Faculty Position in Micro/Nano Device Fabrication and Integration

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Davis invites applications for a faculty position beginning July 2017. The opening targets candidates with outstanding credentials at any faculty rank. Qualified candidates in areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering ( exploiting micro/nano device fabrication and integration technologies will be priority areas of consideration, for instance,including but not limited to optoelectronics, physical electronics, heterogeneous (e.g. photonic,electronic, MEMS/NEMS, bio-electronic, energy conversion) integration, and photonic integrated circuits. We are searching for innovative and collaborative researchers and educators who will contribute in one or more of our department’s strong research areas. Preferences will be given to those who plan to conduct research using the newly renovated nanofabrication lab (Center for Nano and Micro Manufacturing  CNM2). Candidates must have a Ph.D., a research record of high distinction, a demonstrated commitment to teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, a strong commitment to service, and a track record or potential for attracting significant extramural research support.

For full consideration, applicants should apply by January 31, 2017. The positions remain open until filled.

UC Davis is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and is dedicated to recruiting a diverse faculty community. We welcome all qualified applicants to apply, including women,minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans.

UC Davis is actively involved in semiconductor technology such as group IV, III-V, wide bandgap materials and their alloys. The research program includes materials and devices for transistors,memory, optoelectronic logic, optical communication devices, UV sensors, field ionization and field emission devices, low-cost photovoltaic and energy harvesting devices on Si, III-V and other amorphous substrates.  UC Davis has significant collaborative research opportunities in Micro/Nano Device and System Fabrication within the College of Engineering (especially in the ECE, MAE and Biomedical Engineering), as well as with several systems-related institutes and centers across the campus, e.g., UC Davis Energy Institute (, the UC Davis Institute for Transportation Studies (, the California Lighting Technology Center (, the Center for Micro Nano Manufacturing (CNM2, Nanomaterials in the Environment, Agriculture, and Technology (,  and Davis Millimeterwave Research Center (DMRC 

Interested candidates should submit all materials via the web-based, online submission system at Required application materials include a cover letter, CV, research and teaching statements, three sample publications, a statement of contributions to diversity, and names and contact information for three references. If possible, please include six references when applying at the Associate or Full Professor rank. 

UC Davis has been recently ranked as the as the 10th best public university in the United States,and also a top-10 “cool school” due to campus sustainability and climate change efforts. The campus is located in a beautiful natural setting near Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay area which offers abundant opportunities for corporate and academic collaborations.
