The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University invites applications for two or more full-time, nine-month, tenure-track faculty positions in any area of cybersecurity including but not limited to systems security (operating systems, distributed systems, networked systems, embedded systems, real-time systems, cyber-physical systems, and energy delivery systems), hardware security, software security, privacy, cryptography and usable security. Appointment will start in Fall 2020 and is anticipated at the Assistant Professor rank, but candidates with exceptional qualifications may be considered for appointment at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or closely related discipline, and should demonstrate a strong commitment and capacity to initiate new funded research as well as to expand, complement, and collaborate with existing research programs in the OSU College of Engineering and beyond. Furthermore, applicants should demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching, including developing new courses related to their research expertise. Applicants are also expected to mentor students and promote equitable outcomes among learners of diverse and underrepresented identity groups.

Oregon State University is located in Corvallis, at the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley and close to Portland’s Silicon Forest with numerous collaboration opportunities. The School of EECS has 60 tenured/tenure-track faculty members and 435 graduate students (225 Ph.D. students). Among the faculty, we have one member of the National Academy of Engineering, 18 professional society (IEEE and ACM) fellows, and 25 Young Investigator/CAREER Award recipients. Many faculty members of the School of EECS are also active participants of the recently established Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CoRIS) Institute.

Corvallis has been ranked #1 on a list of “Best Places for Work-Life Balance”, and is within easy reach of Portland, Eugene, the Cascade mountain range, and the Oregon Coast. Oregon State University has a strong institutional commitment to diversity and multiculturalism and provides a welcoming atmosphere with unique professional opportunities for leaders from underrepresented groups. OSU seeks diversity as a source of enrichment for our university community. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who share our vision of an inclusive community. The College of Engineering ranks high nationally in terms of the percentage of women faculty, and the university supports dual-career applications.
