The School of Computing (SoC) at Clemson University invites applications for positions in its Visual Computing (VC) Division and in support of its Biomedical Data Science & Informatics (BDSI) program. VC invites applicants within all areas related to computer graphics and interactive techniques as well as computer vision, robotics and perception with keen interest in applicants in medical simulation, medical visualization, computational fabrication and virtual reality applications. The BDSI program is run jointly with the Medical University of South Carolina and with participation of an interdisciplinary cohort of faculty spanning many departments at Clemson University, while the School of Computing administers the graduate programs. SoC is interested in 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 800+ undergraduate and 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.
