Assistant Teaching Professor- Machine Learning and Signal Processing

The ECE Department at the UW-Madison has a long tradition of excellence in educating, mentoring, and inspiring future leaders; conducting research that is of vital importance to society; and serving Wisconsin, our nation, and the world through professional pursuits.  As part of our five-year strategic plan to build on that tradition, we are investing in and expanding educational opportunities in the broad area of machine learning and signal processing, including named options for our B.S. degrees, online offerings, an industry-focused professional M.S. degree, and certificates.  To support this growth, we are seeking candidates for an assistant teaching professor position with expertise in machine learning and signal processing.

The Teaching Professor is a non-tenure-track, career appointment that enables and recognizes a concentrated excellence in instruction. The individual in this position will contribute to our educational mission at the undergraduate and graduate levels through their instructional leadership, teaching excellence, and educational innovation.  The position emphasizes support of degree (primarily B.S. and M.S.) and non-degree programs that prepare our students to meet the technological demands of our rapidly changing world.  Teaching professor appointments are 9-month (academic-year), with the opportunity to earn additional salary for teaching during our summer sessions.

The ECE Department currently enrolls approximately 300 graduate students and 900 undergraduate students.  Our undergraduate and graduate programs are all ranked in the top 10 among all public institutions in the U.S.  A number of our ECE faculty and instructional staff have received college, campus, and national awards for excellence in teaching, as well as teaching innovation.

The Department’s strategic priorities include increasing and embracing diversity, and cultivating a thriving and inclusive community that is welcoming, supportive and respectful.  The Department is committed to having a diverse faculty, staff, and student body.  Candidates from traditionally under-represented groups in engineering are strongly encouraged to apply.
