Position Summary
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at University at Buffalo invites candidates to apply for 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 records 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 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 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 tenured/tenure-track faculty, 7 teaching faculty, and approximately 1,000 undergraduate majors, 450 masters’ students, and 160 PhD students. Members of our faculty are IEEE and/or ACM Fellows. 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.

The University at Buffalo (UB), a member of the prestigious American Association of Universities, 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. The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences has 6,000 students enrolled across 9 academic departments. Recently established Centers of Excellence such as Sustainable Manufacturing and Advanced Robotic Technologies (SMART), RENEW and Global Health as well as ISTL and DoD’s UTC Tier 1 Center on Transportation Informatics provide many opportunities for multidisciplinary research collaboration across the university.

Buffalo is a city with a rapidly growing economy, eclectic neighborhoods, world-class art galleries and museums, a vibrant theater and music community, the Lake Erie waterfront, a city-wide system of parks designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, and major and minor league sports teams. The awe-inspiring Niagara Falls is just 20 minutes away. The department is located on the UB North Campus in suburban Amherst, an area that combines outstanding public schools and services with a surprisingly low cost-of-living.

University at Buffalo is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and, in keeping with our commitment, welcomes all to apply including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
