PROFESSOR (ALL RANKS) IN THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS OF DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS
The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) seek applicants for tenuretrack/tenured faculty positions in Theoretical Foundations of Distributed Systems in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE). Researchers with interests in the theoretical aspects of distributed systems, algorithms, and computation (broadly defined) are encouraged to apply. Areas of interests include, but are not limited to, blockchain protocols, gametheoretic approaches to distributed computing, secure multiparty computation and cryptography, biologically-inspired distributed algorithms, resilient distributed systems, Internet of Things (IoT), and other emerging areas of distributed computing.
The distributed algorithms and systems, and the network algorithms and optimization groups in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering includes faculty working on a variety of topics spanning the theoretical aspects and the more applied sides of distributed systems, including bio-inspired collective algorithms, blockchain, cloud computing, crowdsensing, cybersecurity, network algorithms and optimization, self-organizing and self-stabilizing distributed systems, and survivable networks. Extensive collaborations exist with other world-class groups within our school and across the university, including the AI group, the Cybersecurity group, the Robotics group, the DHS Center for Accelerating Operational Efficiency, the BioDesign Institute, and the Global Institute of Sustainability.
Required qualifications: Earned Ph.D. or equivalent in computer science, computer engineering, algorithms, distributed systems, parallel and distributed computing or related field by the time of employment. Demonstrated evidence of excellence in research and teaching as appropriate to the candidate’s rank. Desired qualifications (junior level): Commitment to teaching at both the graduate and the undergraduate levels, strong record of publications in top-tier venues and the potential for establishing an externally funded research program. Desired qualifications (senior level): Record of high-quality teaching and a record of acquiring external funding and publication in top-tier journals/conferences with real-world impact.
We seek applicants who will contribute to our programs and expand collaborations with existing faculty at ASU. Located in Tempe with easy access to the outdoors and urban amenities, ASU's vibrant and innovative approaches to research and teaching are charting new paths in education and research in the public interest. Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and undertake service activities. ASU strongly encourages transdisciplinary collaboration and use-inspired, socially relevant research. Successful candidates will be encouraged to expand expertise and collaborations in these areas. Although the tenure home may be in any of the Ira A Fulton Schools of Engineering, the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering is currently the most involved in the interest areas of this research. Appointments will be at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments, beginning August 2019. Review of applications will begin December 14, 2018; if not filled, reviews will occur on the 1st and 15th of every month thereafter until the search is closed. Apply at https://hiring.engineering.asu.edu/. Candidates will be asked to submit the following through their Interfolio Dossier:
Statement describing research interests
Statement describing teaching interests
(Optional) A short diversity statement
Contact information for at least three references
