Position Summary:

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Hiring Initiative within the Center for No-Boundary Thinking (CNBT) is to intensify Arkansas State University’s (A-State) academic capacity and research in AI and machine learning by connecting all disciplines with multiple tenure-track/tenured, open-rank (assistant, associate, or full professor) faculty positions

Arkansas State University is the catalyst for progress in our state, the Mississippi Delta, the Mid-South region, and beyond. Specifically, A-State serves three major economic sectors – healthcare, agriculture, and manufacturing. The successful candidate should contribute to these sectors of the economy by addressing today's grand challenges. The National Science Foundation defines these grand challenges, such as protecting human health; understanding the food, energy, and water nexus; exploring the universe at all scales; the future of work at the human-technology frontier, as problems that will not be solved by one discipline and require the merging of ideas, approaches, and technologies from widely diverse fields of knowledge to stimulate innovation and discovery

The Center for No-Boundary Thinking (CNBT) promotes the concept of No-Boundary Thinking, which is beyond interdisciplinary and convergence research. As the first No-Boundary Thinking center nationwide, the CNBT at A-State focuses on developing human infrastructure at the frontier of bioinformatics, advanced data science, and artificial intelligence. The vision of the CNBT is to take AI technology to the next level by addressing challenging research problems while transcending the boundaries of traditional disciplinary sciences. The faculty enhancement of the CNBT will emphasize A-State’s passion and dedication to strengthening the agriculture, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors through the integration of AI and machine learning

The CNBT is home to the Arkansas AI-Campus, The Bioinformatics Lab at Arkansas State University, and the Joint Translational Research Lab, a combined effort of Arkansas State University and St. Bernards Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program. Incoming faculty will join one or more of the following CNBT divisions: Division of Algorithms and Computational Methodology, Division of Advanced Data Science and Learning, Division of Biological Systems, and the Division of Medical Sciences and Public Health

Selected applicants will join a diverse and vibrant academic community that values its researchers and is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion

Duties & Responsibilities:

  • The faculty workload includes research, teaching, creative activity, service, and professional development in the best interest of the students and community at large
  • All faculty members are expected to assume student mentorship responsibility
  • Other duties as assigned


We welcome outstanding applicants with an understanding of the concept of No-Boundary Thinking and with research and teaching interests aligning with the goals and mission of the CNBT at the intersection of artificial intelligence/machine learning and advanced data science

Preferred faculty candidates will have a background in any area of computer science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, medical science, public health, social sciences, biology, operations management, or agriculture. A documented history of competitive, extramural funding is expected for consideration at higher ranks
