The ECE Department has 57 tenured/tenure-track faculty members, over 950 undergraduate students, 580 Masters graduate students, and 260 doctoral graduate students. It offers BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering (EE) and Computer Engineering (CPE), and MS degrees in Computer Networking and Electric Power Systems Engineering. The department is located in state-of-the-art facilities on NC State’s Centennial Campus.

The University is located in the technology-rich Research Triangle metropolitan area, and ECE faculty members collaborate frequently with local industry. The Research Triangle area is routinely recognized in nationwide surveys as one of the best places to live in the U.S. We enjoy outstanding public schools, affordable housing, and great weather, all in the proximity of the mountains and the seashore.

Director of NC State University Nanofabrication Facility, PowerAmerica Liaison, & Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is seeking exceptional candidates for Director of the North Carolina Nanofabrication Facility (NNF) https://www.nnf.ncsu.edu, beginning in August 2017 or earlier if possible. The NNF with approximately 8000 sq ft of class 100 and 1000 cleanrooms is part of the Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network (RTNN), an innovation hub for transformative nanotechnology research, discovery, education, commercialization, and workforce development.  The RTNN offers unprecedented access to nanotechnology facilities in the Research Triangle area for researchers from across the nation. The RTNN is one of 16 sites in the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Director will also work closely with PowerAmerica: The Next Generation Power Electronics Manufacturing Innovation Institute, to further increase NNF capabilities to accelerate the adoption of wide bandgap semiconductors in power electronics through innovative power electronic device design and fabrication. This includes up to 2 years of research funding to facilitate projects to work with industry and academia in areas connected to SiC and GaN device design/fabrication/packaging. SiC and GaN power device markets are anticipated to grow at 33% per year and PowerAmerica will also support Education and Workforce development efforts with NNF to produce the next generation engineers to support industry. The ECE Department working with PowerAmerica will provide a dynamic environment to pursue fundamental research, teaching and other scholarly efforts.

This position will report administratively to the Dean of the College of Engineering or the Dean’s designee, and must qualify for the rank of tenured full professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering with a strong research interest in advancing semiconductor device technologies.
