Applications are invited for two Lecturing positions in Electrical & Electronic Engineering at University of Galway, with particular expertise in one or more of the following areas: • Post 1 (Permanent) Electrical engineering, analogue/digital control systems, dynamic systems, circuit design. • Post 2 (Specific Purpose Contract circa 3 years) Robotics, advanced sensing, artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, adaptive systems. • Applicants will be considered for both posts unless they specifically state that they wish to be considered for one post only.

There are many exciting opportunities for fundamental research and technological innovation to support increasing levels of automation in industry, medical applications, transport, particularly in the context of the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, while also being cognisant of the sustainability of these technologies. The new appointees will be required to make significant contributions to programmes in Electrical, Electronic & Computer Engineering, Intelligent Robotics and Medical Electronics. The appointee will be expected to contribute strongly to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, student project supervision, and administration activities in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, the School of Engineering, and the broader College of Science and Engineering. Primary teaching responsibilities may be in the areas of control systems, robotics, and medical electronics, though may be in other areas depending on the needs of the school and the expertise of the appointee. Of particular importance will be the ongoing development and delivery of postgraduate taught programmes, including the marketing, management and delivery of new programmes and modules in Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering, Intelligent robotics and Medical Electronics & Digital Health.

The appointees will be expected to work with colleagues across the relevant academic disciplines and research institutes of the university and contribute to the excellent research capacity in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, which has active clusters in Power Electronics, Medical Electronics, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, Computational Imaging, Embedded Systems, Visual Media Enhancement Bio-Inspired Electronics and Communications (Research at EEE). Successful candidates will be expected to apply for major funding awards, for example from Science Foundation Ireland, the European Research Council and Horizon Europe, and will develop national and international collaborations with academia and industry. The new appointees will be expected to disseminate their work through high quality peer-reviewed journals, high-impact conferences, and workshops.

The successful candidates shall possess: • A primary degree and PhD in Electrical/Electronic/Computer Engineering, Mechatronics, or a closely related discipline; • Experience in third level teaching/teaching support/student supervision; • An appropriate portfolio of peer-reviewed journal publications, and the capacity to develop a strong research programme in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. • An ability and commitment to conduct programme administration and management in a public service university environment. • Excellent communication and teamwork skills, and an ability and commitment to develop collaborative relationships with other academic staff in the pursuit of teaching and research objectives in electrical, electronic and computer engineering; • A strong commitment to working with the Engineering (and closely related) industry, particularly in terms of collaborative research.
