Priorities are in: a) engineering applications of information and data science and systems engineering with impact in areas such as quantum information science and sensing, digital health, biological systems, machine learning and intelligence, reinforcement learning, real-time learning, cyberphysical systems, including energy systems, and the internet of things and security, b) computer software and systems with focus on areas such as distributed and cloud computing, operating systems, compilers and software engineering, blockchains and distributed ledgers, and cloud security, c) optics and photonics with impact in disciplines such as quantum optics, solid-state materials and quantum devices, optoelectronic devices, biomedical optics, imaging, and nanophotonics. The BU footprint in these areas is growing significantly. Candidates with research programs that transcend the traditional boundaries of ECE are welcome to explore affiliated appointments in appropriate departments, such as Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, and Mathematics and Statistics.

BU ECE is a rising department and attracts exceptional graduate student and faculty talent at all levels. Research activity by primary faculty is approximately $26M per year.

We are looking for outstanding candidates with a Ph.D. in a relevant area who demonstrate potential for leading an independent and vibrant research program in their area of expertise, teach effectively at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and strengthen collaborative research within the department and beyond.

Boston University is an AAU institution with a rich tradition dedicated to inclusion and social justice. We are proud that we were the first American university to award a PhD to a woman and that Martin Luther King Jr. received his PhD here. We are dedicated to increasing the participation of all talented students and are committed to the pursuit of engineering by underrepresented groups at BU and beyond.
