As a land grant institution committed to teaching, research, outreach and engagement, Oregon State promotes economic, social, cultural, and environmental progress for the people of Oregon, the nation, and the world. In support of this mission, the College of Engineering recently updated its strategic plan to advance high-impact research; ensure excellent student learning; and develop a community that is inclusive, collaborative, diverse, and centered on student success.

Corvallis has been ranked #1 on a list of “Best Places for Work-Life Balance,” and is within easy reach of Portland, Eugene, the Cascade mountain range, and the Oregon Coast. Oregon State's strong institutional commitment to diversity and multiculturalism provides a welcoming atmosphere with unique professional opportunities for leaders from underrepresented groups. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who share our vision of an inclusive community. The College of Engineering ranks high nationally in terms of the percentage of women faculty, and the university actively supports dual-career opportunities.

Current openings

Multiple Faculty Positions in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University invites applications for several full-time, nine-month, tenure-track and tenured faculty positions at all levels. We seek faculty candidates in software engineering, artificial intelligence, and security/systems. These positions are part of a university-wide initiative to support team-based interdisciplinary research and education.

The initiative includes a planned 150,000 square-foot Jen-Hsun and Lori Huang Collaborative Innovation Complex as well as over $200 million in planned public and private investments in facilities, equipment, faculty hiring and programs. The complex will harness one of the nation’s most powerful supercomputers designed to solve the world’s most challenging computational problems, a state-of-the-art clean room and other specialized research facilities purposely designed to facilitate team-based research. Through this effort, engineering faculty will participate in nationally-ranked programs in ocean, earth and climate science to help propel Oregon State’s mission to pursue groundbreaking solutions for the betterment of humanity, the environment and the economy.

Oregon State University is located at the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley and close to Portland’s Silicon Forest, with numerous collaboration opportunities. The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science has 66 tenured/tenure-track faculty members and 490 graduate students (212 Ph.D. students). Among the faculty, we have two National Academy of Engineering members, 23 professional society (IEEE and ACM) Fellows, and 27 Young Investigator/CAREER Award recipients. Among our several areas of distinction is a widely-recognized program in usability engineering aimed at eliminating gender bias in software and promoting inclusive technology. We launched new Master and Ph.D. degrees in Artificial Intelligence in the fall of 2021. Many faculty members of the School of EECS are also active participants in the recently established Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute and the Pervasive Personalized Intelligence Center. The School of EECS boasts of a highly-ranked online postbacc program in computer science which has become a national model and has recently started the online BS, MEng and MS programs in computer science.Applicants should demonstrate a strong commitment and capacity to initiate newly funded research and expand and complement existing research programs in the OSU College of Engineering and beyond. Furthermore, applicants should demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. Applicants are expected to mentor students and promote equitable outcomes among learners of diverse and underrepresented identity groups. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in computer science, electrical and computer engineering, or a closely-related discipline.

Apply online at https://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/127562 (Posting #P06174UF) with the following documents: A letter of interest; vita; a two-page statement of research interests; a one-page statement of teaching interests; a one-page statement on the candidate’s experiences with and future plans toward equity and inclusion; and names and contact information of at least three references. For full consideration, apply by December 15, 2022. Additional screening will continue until all positions are filled or until the posting closing date of June 30, 2023, whichever comes first.

Multiple Faculty Positions in Electrical Engineering

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions in energy systems, packaging and integration, and materials and devices. These positions are part of a university-wide initiative to strengthen and support the university’s vision of leading world-class, team-based, interdisciplinary research and education.

The initiative includes a planned 150,000 square-foot Jen-Hsun and Lori Huang Collaborative Innovation Complex as well as over $200 million in planned public and private investments in facilities, equipment, faculty hiring and programs. The complex will harness one of the nation’s most powerful supercomputers designed to solve the world’s most challenging computational problems, a state-of-the-art clean room and other specialized research facilities purposely designed to facilitate team-based research. Through this effort, engineering faculty will participate in nationally-ranked programs in ocean, earth and climate science to help propel Oregon State’s mission to pursue groundbreaking solutions for the betterment of humanity, the environment and the economy.

The appointments will be at the rank of assistant professor, but exceptionally qualified candidates may be considered for associate or full professorship. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or an equivalent degree in electrical and computer engineering or a closely related discipline by the expected start date of Fall 2023.

Successful applicants will demonstrate capability for building a robust research program that complements existing expertise in the School of EECS and enhances the scope for collaborative and multidisciplinary projects with the Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems Institute; the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences; the Hatfield Marine Science Center; and the Oregon Health and Science University, among other organizations. Successful applicants will also demonstrate a passion for and excellence in teaching and mentoring, with a strong commitment to promoting inclusion and equity for learners from diverse groups. The applicants are expected to be able to teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses in electrical and computer engineering in different modalities as required.

Students and faculty members have access to extensive shared-use equipment for the fabrication and characterization of electronic materials and devices in the Materials Synthesis and Characterization facility, for characterization and testing of IC prototypes in the Analog and Mixed Signals and Systems Lab, and for high power testing in The Wallace Energy Systems and Renewables Facility. Additionally, the new $200 million Collaborative Innovation Complex at Oregon State University will provide rich resources to support innovation and entrepreneurship. The complex will harness one of the nation’s most powerful supercomputer designed to solve the world’s most challenging computational problems, a purpose built clean room, and other specialized research facilities purposely designed to facilitate team-based research. The CIC will further increase opportunities for collaboration with industry partners in Oregon’s silicon forest and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Applications may be submitted online at https://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/127469 (posting #P06168UF) with the following six documents: letter of interest; vita; two-page statement of research interests; one-page statement of teaching interests; one-page statement on the candidate’s experiences with and plans to support equity and inclusion; and names and contact information of at least three references.
