The University of New Mexico
Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science invites applications for one or more full-time positions at the level of Assistant Professor. An Assistant Professor hire will be a probationary appointment leading to a tenure decision. Appointments at Associate and Full Professor ranks will be considered for extraordinary candidates. Applicants from all areas of computer science will be considered, but preference will be given to candidates in intelligent systems (for example artificial intelligence, machine learning and data mining) or cyber-security. We are a strongly interdisciplinary department and are particularly interested in applicants pushing the boundaries of computer science with other fields.
The Department of Computer Science is committed to excellence in both undergraduate and graduate education offering a CAC ABET accredited BS degree program, as well as MS and PhD programs. With approximately 140 undergraduate and 120 graduate students, we support both a strong core of computer science and interdisciplinary education through programs such as the Program in Interdisciplinary Biological & Biomedical Science (PIBBS) and the Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media (IFDM) collaboration.
The Department has sixteen tenure-track faculty with research expenditures over $3.2M per year, through grants from agencies including NSF, NIH, DARPA, ARO, NSA and DOE. We are a collegial and friendly department at a dynamic and exciting stage of growth. We enjoy strong research collaborations with the Santa Fe Institute, and Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories. Our faculty push the boundaries of interdisciplinary research through numerous collaborations with other UNM schools, departments and research centers.
