In September 2021, Prof. Weisheng Zhao with Beihang University was re-elected as the Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers (TCAS-I) for a new term of 2 years from January 2022 to December 2023. IEEE TCAS-I is the flagship journal of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, covering areas related to integrated circuits and systems. Its IF (impact factor) in 2020 is 3.61. The editorial board brings together 61 outstanding researchers and experts in the field of integrated circuits and systems from 20 countries and 59 institutions worldwide. Among them are 6 members from the industry, 6 female professionals and 7 IEEE fellows.

Prof. Zhao is currently the Dean of the School of Integrated Circuit Science and Engineering, Beihang University, Beijing, China; a standing member of the 10th Committee of the Chinese Association for Science and Technology; Director of the Key Laboratory of Spintronics, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology; and Changjiang Scholars. Prof. Zhao received a Ph.D. degree from the University of Paris-Sud, Orsay, France, in 2007. He was nominated as a tenured Research Scientist at CNRS, France, in 2009 and served as a adjunct professor at the University of Paris-Sud. In 2013, he joined Beihang University, Beijing, China. In the past five years, he has published more than 200 articles in prestigious journals, including Proceedings of the IEEE and Nature Electronics, among which 7 are ESI highly cited papers. According to Google Scholar, his work has been cited >12,000 times, with an H-index of 60. Prof. Zhao has given more than 70 invited talks at international conferences. He has served as a member of the jury of the Outstanding Research Scholars Program (ERC) since 2018, General Chair of IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures (2016), and ACM Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (2018-2020).

  •  Circuits and Systems for Communications
  •  Control Theory Topics in Circuits and Systems
  •  Digital Circuits and Systems and VLSI
  •  Nonlinear Circuits and Systems
  •  Power Systems and Electronic Circuits
  •  Signal Processing


1)  Candidates should have a minimum of three papers published in TCAS-1.

2)  Preference is given to candidates with a doctoral degree and two years of working experience in circuits and systems after graduation.

3)  We expect candidates to have permanent positions in industrial companies or research institutions/universities. Female researchers are welcomed.

4)  This position demands a certain amount of time, so candidates should be able to devote the necessary time.

Role and responsibilities

1)  TCAS-1 Associate Editors will typically serve for a two-year term. The position is voluntary.

2)  The Associate Editor is primarily responsible for assessing manuscripts for their suitability for peer review, selecting suitable reviewers who meet the journal’s requirements, and recommending decisions on the basis of the peer reviewers’ reports and their own assessment while complying with the journal’s editorial policies.   

3)  An Associate Editor for TCAS-1 should be engaged and willing to process at least 3-5 new papers per month in his/her field of expertise.

4)  TCAS-1 Associate Editors will receive detailed AE instructions, and our in-house editorial team will also provide administrative support. 

Interested candidates are welcome to submit their CV and a cover letter including a statement of motivation, previous editorial or reviewing experience, vision for the journal and involvement in research related to circuits and systems to eic2020.tcas1@gmail.com by 15 October 2021. Any questions about this post can be directed to this email. We expect to conclude the recruitment process on 1 December 2021.

Thank you for your interest!
