The Department of Computer Science and the Department of Informatics at the University at Albany, State University of New York (UAlbany), within the College of Computing and Information (CCI), are seeking candidates for one open rank, tenure-track faculty position with a specialization in data analytics and three tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level with a specialization in cyber-security beginning Fall 2014. These positions will be posted shortly on our faculty vacancy website: http://www.albany.edu/hr/vacancy.php. Applicants are encouraged to apply online once the posting is available.
We are looking for faculty with research expertise that includes, but is not limited to, large-scale data analytics or cyber-security, areas that the University has identified as priorities for development. In data analytics, we seek candidates whose research involves the design and implementation of data analytics techniques or systems that can be used in other areas (e.g., security, computer forensics, software engineering, natural language processing, social network analysis, physical sciences, social sciences, health sciences, and business). In cyber-security, we seek candidates whose research involves any number of areas across the broad range of technical, organizational, and societal aspects of information assurance.
Efforts are underway to create a center for data analytics to foster strong interdisciplinary collaboration. The university also has the Center for Information Forensics and Assurance as a nexus for cyber-security research. The successful candidates are encouraged to be active members of one or both of these centers and participate in interdisciplinary research. In addition, candidates must have a strong interest in teaching Computer Science and/or Informatics courses at all levels.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or Information Science or a closely related discipline from a college or university accredited by the U.S. Department of Education or an internationally recognized accrediting organization. Candidates who expect to receive their Ph.D. by August 2014 may also apply. Candidates applying for the data analytics open rank position at the level of Associate or Full Professor position must also have a strong record of funded research. Applicants must submit a complete CV, including a list of publications, a research statement and a teaching statement, along with the names and contact information for at least 3 references.
Questions regarding the position may be addressed to omnibussearch2014 at albany.edu.
