University of Vermont
Faculty Positions in Computer Science

After a successful search for two faculty members in 2001, the
Department of Computer Science at the University of Vermont invites
applications for two additional tenure-track faculty, commencing with
the 2002-03 academic year.  The University of Vermont, one of the top
public national universities
(http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/college/rankings/natudoc/natudoc_pubs.htm),
is located in Burlington, Vermont.  It offers a supportive research
environment in a relatively small city that repeatedly has drawn
national attention for offering a high quality of life.  The greater
Burlington area includes 125,000 people, and is situated on the shores
of Lake Champlain between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the
Adirondack Mountains of New York.  Burlington and the surrounding area
provide an environment rich in cultural, family, and sporting
activities.  The Department of Computer Science offers programs in the
College of Engineering and Mathematics and the College of Arts and
Sciences, as well as a joint program with the School of Business
Administration.

Position 1: Associate or Assistant Professor.  Candidates in
networking and systems, software engineering, programming languages,
human-computer interaction or parallel/distributed computing are most
sought.  Candidates in any area of computer science will be considered
seriously.  Our faculty are involved in the forefront of research in
knowledge and data engineering, software engineering, and
computational sciences.  We are seeking to complement and further
strengthen our existing research and teaching activities in these
areas.

Position 2: Assistant Professor in COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY.  A new
concentration in computational biology has been established in the
Colleges of Medicine, Agricultural and Life Sciences, Engineering and
Mathematics, and Arts and Sciences.  Candidates with research
interests or experience in computational biology or bioinformatics are
invited to apply.  Through a major Department of Energy grant that
commenced in July 2000, the startup package includes summer support,
seed research grant, and reduced teaching obligations.

Candidates for either position should have a strong research record,
hold a doctorate in Computer Science or a closely related field, and
have broad teaching abilities and interests.  Current teaching
responsibilities typically consist of three computer science courses
per year with average enrollments of 25 students.  These
responsibilities will be reduced to two courses per year for the first
two years for successful position 2 candidates.  Please send a letter
