The Department of Computer Science of Marquette University invites applications for two tenure-track positions in computer science at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin in August 2020. The Department seeks two individuals with a doctorate by time of appointment in computer science or a closely related field, whose areas of expertise address one of the many facets of the broadly defined areas in data science and cybersecurity. Examples include data-focused research in artificial intelligence, machine learning, bioinformatics, biomedical and health informatics, visualization and visual analytics, human-computer interaction, social computing, privacy, ethics, and cybersecurity research on cryptography, cryptographic hardware, secure software development, formal verification, language-based security, forensics, cloud and edge computing. Candidates with research in other areas with similar data science and security emphasis will be considered and are encouraged to apply. Exceptional candidates with research interests in other areas related to computer science will also be considered.

Preference will be given to applicants whose strong research record demonstrates the potential for establishing an externally funded research program, and who can contribute to the Ph.D. program in Computer Science. Furthermore, candidates should demonstrate the ability to teach at the undergraduate and the graduate levels, and have excellent oral, written, and interpersonal skills.

The Department highly regards and encourages interdisciplinary research in both academia and industry. Marquette University is experiencing significant growth in computer science, data science, and affiliated areas. Marquette has recently partnered with Northwestern Mutual on a $40 million venture to establish the Northwestern Mutual Data Science Institute. This venture will provide research opportunities for the existing and new faculty members. For more information about the current Department and its programs, see
