MSU Global Impact Initiative Logo

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at Michigan State University (MSU) invites applications for three tenure-system faculty positions, one position in the area of cyber security, one position in the area of biometrics, and one position in machine learning and related areas.

The biometrics and machine learning positions are targeted at the junior faculty level and the cyber security position at the senior level, but candidates may be considered at all ranks for these positions.

The successful candidates will be expected to develop an externally-funded interdisciplinary research program of national prominence that includes fundamental research, publications in journals and high quality conferences, and training graduate students. Multidisciplinary research is strongly encouraged and is being actively pursued by the faculty members at MSU.

Leadership is expected in the development of innovative educational programs that provide state-of-the-art knowledge to both undergraduate and graduate students. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field, with demonstrated evidence of research accomplishments, teaching skills, and ability to work effectively with other researchers within the Department and colleagues on campus.

Appointments will start in August 2016.
