Assistant Professor: Computer Science - 9719BR
Assistant Professor: Computer Science
Computer Science: Applicants across all areas of theoretical computer science are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to, algorithms, graph/decision/game theory, complexity, constraint satisfaction, algebra, and decidability, and artificial intelligence. Applicants are sought who apply their expertise to both core and emerging applications of computer science, e.g., cybersecurity, high-assurance systems, resiliency, data science, scientific computing, and computational geometry, smart and connected communities.
Exceptional applicants in other closely related areas to the above topics may be considered.
The successful candidate will be expected to pursue research in areas that are synergistic with departmental strengths.
EECS leads the KU School of Engineering with 36 faculty members and a research volume of about $4.8 million per year. The EECS department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, interdisciplinary computing, and information technology. The department has approximately 600 undergraduate and 200 graduate students. EECS faculty engage in collaborative research projects across multiple areas of interest within the department and the University. There are many interdisciplinary opportunities involving schools at KU and the KU Medical Center.
The KU School of Engineering has added new faculty lines over a 5 year period and has expanded research and teaching facilities. The University of Kansas is focused on four key campus-wide strategic initiatives: (1) Sustaining the Planet, Powering the World; (2) Promoting Well-Being, Finding Cures; (3) Building Communities, Expanding Opportunities; and (4) Harnessing Information, Multiplying Knowledge. For more information, see http://www.provost.ku.edu/planning/themes/ . Successful candidates should describe in their application materials how their work addresses one or more of KU’s strategic initiatives.
40% Perform and conduct research in the research centers/laboratories associated with the department. Establish a strong research agenda in areas of expertise that overlaps, supports, or expands the current research in the department, leading to external grant support and publication in recognized refereed journals. Collaborate with faculty and professional staff on KU campuses.
20% Perform Department, School, University and professional service activities normally expected of university faculty commensurate with rank. Participating in local, national and international professional conferences and other activities appropriate to the discipline. Perform other duties as assigned by the Department Chair.
2. Expertise in any research areas in theoretical computer science, including but not limited to, algorithms, graph/decision/game theory, complexity, constraint satisfaction, algebra, and decidability, and artificial intelligence.
