The Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech (cs.vt.edu) seeks applicants for at least three faculty positions, including two open rank positions in computer systems and a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in AI/ML. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in computer science or related field at the time of appointment and a rank-appropriate record of scholarship and collaboration in computing research. Successful candidates should give evidence of commitment to issues of diversity in the campus community. Tenured and tenure-track faculty are expected to teach graduate and undergraduate courses, mentor graduate students, and develop a high-quality research program.
ASSISTANT, ASSOCIATE, OR FULL PROFESSORS IN COMPUTER SYSTEMS. Candidates are sought for multiple tenured or tenure-track positions in computing systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: operating systems, file and storage systems, distributed systems, cloud, IoT and edge systems, mobile systems, secure and reliable systems, embedded systems, system management, and virtualization. Candidates with interests in systems research topics applicable to high-performance blockchain systems and applications are particularly encouraged to apply. We also welcome candidates at the interface to related areas such as computer architecture, networking, programming languages, and analytics. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to leverage significant ongoing collaboration and support from industrial partners, including block.one, with strengths in decentralized systems and blockchain applications. This initiative is also part of ongoing investment that has led to six tenure-track faculty members joining the department and the stack@cs Center for Computer Systems since 2013. Stack@cs researchers consistently publish and showcase high-impact results at top international venues. Current stack@cs strengths include parallel and distributed systems, file and storage systems, cloud, IoT and edge systems, compilers and runtime systems, computer architecture, systems security, and high-performance computing. Current stack@cs faculty have earned 8 Early Career Awards and numerous faculty awards from industry.
Applications must be submitted online tojobs.vt.edu for posting #TR0180127. Applicant screening will begin on November 26, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Kirk Cameron, Search Committee Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org.
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN AI/ML. The department seeks applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in artificial intelligence and/or machine learning. Exceptional candidates at higher ranks may also be considered. Candidates with core research interests in AI/ML are especially encouraged to apply. Some example areas include deep learning, reinforcement learning, natural language processing, probabilistic models, optimization, and learning theory. Example application areas of interest include computer vision, robotics, social informatics, high performance computing, and intelligent systems. The department has an active group of researchers in AI/ML, many of whom are members of the Discovery Analytics Center (dac.cs.vt.edu), which leads data science research on campus. CS faculty also collaborate in other interdisciplinary research groups, including the Center for Human Computer Interaction (hci.vt.edu), the Center for Business Intelligence and Analytics (cbia.pamplin.vt.edu), the Hume Center for National Security and Technology (hume.vt.edu) and the Biocomplexity Institute (bi.vt.edu). Successful candidates will also have the opportunity to engage in transdisciplinary research, curriculum, and outreach initiatives with other university faculty working in the Data & Decisions Destination Area, one of several university-wide initiatives (provost.vt.edu/destination-areas).
Applications must be submitted online tojobs.vt.edu for posting #TR0180129. Applicant screening will begin on December 10, 2018 and continue until the positions are filled. Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Edward Fox, Search Committee Chair, email@example.com.
