Assistant Professor in applied AI/ML and data science


University of Wyoming
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of Wyoming is partnering in a broad cluster hire in applied artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) and data science led by a new School of Computing. Through the cluster hire in New Tools and Novel Approaches for Enabling Applications of Advanced AI/ML and Big Data we invite applications for a tenure-track faculty member at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin in August 2023. The position will be held jointly between the School of Computing (tenure home) and the EECS Department.

Through this opportunity, the EECS Department seeks an interdisciplinary scholar with diverse interests and expertise in any research areas broadly related to Internet of Things (IoT), High Performance Computing (HPC), Human Computer Interaction (HCI) or the intersection of data science and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML). The candidate should have the capacity to develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in areas related to their research. In addition, the new faculty member will foster relationships between SoC and the EECS Department to serve as a conduit for cross-disciplinary research.
