Dr. Wei Gao will be joining the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh (UPitt) as an Associate Professor in Fall 2017, and is seeking outstanding candidates to fill multiple PhD student positions starting from the Spring 2018 or Fall 2018 semester. Recruited PhD students will receive full financial support during their entire PhD studies.
Dr. Wei Gao is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of EECS, University of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK). He is doing pioneering research in the design, analysis, and implementation of wireless networking, embedded and mobile computing systems, ranging from the existing smartphones and wearable devices to the emerging Virtual Reality and Internet of Things systems. His research also utilizes multiple tools of data mining and deep learning, which allow the embedded and mobile devices to precisely learn human behavior patterns and behave accordingly. His work, therefore, involves many collaborations with industry partners on commercial products and creates various opportunities for students’ internships and full-time jobs after graduation. He is a NSF CAREER Award winner, and has published more than 60 papers at top-tier conferences and journals. More details about Dr. Gao’s research can be found at his current UTK website: http://web.eecs.utk.edu/~weigao (this website will be updated at UPitt this fall).
Applicants of all relevant majors including Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Communication Engineering, Computer Science, etc, are encouraged to apply. Applicants with hands-on skills on building practical systems will be given prioritized consideration. Applicants with strong background in communication theory, signal processing, optimization theory and algorithm design will also be considered. Interested applicants are invited to send their CVs and list of publications (if any) to Dr. Wei Gao at weigao@pitt.edu.
Why pursuing PhD at ECE@UPitt? University of Pittsburgh is one of the best public universities in the U.S., and its PhD programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering is placed in the top 25 among all the U.S. public universities according to the recent USNews ranking. The University of Pittsburgh is known for its world-class School of Medicine and top-level School of Engineering, and also benefits from its close connection with the nearby Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). UPitt students are allowed to take any undergraduate or graduate courses at CMU, and hence will have the chance to learn from the world-class researchers in computer science and information systems. The city of Pittsburgh has been constantly evaluated as the safest and most livable city among all the U.S. big cities, and hence hosts a large number of Hi-Tech companies including Google, Uber, Apple, Facebook, IBM, etc. The city, as a result, provides abundant internship and job opportunities for students, along with the big city’s convenience and large collections of cultural activities.
