Applicants must have received a doctoral degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a closely related field by the start date of the position. They also must have demonstrated strong potential for excellence and productivity in research commensurate with the expectations of an R1 university along with a commitment to high-quality teaching. Successful candidates will be expected to teach core undergraduate CECS courses such as introduction to programming, data structures, algorithms, embedded systems, and operating systems, in addition to graduate level courses in her/his research areas; develop an independent, externally funded research program; mentor diverse students; participate in all aspects of the department’s mission; and serve the profession.
The CECS Department has been a degree granting department since 1971, when it was known as the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. CECS currently has 16 tenured or tenure-track faculty and two-term faculty with wide-ranging research interests and strong research groups in aerial robotics, bioinformatics, computer architecture, computer systems, cybersecurity, cyber-physical systems, data mining, databases, innovative and emerging technologies, knowledge discovery and web mining, mobile information networks and distributed systems, multimedia, real-time and embedded systems, and visualization and intensive graphics. CECS is expanding rapidly and expected to reach 18 tenured or tenure-track faculty and three full-time teaching faculty by the fall of 2020.
Faculty research (with 2018 expenditures exceeding $1.6 million and new awards exceeding $2.1 million) has been supported by a variety of federal grants and industrial contracts (NSF, NIH, NASA, NSA, DoD, DoE, Kindred Healthcare), including multiple prestigious young investigator awards (four NSF CAREER and one NSF CRII). The department has extensive interdisciplinary collaborations across several units at UofL, including Arts and Sciences, Social Work, Law, Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health, as well as with the other seven departments within the Speed School of Engineering.
The department offers ABET-accredited BS and MENG degrees in CECS, an MS degree in Computer Science, and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering, as well as graduate certificates in Data Science and Cybersecurity. The enrollment for the fall of 2018 includes 238 undergraduates, 96 master’s students (32 MENG and 64 MS), and 48 Ph.D. students.
