Syracuse University's School of Information Studies (The iSchool, see http://ischool.syr.edu) is soliciting applications from scholars to join its renowned and interdisciplinary faculty in one or more of the following areas:cloud/distributed computing
This tenure track position is open rank, and we specifically encourage graduating doctoral students, senior assistant professors, and recently tenured faculty to apply. The successful candidate will join our "Faculty of One" in a highly collegial environment that stresses collaboration amongst our school's faculty and with other members of the university community.
We seek colleagues who can deepen and extend our emerging strengths in data science or cloud management or cloud computing.
We see data science as a broad area that employs large scale, often heterogeneous, data sets in the areas of: computational social science; data curation; visualization; natural language processing, information retrieval, artificial intelligence, machine learning, or deep learning; developing tools and socio-technical processes for scientific collaboration, data access and data retrieval; and other possible areas emphasizing analysis and representation of large scale data.
We see cloud management and cloud computing as broad areas building upon web services, distributed and grid computing research to monitor performance and compliance, and accelerate research and innovation in cloud services. Cloud management ensures that cloud computing across software-defined private, hybrid and public cloud compute, storage, and virtualized machine and network resources is technically efficient, optimizes capacity, and is resilient, integrating governance and risk requirements strategically with organizational and user needs. Possible areas of interest include the development and operation (develops) of the infrastructure for sociotechnical systems of software, technologies, services, business and social practices to architect, integrate and orchestrate data and applications of cognitive cyberphysical systems, social and smart machines, and things.
Located at the center of picturesque Syracuse University, the iSchool is at the cutting edge of scholarship and instruction. The iSchool has four degree programs and an enrollment of 36 doctoral students, 570 masters' students and 730 undergraduates, led by 48 full-time faculty and 100 part-time faculty. Our faculty have recognized strengths in data science, cloud management, natural language processing, computational social science, information retrieval, information management, online communities and civic participation, new forms of organization and collaboration, information and communications policy, smart energy systems, digital literacy, information and network security, globalization, entrepreneurship, and social media. The school hosts six research centers and laboratories, including the Center for Emerging Network Technology and a newly created Center for Computational and Data Sciences, which advances scholarship on computational analytics and data collection, processing, and curation techniques to conduct innovative research that answers important questions in the social and natural sciences. The SU-ADVANCE program provides extensive mentoring services for women faculty in STEM disciplines.
