Assistant Professors in Microwave and Millimeter-wave Systems, Embedded Systems Design, Digital Signal Processing

University of Puerto Rico

United States

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez
Campus and the Center for Advanced Radio Sciences and Engineering (CARSE) are currently searching
for applicants for full-time, tenure-track, Assistant Professor positions in the areas of Microwave and
Millimeter-wave Systems (Position 22-21), Embedded Systems Design (Position 22-22), and Digital Signal
Processing (Position 22-23).

20-21 – Microwave and Millimeter-wave Systems: Special interest will be given to candidates with
experience in microwave and mm-wave systems, circuits, and antennas (including integrated circuit design
and on-chip antenna integration), phased-array systems, electronically scanned arrays and MIMO arrays,
microwave and mm-wave scientific receivers for radio-astronomy and environmental sensing applications,
microwave (analog) signal processing, and spectrum monitoring systems. Additional areas of expertise
include but are not limited to spectral limited microwave and mm-wave transmitters, energy and spectral
efficient microwave and mm-wave power amplifiers, low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) microwave and
mm-wave systems for satellite and uncrewed aerial vehicles, and microwave and mm-wave remote sensing
technologies. The ideal candidate should have expertise in both component level and system-level design
and modeling, with emphasis on spectrum monitoring, remote sensing (passive and active) or
communications applications. The ideal candidate will focus on technologies and approaches that enable
the development of low cost, low SWaP spectrum monitoring and RFI mitigation systems.

20-22 – Embedded Systems Design: Special interest will be given to candidates with experience in
embedded systems design, hardware description languages, rapid systems prototyping, reconfigurable
systems, computer architecture, microprocessors/microcontrollers, real-time embedded software design,
sensor fusion, cyber-physical systems, and information processing, among others. The ideal candidate
should have expertise in both hardware and software design and integration, system-level design &
modeling, and cross-discipline application development. Additional areas of expertise desired in applicants
include but are not limited to smart sensor design, instrumentation, and VLSI Systems. Exceptional
candidates with a background in related areas will also be considered.

20-23 – Digital Signal Processing: Special interest will be given to candidates with experience in
developing DSP algorithms for RF and communication systems. This includes all RF applications/Software
radio systems. The ideal candidate will have both experience designing and implementing the algorithms
in hardware. Desirable additional areas of expertise includes implementations on FPGAs and
VLSI. Exceptional candidates with a background in related areas will also be considered.

The selected candidates will initially fulfill research and teaching obligations for the NSF Center for
Advanced Radio Sciences and Engineering (CARSE) and the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering, respectively. Selected candidates are expected to develop creative research activities pertinent
to CARSE, interact with researchers and students in the Center, advise graduate students, publish research
results in peer-reviewed conferences and journals, attract external research funding, and contribute to
CARSE's Education, Outreach, and Workforce Development, and Innovation and Collaboration
Ecosystem activities. The selected candidates are also expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate
levels or coordinate teaching laboratories in the ECE Department, participate in continuous improvement
and assessment activities of our academic programs, participate in faculty committees, participate in
outreach activities, and support general academic service activities in the Department.

Minimum Requirements:

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, and completion of all
requirements by the date of hire.

Required Application Documents:

1. Cover letter (including announcement number for which you are applying, e-mail, address, and
phone number)
