The Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE), situated within the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering at Auburn University, invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions. We seek candidates at the Assistant Professor level, however outstanding candidates at a senior level will also be considered. Salary will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications. Responsibilities include research, graduate student supervision, graduate and undergraduate teaching, and service. A Ph.D. degree in computer science, software engineering or a closely related field must be completed by the start of appointment. Excellent communication skills are required.
We are interested in candidates specializing in all areas related to big data, data analytics, data engineering, data mining, data science and very large databases; for example, audio, graph, text or video data mining, tools and techniques for massive data storage, querying and analysis to solve real-world problems in vision, natural language understanding, anomaly detection, trend prediction, etc. Those whose research expertise can connect with other disciplines of engineering, health, liberal arts or science will be given special consideration. CSSE encourages interdisciplinary research. The department plans to offer a new joint (with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics) M.S. degree in Data Science & Engineering in fall 2019. Successful candidates will be expected to play an active role in this program as well as develop a nationally recognized and extramurally funded research program in Data Science & Engineering.
CSSE is home to the Auburn Cyber Research Center (http://cyber.auburn.edu), and is affiliated with the McCrary Institute for Critical Infrastructure Protection and Cyber Systems (http://mccrary.auburn.edu). The department currently has 21 full-time tenure-track and six teaching-track faculty members, who support strong undergraduate and graduate programs (M.S. in CSSE, M.S. in Cybersecurity Engineering and Ph.D. in CSSE). Current student enrollment is over 1100 undergraduate and 175 graduate students. Faculty research areas include artificial intelligence, architecture, computational biology, computer science education, cybersecurity, data science, energy-efficient systems, human-computer interaction, Internet of Things, learning science, machine learning, modeling and simulation, multi-agent systems, networks, software engineering and wireless engineering.
