TENURE TRACK FACULTY POSITION IN COMPUTER SCIENCE AND DATA SCIENCE
THE DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE (EECS) AT VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY is seeking candidates for a tenure-track faculty position in computer science. Candidates will be considered in broadly defined areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence, data science, and natural language processing, visualization, and/or computer vision. Successful candidates are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to develop and grow vigorous programs of externally funded research. The Vanderbilt CS program provides a unique, collaborative, and interdisciplinary research environment. These positions are part of a broader multi-year faculty hiring initiative in the data sciences. Candidates will be core members of Vanderbilt's recently established Data Science Institute, and will be expected to contribute to the research and teaching mission of the institute, and ideally to foster research collaborations with existing faculty across academic departments working on data science related topics.
Vanderbilt University is a private, internationally renowned research university located in vibrant Nashville, Tennessee. Its 10 schools share a single cohesive campus that nurtures interdisciplinary activities. The School of Engineering is on a strong upward trajectory in national and international stature and prominence, and has built infrastructure to support a significant expansion in faculty size. In the rankings of graduate engineering programs by U.S. News & World Report, the School ranks in the top 5 among programs with fewer than 100 faculty members. 5-year average T/TK faculty funding in the EECS Department is above $800k per year. All junior faculty members hired during the past 15 years have received prestigious young investigator awards, such as NSF CAREER and DARPA CSSG.
With a metro population of approximately 1.5 million people, Nashville has been named one of the 15 best U.S. cities for work and family by Fortune magazine, was ranked as the #1 most popular U.S. city for corporate relocations by Expansion Management magazine, and was named by Forbes magazine as one of the 25 cities most likely to have the country's highest job growth over the coming five years.
