Faculty Position(s) in Computer Science at
the University of Vermont

The Department of Computer Science in the College of Engineering and
Mathematical Sciences at the University of Vermont invites
applications for one (and possibly two) tenure-track faculty,
commencing with the 2006-07 academic year, at the Assistant Professor

The Department of Computer Science offers Master's and PhD programs in
the Graduate College, and undergraduate programs in the College of
Engineering and Mathematical Sciences and the College of Arts and
Sciences, as well as a joint program with the School of Business
Administration.  Our existing faculty in Computer Science are involved
in the forefront of research in computational biology, data mining,
and distributed systems, that complements University-wide initiatives
in computational sciences, energy/environment, and life sciences, and
contributes towards the college-wide spire of excellence in
Intelligent and Complex Systems in the College of Engineering and
Mathematical Sciences. Priority consideration will be given to
applicants with scholarly interests and experience that further
strengthen our existing research and teaching activities in these
three thrust areas.  Candidates for the possible second position will
need a demonstrated research interest in computational
biocomplexity. We are especially soliciting applications from scholars
who will develop innovative approaches to computer science education
geared toward preparing the national leaders. We encourage and support
faculty diversity, thus, the successful candidates will have an
understanding and commitment to diversity.

Founded in 1791, the University of Vermont is considered a public ivy
and is consistently ranked as one of the top public universities in

and enjoys a panoramic setting 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 and recreational activities. There are ample opportunities
for interactions with local industries. The College of Engineering and
Mathematical Sciences is in a significant growth mode, poised to
explode onto the national scene, and the new faculty members are
expected to be instrumental in this process.

Candidates should have an earned doctorate in an appropriate
discipline, a proven record of scholarly activities and the ability to
teach multiple courses in a traditional computer science undergraduate
curriculum. Successful candidates will be expected to make significant
and balanced contributions to both teaching and research, including
the development of a nationally-respected and externally funded
research program. Current teaching responsibilities typically consist
of three computer science courses per year with average enrollments of
25 students.
