The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for faculty positions in all areas and at all levels in bioinformatics, computational and systems biology, bioimaging, and bioelectronics, and biophotonics broadly defined, with particular emphasis on genomic, proteomic and metabolic data analytics and emerging data acquisition, sensing and computing technologies. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to complex analysis and decision science for biological data processing; new DNA sequencing techniques, genome rearrangement problems and variant calling; machine learning approaches to biological problems including biomedical imaging and gene regulatory, metabolic and protein-protein interaction networks modeling and inference; disease diagnostics; cell/tissue analysis; iomolecule-semiconductor interaction, detection by nano-electronic membranes; multi-scale biological systems modeling; biological data visualization and compression; biomedical imaging including MRI and other modalities; and computing systems for computational biology from hardware to software algorithms. Qualified senior candidates may also be considered for tenured Full Professor positions as part of the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative (graingerinitiative.engineering.illinois.edu), which is backed by a $100-million gift from the Grainger Foundation. The ECE Department also supports and encourages faculty involvement with the Nation's first engineering-based College of Medicine that is opening on campus in the fall of 2018. The plans are to facilitate transition from engineering breakthroughs into translational medical practices. ECE ILLINOIS is in a period of intense demand and growth, serving over 3000 students and averaging 7 new tenure-track faculty hires per year in recent years. It is housed in its new 235,000 sq. ft. net-zero energy design building, which is a major campus addition with maximum space and minimal carbon footprint.
