the Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. A joint appointment with the School of Computing may also be possible. The holder of the Chair is expected to maintain affiliation and close collaboration with computing researchers across the campus, including participation in the Clemson University CyberInstitute.

The CyberInstitute is a multi-disciplinary, university-wide research initiative spanning topics that address or utilize cyber infrastructure. The Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is one of the largest and most active at Clemson, with over 40 faculty members, approximately 540 undergraduates and 180 graduate students. The School of Computing includes more than 40 faculty members, approximately 500 undergraduates and 220 graduate students.  

Clemson University is the land-grant institution for the State of South Carolina enrolling approximately 16,000 undergraduates and 4,200 graduate students. Five interdisciplinary colleges house strong programs in architecture, engineering, science, agriculture, business, social sciences, arts and education. A faculty of 1,400 and staff of 3,000 support 84 undergraduate degree offerings, 73 master’s degree programs and 40 Ph.D. programs. An annual operating budget of approximately $815 million and an endowment of $416 million fund programs and operations. The University’s externally funded research expenditures surpassed $100 million the past two years. Research and economic development activities are enhanced by public-private partnerships at three innovation campuses and six research and education centers located throughout South Carolina.

Today, Clemson University is ranked 21st among national public universities by U.S. News & World Report, and remains true to its roots as a science- and engineering-oriented research university with a strong commitment to teaching and student success. Clemson University is described by students and faculty as an inclusive, student-centered community characterized by high academic standards, a culture of collaboration, school spirit and a competitive drive to excel.

Applicants must have an earned doctorate in computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, or a closely related field. Applicants should submit a current curriculum vitae and a minimum of five references with full contact information. Electronic submissions (PDF files) to ecefacsearch@clemson.edu are preferred, but applications and nominations can also be mailed to ECE Faculty Search, 105 Riggs Hall, Clemson University, Clemson, SC 29634, USA. Application material must be received by January 31, 2014 to receive guaranteed consideration, though the search will remain open until the position is filled.
