Assistant Professor - Microwave and Applied electromagnetics - Colorado School of Mines

While the ad does not mention quantum information science, the EE department chair confirmed potential candidates who research microwave engineering for quantum technologies (such as superconducting qubits) would be very welcome to apply. EE is a contributing department to the interdisciplinary Quantum Engineering program ( and candidates could collaborate with other faculty across campus and at nearby national labs (NIST Boulder and NREL are both very close by).

Colorado School of Mines (Mines) invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level with experience in the following areas:

Position 1: Microwave theory with emphasis on design, and metrology of active components, circuits and systems, multiphysics design and optimization of microwave semiconductor devices and power amplifiers including discrete, monolithic, and hybridized integration technologies.

Position 2:  Applied electromagnetics with emphasis on wireless communications, Radar, antennas and measurement techniques.

Mines is a great place to engage in education and research in each of these areas as they relate to our Earth, Energy, and Environment mission. We seek candidates excited to share our mission. Successful applicants will be able to collaborate through joint appointments, joint projects, shared students, etc. with the nearby National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), based in Golden, Colorado and the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder Colorado, only 20 miles away from Mines.  Collaboration with other national laboratories and industries is also encouraged.

The anticipated start date for this position is August 2023.

Develop and deliver course materials to undergraduate and graduate students in traditional, hybrid, and/or online formats, demonstrating teaching excellence.
Supervise and mentor undergraduate and graduate students.
Develop a strong externally funded research program focused on leading-edge topics.
Establish and maintain an internationally recognized reputation for scholarship with a correspondingly impactful record of publications and invited talks.
Contribute to both institutional and external professional service.
Cultivate and promote an accessible, inclusive, and diverse Mines community through recruiting, mentorship, and service.
Collaborate across campus and contribute to breakthroughs in the area of applications of your research
