Applications are invited for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant/associate professor level beginning in Fall 2020. While candidates with research expertise in computer vision, machine learning, data-intensive computing, security, network systems or embedded software engineering will receive the strongest consideration, outstanding applicants in other areas will also be considered. This search is primarily at the assistant professor level, but candidates with exceptional accomplishments will be considered for senior levels. Faculty candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field by their start date and to demonstrate potential for excellence in both research and teaching.

The Department of Computer Science has 21 tenured or tenure-track faculty members and 6 teaching faculty members, with research strengths in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Computer Systems (e.g., Real-time Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, Autonomous Systems, and Edge Computing), Data Science, Graphics and Visualization, Software Engineering and Wireless Networking. The research in the department is also highly interdisciplinary with active collaborations with faculty in medicine, engineering, and sciences and with local industry such as the Ford Motor Company and General Motors. The Department has five NSF CAREER recipients, with two CAREER awards in 2019 and external funding of over $2.0M annually. The department currently has 65 Ph.D. students, along with 75 Master’s students, and about 900 undergraduate majors.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, statement of research and teaching, and curriculum vitae with the contact information of three references. For full consideration, applications must be received by February 15, 2020.
