Open Rank Faculty Search in Carbon-based Electronics and Photonics

As part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, the NC State Carbon Electronics Cluster seeks nominations for tenured/tenure-track Professors in all areas of Carbon-Based Electronic materials and devices including Electronics, Photonics and Sensing Materials and Devices. We seek an innovative and transformative academic leader whose scholarship will advance NC State’s position as one of the premier universities of its kind. Exceptional candidates of all ranks will be considered.

The Carbon Electronics Cluster is a part of the NC State University Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program. Carbon and carbon hybrid electronics offer new avenues to solve some of the most important grand challenges of the 21st century. The Cluster core faculty consists of faculty members from Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The research within the cluster is highly collaborative.

Our vision is to expand our leadership in Carbon Electronics for the next 10 years and beyond, and we are looking for new faculty in synergy with the existing NC State faculty. We envision interrelated fundamental and applied research that provide revolutionary computing approaches, renewable power sources, advanced energy storage, and novel device capabilities in areas of photonics, bioelectronics, computing, and sensing. Many of these can be integrated into truly self-sustaining systems such as self-powered autonomous greenhouses, next generation integrated photonics, and self-powered intelligent health monitors.

About NC State University

NC State was founded with a purpose: to create economic, societal and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina and the country. We began as a land-grant institution teaching the agricultural and mechanical arts. Today, we’re a pre-eminent research enterprise that excels in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities and social sciences, textiles and veterinary medicine.

NC State students, faculty and staff take problems in hand and work with industry, government and nonprofit partners to solve them. Our 34,000-plus high-performing students apply what they learn in the real world by conducting research, working in internships and co-ops, and performing acts of world-changing service. That experiential education ensures they leave here ready to lead the workforce, confident in the knowledge that NC State consistently rates as one of the best values in higher education.

Each year, NC State adds $6.5 billion to the statewide economy, equivalent to creating more than 90,000 new jobs. That represents significant return on investment for the citizens of North Carolina in the form of research advances, innovative technologies, successful companies, skilled graduates and new jobs waiting for them.

Our 9,000 faculty and staff are world leaders in their fields, bridging the divides between academic disciplines and training high-caliber students to meet tomorrow’s challenges. Together, they forge powerful partnerships with government, industry, nonprofits and academia to remake our world for the better.

NC State is leading efforts to curb nuclear proliferation, develop a smart electric grid, create self-powered health monitors, help farmers confront climate change and build a new American manufacturing sector. Our award- winning Centennial Campus is home to more than 70 public and private partners — as well as the innovative Hunt Library, which Time magazine has dubbed “the library of the future.”
