Hiring Department

The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Science and Engineering / Division of Computing, Analytics and Mathematics

Job Description The Division of Computing, Analytics & Mathematics (CAM) is seeking applications and nominations for multiple tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in Computer Science at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level, starting in Spring or Fall 2023. Areas of interest include AI, AR/VR, Cybersecurity, Data Science, and other emerging fields. Strong candidates in all areas of Computer Science will be considered.

CAM is one of the four divisions in the new School of Science and Engineering (SSE) established through UMKC Forward, a university initiative to create multidisciplinary learning, academics, research, and outreach. CAM offers undergraduate degrees in Computer Science (ABET-accredited), Information Technology (ABET-accredited), and Mathematics, MS degrees in Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics, and Statistics, and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science, Computer Networking and Communication Systems, and Mathematics. These programs foster an open, collaborative research and education environment. Most recently, the CAM division has received a $3M NSF NRT grant and an $879K CDC grant. The existing Computer Science research focuses on AI, Big Data Analytics, Bioinformatics, Cloud Computing, Computer Networks, Cybersecurity, and Software Engineering. The new hires will undertake research and education initiatives to strengthen the current areas and mentor our diverse student population.

CAM is instrumental to the University of Missouri System's NextGen Data Science and Analytics Innovation Center (dSAIC), which supports university research across the state and plays a critical role in the region's health, business, and workforce development. dSAIC is based at UMKC and operates in partnership with the University of Missouri-Columbia.

CAM faculty have joint projects with the UMKC Missouri Institute of Defense and Energy (MIDE), School of Pharmacy, School of Medicine, and College of Arts and Sciences. MIDE is founded on bridging fundamental physics with applied engineering to solve longstanding challenges in the defense, energy, and related commercial sectors. As of 2021, MIDE has secured $50M in externally awarded grants and contracts. In 2015, MIDE was presented with the R&D100 award for a defense technology that led to two small businesses and two licensed patents; Two MIDE faculty received the Intel Outstanding Researcher award for their work on next-generation transistors. They are the only recipients from the University of Missouri System since the award’s inauguration in 2012.

The SSE recently added a new $40M ($23M building and $17M equipment), 58,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility to support multidisciplinary education, research, and economic development initiatives. Some of the key components of this new facility are AR/VR Lab, Innovation Studio & 3D Printing Lab, and High-Performance Computing Lab.

Minimum Qualifications The candidates must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related discipline prior to the start date. The successful candidates will be expected to (1) have a strong commitment to teaching courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs; (2) develop and sustain an extramurally funded research program; (3) engage in departmental, school, or university services appropriate to the position; and (4) advance the goals and strategic plan of SSE and UMKC.

UMKC Statement on Diversity Diversity, equity and inclusion are central to the UMKC mission as an urban-serving institution. Kansas City is a particularly diverse city, including African, African American, Asian, German, Irish, Italian, Latino, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Native American and Slavic communities. Such ethnic diversity, in addition to our thriving neighborhoods of the Westside, Northeast Kansas City and the Eastside, fosters creativity, connection and innovation, which is showcased across the region. Major attractions such as the Annual Ethnic Enrichment Festival, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, the Filipino Cultural Center, the American Jazz Museum, Guadalupe Centers and Mattie Rhodes and Kansas City Irish Fest are a small sample of the many ways our diverse city enriches us.

For the reasons enumerated above, UMKC’s strategic plan prioritizes our commitment to multiculturalism, globalism, diversity and inclusion. The university’s values call upon its faculty, staff, students and community to position themselves as global citizens who seek out, embrace and celebrate the many benefits of diversity. UMKC received the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award in 2019 in recognition of our continued commitment to equity and inclusion. Such commitment is demonstrated across teaching, service and research. We welcome applicants to share in our commitment to these core values and know that you will quickly understand the beauty of calling Kansas City your home.
