Assistant Professor in Computer Engineering at Interamerican University of Puerto Rico (application deadline November 30)

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Interamerican University of Puerto Rico, located on the Bayamón Campus near San Juan, has an opening for a tenure-track faculty position in Computer Engineering at the assistant professor level.  Associate professor appointments may be possible.  Qualifications are a PhD, research and teaching experience, a background in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and proficiency in spoken English or Spanish.  Teaching duties may include both computer engineering and electrical engineering classes.  This position may be especially attractive to an experimentalist or modeler with a recent PhD, experience in working with computer hardware and software, and an interest in undergraduate teaching and in new and innovative teaching strategies.  The start date can be as soon as January 2016. 

Interamerican University is the largest private university in Puerto Rico, with nine campuses, professional programs in optometry and law, and a total student population of about 50,000.  Interamerican's Bayamón campus, with about 5,000 students, is primarily an undergraduate institution.  Recently, however, the Interamerican Department of Mechanical Engineering began an MSME program with an emphasis in aerospace engineering, and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is in the process of starting an MSEE program, with concentrations in sensing of the atmosphere and geospace via radio and radar, passive optics and lidar, and satellites.  Bayamón campus programs also include the Interamerican University School of Aeronautics, located at Isla Grande airport in San Juan.  

The Bayamón campus has active research programs in aerosols in the atmospheric boundary later, ionospheric physics including active radiowave modification of the ionosphere, and in the development of radio instrumentation for atmospheric and space research.  The NSF Arecibo Observatory is a 90-minute drive from campus; the NOAA VIPIR HF radar, located at the USGS San Juan Observatory, is a 60-minute drive; and the Bayamón campus is in the process of building an HF radio research imaging array in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.  The Bayamón campus is also the lead institution in the development and construction of the Puerto Rico CubeSat, which incorporates an ion wave instrument built by NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and an MF/HF radio instrument built by Mälardalen University in Sweden, in collaboration with the Swedish Institute of Space Physics and the Interamerican Bayamón campus.  In addition, the Puerto Rico Photonics Institute is a 50-minute drive from campus, and an optical laboratory is available at the Interamerican School of Optometry, located on the Bayamón campus.  

Applications must include a CV, copies of university transcripts or diplomas, and a completed Interamerican University employment application form.  Also suggested are a one-page cover letter; contact information for three professional references; and a short statement discussing teaching experience, teaching philosophy and goals, and research and professional goals.  

The deadline for receipt of applications is November 30, 2015.  Applications may be received by mail or in person at:
