Jointly with the Medical University of South Carolina and with participation of an interdisciplinary cohort of faculty spanning many departments at Clemson University, the School of Computing administers MS and PhD graduate programs in Biomedical Data Science & Informatics (BDSI). We invite applications from candidates in research areas that will support these programs in BDSI, and that also generally align well with the School of Computing.

The school includes 44 faculty, of which 36 are tenured or tenure-track. It enrolls over 800 undergraduate and over 250 graduate students. The School offers BA and BS degrees in Computer Science, BS in Computer Information Systems, PhD and MS in Computer Science, MFA and MS in Digital Production Arts, PhD in Human-Centered Computing, and PhD and MS in Biomedical Data Science & Informatics.

Clemson is the public land grant institution of South Carolina and is classified in the highest research category by the Carnegie Foundation. Clemson enrolls nearly 24,000 students, including over 5,000 ethnic minorities and 1,500 international students. In Fall 2018, Clemson has over 18,600 undergraduate and 4,800 graduate students. Research and economic development activities are enhanced by public-private partnerships at three innovation campuses and six research and education centers located throughout South Carolina. Clemson University is ranked 24th among public national universities by U.S. News & World Report. We are fully committed to a culturally diverse faculty and student body.


Successful candidates should have an earned doctorate by the start date of August 15th, 2019 in any computing-related discipline. Since many areas of study are related to Biomedical Data Science & Informatics, we encourage applications from candidates having a broad range of academic backgrounds. Rank will be commensurate with qualifications. We value diversity and thus strongly encourage applications from exceptional scholars who can also contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community through research, teaching, and service.

Application Instructions:

The anticipated start date is August 15, 2019. Application review will begin November 15, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should upload a cover letter, current vitae, research statement, teaching statement and the names and addresses of three references to Interfolio.
