Now Accepting Applications for Summer 2018

The UMN REU Site program is focused on the computational methods for finding and visualizing patterns in big data that bring insight and understanding to other disciplines. In this 10 week summer program, students both local and national will come together to learn about big data, to participate in active research, and to receive professional development training. As a participant in this program, you will be closely mentored by a Computer Science and Engineering (CS&E) faculty member while working on an open research question driven by massive complex datasets. As a participant, you will receive a $5000 stipend, room and board, and travel reimbursement.

To learn more, see the Program Activities page under Schedule and Activities

Application directions can be found on the Apply page.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities is hiring multiple tenure-track positions at the assistant professor level, although higher levels of appointment may be considered when commensurate with experience. Candidates with expertise in any area of computer science and engineering will be considered, those with research interests in software engineering; human-computer interaction; systems research related to cloud/edge computing, big data and Internet-of-Things (IoT) are particularly encouraged to apply.

We are also aiming to fill one position in support of a university-wide initiative (MnDRIVE) on robotics, sensors, and advanced manufacturing (http://cse.umn.edu/mndrive); topics of interest include sensing and networking, machine learning, computer graphics/simulation/visualization, robot design, manipulation, mobility, human-robot interaction, planning, algorithmic foundations, and embedded systems.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is fully committed to a diverse faculty because excellence emerges when individuals with different backgrounds and experiences engage. We therefore welcome  applications from individuals who will further expand that diversity; women and other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related discipline at the time of appointment. Submit materials as described at https://wwws.cs.umn.edu/appflow/faculty17. Consideration of complete applications will begin December 1, 2017, and continue until the positions are filled. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity employer and educator.
