The Department of Computer Science (CS) invites applications for one tenure-track Assistant Professor and two open-rank positions (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor) starting in Fall 2020 in the general areas of algorithms/theory, computer systems/big data, and data science/artificial intelligence. Internationally recognized outstanding candidates in other areas are also encouraged to apply.
The CS department also invites applications for two cluster hiring in augmented and virtual reality and in quantum computing and information, with strong collaborative potential with other disciplines. The CS department is well-known for its cybersecurity programs and will play a significant role in the shaping of the newly formed School of Data Science (also hiring a School Academic Director and a Chief Data Strategist) and the National Security Collaboration Center, a combined $100M initiative.
Annual research expenditures in the department average $4M to $5M. The department fosters an excellent research and mentoring environment for faculty, in particular for early career faculty. This has resulted in nine NSF CAREER awards since 2005, among a strong portfolio of external awards. The University, a Hispanic Serving Institution, is on a significant growth trajectory and is embarking on an ambitious plan toward becoming a model for student success, a great public research university, and an exemplar for strategic growth and innovative excellence backed up by significant resources and multipronged initiatives. Therefore, salary and start-up packages for the positions are highly competitive. For enquiries and nominations, please contact the department chair at email@example.com.
