Tenure-track or Tenured Faculty: The UCSD Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) seeks to fill multiple tenured or tenure-track faculty positions for Fall 2013. Exceptional candidates in all areas will be seriously considered. We especially encourage candidates working in the areas of parallel software, data-intensive systems, quantitative biology, medical informatics, energy-efficient systems, and sustainable computing to apply. The rank of the positions is at the Assistant Professor level; however, excellent candidates at all levels will be seriously considered. The department is looking for applicants with outstanding research credentials. Successful applicants are expected to lead a vigorous research program and to have a strong commitment to teaching. A Ph.D. in computer science or a related area is desired. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications in conformance with University of California policies.
Lecturer with (Potential) Security of Employment: The CSE Department also seeks applications for a Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment (Lecturer PSOE, which parallels a tenure-track assistant professor position) or Lecturer with Security of Employment (Lecturer SOE, which parallels a tenured professorial position). Successful candidates will be outstanding educators and should provide evidence of effective and innovative undergraduate teaching in computer science and engineering. In addition to teaching core courses, candidates are expected to lead the development and assessment of new educational initiatives, including applying for grants related to education. The successful candidate will provide guidance, leadership, and innovation for the CSE undergraduate programs. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. degree in computer science or a related area.
Visiting Professor/Lecturer: The CSE Department intends to appoint one or more Visiting (Assistant or Associate or Full) Professors or Lecturers, beginning Fall 2013 or earlier. Successful candidates are expected to teach undergraduate students and conduct research. These are two-year terminal positions, although candidates who prefer a one-year appointment will also be considered. Candidates at all ranks from new Ph.D.s to senior faculty, including sabbatical visitors, and in all areas of computer science, will be considered. Successful applicants should be able to provide evidence of excellence in teaching and of a promising research career.
The CSE Department is committed to building an excellent and diverse faculty, staff and student body. In addition to the highest standards of scholarship, teaching, and professional activity, the preferred candidates for any position will have potential or demonstrated contributions to a climate that supports equity, inclusion, and diversity.
CSE is home to over 50 faculty and 300 graduate students who span a range of research areas in computer science, computer engineering and bioinformatics. In addition, the department works closely with the Center for Networked Systems (CNS), the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (CalIT2), the San Diego Super Computer Center (SDSC), and the Center for Wireless Communications (CWC), which provide unique opportunities and resources.
