The UCSD Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at Assistant Professor rank. Our focus this year is on candidates who advance research in vision, computer architecture, cyber-physical systems, and software engineering/software quality. However, outstanding candidates in all areas will be seriously considered. Candidates with experience or willingness to engage in activities that contribute to diversity and inclusion are especially encouraged to apply.
The department is looking for applicants with outstanding research credentials. Successful applicants are expected to lead a vigorous research program and will be required to teach university students. A Ph.D. or advancement to candidacy in Computer Science & Engineering or related disciplines is required at the time of application. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications in conformance with University of California policies.
The CSE Department is committed to building an excellent, diverse, and inclusive 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 500 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 Supercomputer Center (SDSC), and the Center for Wireless Communications (CWC), which provide unique opportunities and resources.
