The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at University at Buffalo (UB) invites candidates to apply for the multiple faculty positions as Associate Professor or Full Professor to be known as Professor of Empire Innovation. Selected candidates will receive support through the SUNY Empire Innovation Program (EIP) which recognizes high caliber faculty with proven track record of externally funded research.
We invite prominent leaders in several foundational areas in artificial intelligence and robotic systems, including computer vision (including video analysis and 3D reconstruction), machine learning (including big data analytics and adversarial machine learning), natural language processing (audio-visual multimodal understanding), autonomous systems (such as driverless cars), human-robot collaboration (focusing on attack modeling, privacy preservation, and safety guarantees), knowledge representation and reasoning, and cognitive science (computational linguistics, philosophy, and computer modeling of neural networks and brains).
The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, mentor graduate students, advise students at all levels and maintain an active research program. We are particularly looking for candidates who can operate effectively in a diverse community of student and faculty and share our vision of helping all constituents reach their full potential.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is housed in a new $75 M building. As part of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the department offers both BA and BS degrees in Computer Science, a BS in Computer Engineering, a combined 5-year BS/MS program, a minor in Computer Science, and two joint programs (BA/MBA and Computational Physics), as well as MS and PhD programs.
The department has over 40 tenure-track faculty, 9 teaching faculty and approximately 1,200 undergraduates majors, 550 masters’ students and 160 PhD students. About twenty junior faculty have been hired since 2010, and we are continuing to expand. Two members of our faculty currently hold key university leadership positions, and seven members of our faculty are IEEE and/or ACM Fellows. The department is well known for offering excellent collaborative and nurturing environment for faculty. Recently, a cohort of five junior faculty received the CAREER awards in 2019, setting a national record.
Our faculty members are actively involved in cutting-edge research and successful interdisciplinary programs and centers devoted to biometrics; bioinformatics; biomedical computing; computational and data science and engineering, document analysis and recognition; high performance computing; information assurance and cyber security; embedded, networked and distributed systems, and sustainable transportation. Our faculty have excellent publication records over the years. For the past two years in a row (2017 and 2018), the department is ranked among the top 30 on csrangings.org. In 2017-2018, our research expenditure exceeded $6 million and the total amount of new awards in 2017 exceeded $12 million.
The University at Buffalo (UB), a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), is the largest and most comprehensive university in The State University of New York (SUNY) system, with about 20,000 undergraduates and 10,000 graduate students and 1600 fulltime faculty.
