Faculty Openings in Electrical Engineering

All applications should be submitted via our online submission web site at

The Electrical Engineering Department in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is accepting applications for tenure-track faculty positions. Our primary focus is on tenure-track assistant professors, but distinguished senior-level applicants will also be considered. Applicants should have a PhD, in a related discipline with a strong commitment both to research and teaching and an outstanding record of research. The faculty has access to numerous state-of-the-art research centers, which foster interdisciplinary basic research and collaborations with industry. Successful candidates will be expected to develop an independent and creative research program, participate in both undergraduate and graduate teaching, and supervise PhD students. Salary is commensurate with education and experience.

The department is especially interested in candidates in areas such as novel circuits and computing systems rooted in emerging post-silicon devices, with technological, software, and algorithmic advances; control of cyber-physical systems including new applications in health, energy, robotics, transportation, analytics, networked control, etc.; and image processing as applied to medical or large-scale data applications. However, outstanding candidates in any area of electrical engineering will be considered.

To help with the evaluation, we would like the candidate to indicate up to two (2) of the interest/expertise areas below. Please indicate all of the relevant areas of interest/expertise both in the cover letter as well as by visiting and filling out this information.

  • Embedded Systems & Computer Engineering
  • Analog, Digital, and Mixed-Signal Circuits
  • Cyber-Physical Systems & networked control with applications
  • Image Processing & Applications and Data Science
  • Electromagnetics and Microwave/millimeter-wave
  • Nanoelectronics, MEMS & Devices
  • Photonics: Material, Devices, Signal Processing, Imaging
  • Communications & Networking
  • Control & Signal Processing
  • Information / Computation / Optimization Theory

UCLA is an Equal Opportunity Employer and follows federal guidelines, inviting applicants of different races, genders, disabilities, and veteran status. All applications should be submitted via our online submission web site at
