POSITION DESCRIPTION

In this search, we seek tenure-track or tenured faculty members in all areas of Computer Science. AI/Machine Learning, Quantum Computing, Security and Privacy, and Database Systems are priority areas for the department. However, outstanding candidates in all areas will be considered. We seek faculty eager to build on our existing research collaborations in the Center for Responsible Machine Learning, the Center for Black Studies Research, the Center for Information Technology in Society, the Institute for Energy Efficiency, and well beyond, and to help us establish new partnerships and research programs bringing computation and computational tools to problems of societal importance. We seek motivated and passionate researchers eager to work with a community of their peers to address issues of societal importance through surprising and creative applications of computing. The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the inclusive excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service as appropriate to the position. Successful candidates for faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to equity and inclusion in their application materials, including the Diversity Statement. A primary appointment will be in the Department of Computer Science, but affiliate or joint appointments in any partner departments across engineering, social sciences, humanities, and/or physical sciences are strongly encouraged. The Department of Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara understands that computing intersects society in many complex ways but that by striving to be a place where every student, faculty, and staff can grow and thrive, we will position ourselves to be the best to take on these challenges together!

Applicants will be considered by an interdisciplinary group of faculty, and all applicants must have a demonstrated record of excellence in, or show exceptional promise for, high-quality research, teaching, and service to the community. Applicants with a demonstrated record of interest in, and commitment to, the mentorship of students from underrepresented and underserved populations will be given particular attention. Candidates will be offered the opportunity to satisfy a portion of their undergraduate teaching responsibilities through active mentoring and leadership in programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for our diverse student body (e.g., through the Los Ingenieros, UCSB Women in Computer Science, the Early Research Scholars Program, or the CBSR Student Engagement and Enrichment in Data Science Program).

Candidates will be considered for the endowed Stansbury Chair in Computer Science. Stansbury Chair appointments focus on attracting a leading-edge junior scientist and educator working in cutting-edge areas that help the University prepare our students and position the University for the future. The goal of the Stansbury Chair is to identify, recruit, and nurture a junior scholar that will emerge as one of the next generations of leaders and educators.
