The brand-new School of Computing (formerly Department of Computer Science and Engineering) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) seeks two faculty members at any rank in data science, informatics, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and related areas. Such research areas are ubiquitous in myriad application areas spanning both UNL campuses. These positions are motivated by the School’s strategic plan to establish top programs in the development of transformative technologies for human health, agriculture, biocomputing, and robotics, and is part of a multi-year strategic hiring initiative. This goal builds upon the School’s existing strengths in informatics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. Candidates currently in an Associate Professor role are encouraged to apply. Minimum Required Qualifications:
As part of this initiative, the School of Computing (https://computing.unl.edu) invites applications for two tenured or tenure-track faculty positions in AI/informatics/data science/machine learning at the Full, Associate, or Assistant Professor level. The successful candidates will contribute to the undergraduate and graduate academic programs within the School and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in both research and teaching.
The School of Computing was formed in August 2021 and consists of 45 faculty, 900 undergraduate students, and 125 graduate students. UNL offers an outstanding infrastructure for conducting research, including a remotely accessible city-wide wireless testbed, indoor and outdoor aerial robotics facilities, access to farm test plots, a full range of computing facilities, and the Holland Computing Center (https://hcc.unl.edu). Opportunities for collaborations include the College of Engineering; Center for Digital Research in the Humanities; Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior; the School of Biological Sciences; the Center for Intelligent Healthcare at the University of Nebraska Medical Center; and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
