Ericsson-Harlin D. Mills Chair of Software Engineering
Applications and nominations are invited for the Ericsson-Harlin D. Mills Chair of Software Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK). Associate Professors and recently promoted Full Professors are strongly encouraged to apply, although consideration will be given to all outstanding candidates. Applicants should have demonstrated an outstanding independent research and teaching program in software engineering or in a related software-encompassing field, and should be capable of working with other faculty to further strengthen our existing research. Successful candidates will be expected to teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels, to establish a vigorous funded research program, and to have a willingness to collaborate with other faculty in research. Applicants should have an earned Ph.D. in Computer Science or equivalent and be eligible for appointment at the rank of full Professor.
EECS is housed in a new $37.5 million teaching and research facility completed in 2012. The department currently has an enrollment of over 500 undergraduate and 220 graduate students, with a faculty of 40, and research expenditures that exceed $13 million per year. The department was awarded an NSF Engineering Research Center in 2011 focusing on Wide Area Control of Power Transmission and also houses the Center for Information Technology Research, which is one of nine UTK Centers of Excellence. The College of Engineering is a leading research institution with strong research partnerships with organizations such as the nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The University welcomes and honors people of all races, genders, creeds, cultures, and sexual orientations, and values intellectual curiosity, pursuit of knowledge, and academic freedom and integrity. Interested candidates should apply through the departmental web site and submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, and contact information for three references. Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2013, and continue until the position is filled.
