Open Faculty Positions

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the University of Nevada, Reno invites applications for three tenure-track assistant professor faculty positions starting July 1, 2014.

One position is in the area of cybersecurity and one is in the area of advanced manufacturing with emphasis in robotics and automation, and digital manufacturing. Both positions are part of newly forming clusters, established jointly with other departments at UNR.

The cybersecurity cluster includes the Information Systems Department in the College of Business and the Political Science Department in the College of Science.

The advanced manufacturing cluster encompasses the departments of Mechanical Engineering, Chemical and Materials Engineering, and Computer Science and Engineering.

The third position is open to all research areas, while candidates with expertise in embedded systems, computer architecture, high-performance computing for modeling, simulation and analysis, big data and cloud computing may be given preference.

The department is dynamic and is rapidly expanding, with two positions added last year and more to be added in following years. Our faculty are recipients of prestigious NSF Career awards and are leaders in state-wide and multi-state multi-million dollar NSF awards. Research in the department is supported by major funding agencies, including NSF, DoD, DHS and NASA, and by companies such as Google, Microsoft and AT&T. With strong research and education programs in Intelligent Systems, Networks, Software Systems, and Games, the department's annual research expenditures have been exceeding $2M for the past years. The department offers BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees. We expect strong growth in research funding and student enrollments over the next few years.
