Job Description

The School of Engineering at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) seeks a senior person for an Endowed Professor of Computer Engineering (Tenured, 9-month position) to begin in Fall 2022. General duties include teaching of undergraduate and future graduate courses, building an independent research program, and serving on departmental, university, and professional committees. Reduced teaching loads are provided. Generally, tenured faculty teach 2-3 classes per semester although course buyouts are available through internal processes that demonstrate a productive research agenda. The undergraduate Computer Engineering program was launched in Spring 2021 and currently has an enrollment of 125 students.

Required Qualifications:

Successful candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering or a closely related discipline and qualify for appointment as Associate or Full Professor. While all specializations will be considered, candidates who can collaborate with current engineering faculty on research are encouraged to apply, especially in the fields of Data Communication and Networking, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, Graphics and Visualization, Quantum Computing, Smart Infrastructures, Signal Processing, and Internet of Things. Candidates must demonstrate a track-record of sustained peer-reviewed publications and scholarship with an ability to receive external grant funding. As an Endowed Professor, the candidates are expected to use their expertise to bolster collaborative research within the School of Engineering and beyond, and mentor junior computer engineering faculty members in the School of Engineering. Moreover, candidates must have the ability to teach effectively at the undergraduate level and educate and advise students as they work on their Senior Design projects. Candidates must also perform service at the School, College, University, and the professional community-at-large levels. Prior experience in ABET accreditation is preferred.

Access to Linux clusters and PC nodes dedicated for computational-based research is available at TAMIU for STEM faculty. TAMIU provides generous start-up packages to support new faculty in the acquisition of research equipment and establishment of laboratories.

TAMIU is a growing university of over 8,000 students located in Laredo, Texas, a vibrant bi-lingual, bi-cultural city with a population of about 260,000 on the U.S./Mexico border. For more information, visit www. tamiu.edu. TAMIU offers competitive salaries (commensurate with experience and rank) and a benefits package covering health insurance, retirement benefits, and paid parental leave. Financial support for professional development opportunities, such as attending academic conferences, is also provided. Moving expenses are covered by the university. In addition to Computer Engineering, the School of Engineering offers two other undergraduate programs in Systems Engineering and Petroleum Engineering. There is also a Pre-Engineering program that is a bridge for transfer to other institutions.

The completed employment application must include: (1) a letter of interest that addresses the candidate's interest in the position, including their teaching interests and experience, their research experience, plans, and professional goals, and their service record; (2) Curriculum vitae; (3) Academic transcripts; (4) the names and contact information of three professional references.

Applications must be submitted online at https: // www. tamiu.edu/adminis/ohr/employment/.

Initial review of applications will begin on October 11, 2021. The application will remain open until the position is filled.

You will not be able to make changes or add additional documents once you “Submit” the application materials. The software does not allow you to “Save” your application and return to complete the process at a later time. The page "My Experience " has an area provided under Resume/CV to drop or upload files.
