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.
