Gallogly College of Engineering

Assistant Professors of Engineering Pathways

The Gallogly College of Engineering is rapidly growing with a strategic focus on increasing the number of engineering graduates and increasing our research portfolio. Our plan for student body growth is built around new programs that support and educate our student body in meaningful ways to recognize and encourage new ways of thinking, understanding and experiencing. We have recently launched a new Engineering Pathways Program and are seeking 3 additional teaching-focused faculty members who are passionate about teaching and mentoring students. These faculty will be instrumental in designing and implementing our student-centered plan for growth and will be working collaboratively with each other, with our Gallogly Student Affairs Team, and with faculty and staff across the college.


School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Assistant Professor of Trustable Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Gallogly College of Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and/or Department of Computer Science, is seeking an Assistant Professor in Trustable AI. Human-guided, science-based, explainable AI (xAI) are key areas to ensure AI is understandable, reliable, and robust for real-world applications. This faculty member will grow our expertise in one of the most rapidly developing and vital fields of data science, with a primary home in ECE and potentially joint appointments in CS, Psychology, and ISE. We seek a faculty member with expertise in one or more of science-based AI or machine learning (ML), human-guided AI/ML, explainable AI/ML, and closely related topics.  This faculty member will be a vital core team member in data science, AI, and data-driven convergent research solutions to global challenges. This faculty member will provide vital capabilities that will empower research in all four strategic verticals and grow the data science ecosystem on campus to create the critical mass in data science needed for the success of the university’s strategic plan, Lead On, University.


Assistant Professor in AI Architectures

We seek to recruit a transdisciplinary faculty member with expertise in one or more of the following areas: scalable, high-performance software and hardware architectures for AI and advanced analytics, advanced and domain-tailored data science, AI (trustable, science-based, and human-guided), and human-computer teaming. Specific areas of interest include probabilistic, neuromorphic, and novel architectures, software pipelines and operating system architectures to support high-performance analytics, and enable real-time trustable AI and decision-making.  Since traditional computing architectures are still based on solving problems from the 20th century, new computing hardware and software architectures are needed to optimize computing for AI and machine learning and many new approaches to science and engineering.
