Computer Science/Software Engineering – Open Rank Tenure System Deadline: April 30, 2020 >>

The Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas invites applications from outstanding applicants for multiple tenure-system positions in computer science. Candidates in all areas of computer science will be considered, though the department is particularly interested in virtual/augmented reality, human computer interaction, data science, cyber security, AI, quantum computing, and IoT. Candidates must have a PhD degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Computer Engineering or equivalent. The positions are open for applicants at all ranks. Candidates for senior positions must have a distinguished record of research, publication, teaching, and service, and demonstrated leadership ability in developing and expanding (funded) research programs. An endowed chair may be available for highly qualified senior candidates. Junior candidates must show outstanding promise.

The department offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees both in Computer Science and Software Engineering. It also offers degrees in Data Science, Computer Engineering, and Telecommunications Engineering that are jointly administered with other departments. Currently, the department has a total of 50 tenure-system faculty members and 44 full-time senior lecturers. The department is housed in a spacious 150,000 square feet facility and has excellent computing equipment and support. In areas such as natural language processing/AI, software engineering and embedded systems, the department ranks within the top seven on csrankings.org. The department also houses a number of centers and institutes, particularly in the areas of cyber security, human language technology, and net-centric software, and applied AI and machine learning.

The university is located in the most attractive part of the Dallas metropolitan area. There are over 1,000 high-tech companies within a few miles of the campus, including Texas Instruments, Walmart Labs, AT&T, Fujitsu, Raytheon, Rockwell Collins, and Cisco. The DFW metroplex has one of the highest concentrations of high-tech jobs in the nation. Opportunities for joint university-industry research projects are excellent. The department averages approximately $9 million in extramural research funding annually, ranking 37th in the ASEE (2016) survey of research expenditures. The University and the State of Texas are also making considerable investment in commercialization of technology; a start-up business incubation center has been operational at UT Dallas since 2011.

Applicants should upload a letter of interest; curriculum vitae; statements of research interest and teaching philosophy/experience; teaching evaluations (if available); and the full contact information for at least three academic or professional references.

For more information, contact Dr. Gopal Gupta, Department Head, via email ([email protected]) or send e-mail to [email protected] or view the web page at http://cs.utdallas.edu.

The search committee will begin evaluating applications on January 15, 2020. Applications received on or before January 15 will get highest preference.
