Job Description:


The Department of Computer Science in the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University (The State University of New York at Binghamton) invites applications for one tenure-track assistant professor position in the areas of Artificial Intelligence (deep learning, computer vision, NLP, knowledge management and reasoning) beginning in Spring 2020.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related discipline by the appointment date. Strong evidence of research capabilities and commitment to teaching are essential. Junior tenure-track faculty members have a significantly reduced teaching load for at least the first three years.


The Department of Computer Science and the Watson School are dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. We are particularly interested in candidates with a commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. Historically underrepresented minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and veterans, are strongly encouraged to apply.


Binghamton University, nationally recognized for its academic excellence, is one of the four Ph.D. granting University Centers within the SUNY system. The Computer Science Department has well established Ph.D. and M.S. programs and an accredited B.S. program. The Department has been on a successful and aggressive growth plan in recent years. The Department currently has 33 faculty members, over 500 CS majors, over 300 MS students and over 70 PhD students. The newly-established NSF industry-university collaborative research center on energy-smart electronic systems and local high-tech companies such as IBM, Lockheed-Martin and BAE provide opportunities for collaboration. The university just launched a new Data Science Transdisciplinary Area of Excellent (TAE), which will provide opportunities for collaboration across the entire campus. The Department is also part of a newly approved MS in Data Analytics degree program, together with several academic units on campus. The Computer Science faculty excels in research within the computer systems area and has a significant record of success, with 3 NSF CAREER awardees in its current faculty and significant annual research funding from a variety of agencies.
