The University of Oregon’s Computer and Information Science (CIS) Department invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin in September 2018. We seek candidates specializing in high-performance computing or data science. We are especially interested in scholars who will enhance/complement the department’s existing strengths in these areas. Applicants whose research addresses security and/or privacy issues in these sub-disciplines are of particular interest.

CIS is a diverse and growing department with strengths in networking and distributed systems, data science, and high-performance computing. We offer a stimulating, friendly environment for collaborative research both within the department, which expects to grow substantially in the next few years, and with other units on campus; for example, the department plays a key role in the Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact. The department hosts two interdisciplinary research centers, the Center for Cyber Security and Privacy and the NeuroInformatics Center. Successful candidates have access to a new, state-of-the-art high- performance computing facility. CIS is part of the College of Arts and Sciences and is housed within the Lorry Lokey Science Complex. The department offers B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. More information about the department, its programs and faculty can be found at https://cs.uoregon.edu/.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in computer science or closely related field, a demonstrated record of excellence in research, and a strong commitment to teaching. A successful candidate will be expected to conduct a vigorous research program and to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Additionally, successful candidates will support and enhance a diverse learning and working environment. Salary is competitive.

Candidates are asked to apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9499
by submitting a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a teaching statement, and

the contact details for a minimum of three referees, by 15 December 2017, or until the post has been filled. If you are unable to use this online resource, please contact faculty.search@cs.uoregon.edu to arrange alternate means of application submission.

The University of Oregon is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from minorities, women, and people with disabilities. Applicants are requested to include in their cover letter information about how they will further this goal. In particular, candidates should describe previous activities mentoring minorities, women, or members of other underrepresented groups.
