Faculty Positions (3) in Data Science, Cyber-Security, and Computer Science - Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Case Western Reserve University invites applications for three faculty positions:

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Data Science: While exceptional candidates in all areas of Computer and Data Sciences will be considered for this position, our priority areas include Big Data Management and Systems, Databases, Data Mining, and Machine Learning. While all ranks will be considered, preference will be given to candidates at the Assistant Professor level.

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Cyber-Security: In conjunction with the Institute for Smart, Secure, and Connected Systems (ISSACS), we are seeking candidates with research interests including but not limited to: theory and algorithms (e.g. cryptography, secure computing, secure data analysis, data privacy), systems (e.g. secure networks, distributed systems, cloud and virtualized environments, mobile devices), and applications (e.g. security in Internet-of-Things, cyber-physical systems, health, computer forensics). While all ranks will be considered, preference will be given to candidates at the Associate or Full Professor level.

For the tenure-track positions, candidates for the junior positions should have potential for excellence in innovative research. Candidates for the senior positions should have an established record of research excellence. All successful candidates are expected to develop a vibrant, high-quality externally sponsored research program, supervise graduate students, and interact and collaborate with faculty across the department and campus. Applicants should have a strong commitment to high quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidates must have a PhD in Computer Science or a closely related field. Current departmental strengths include Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Internet of Things, Machine Learning, Networks and Distributed Systems, Cyber-Security and Privacy, and Software Engineering, and successful candidates will be expected to be synergistic with these strengths.

Non-Tenure Track Faculty Position in Computer Science: We are seeking applicants dedicated to curriculum development and teaching in foundational areas of Computer and Data Sciences, including introductory programming, discrete mathematics, data structures, data science, and computer systems. The rank of the candidate will be commensurate with experience. In addition to teaching, successful candidates are also expected to be involved in departmental service.

Applicants must submit (i) a cover letter, (ii) current curriculum vitae, (iii) statement of research interests, (iv) statement of teaching interests, and (v) contact information for at least three references for a junior position and six references for a senior position.
