The Computer Science (CS) Department at the University of Idaho (UI) College of Engineering (CoEngr) seeks 3 faculty at the rank of Assistant/Associate Professor in either Moscow or Idaho Falls with emphasis in 1) large-scale database management (big data), data analytics and data mining, machine learning, visualization, and/or high performance computing or 2) Expertise in cybersecurity is sought for industrial control systems including embedded systems security, computer and network security, or digital forensics, reverse engineering hardware/software, malware analysis, specialized experience with power and energy systems, operations technology (OT). Startup funding and research support will be extended to help the new appointees establish a successful career and develop an externally funded research program. The successful candidates will have an earned PhD in CS or a closely related field, demonstrated strong commitment to research and teaching, excellent written and oral communication skills, ability to work with collaborating entities (industry, national laboratories, government and academia) and authorized to work in the US.
The Idaho Falls campus is located at University Place at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES) and the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). Teaching/advising is primarily graduate (MS and PhD) studies although video conferencing delivery of upper division undergraduate (UG) courseware to either Moscow or Coeur d'Alene may be required. The main campus in Moscow is home to nearly 12,000 students where the CS program provides BS, MS and PhD degrees and the Coeur d'Alene campus provides upper division UG courseware for the BSCS as well as CS graduate degrees. Faculty will engage and teach graduate students, mentor graduate student research and demonstrate success in scholarly pursuits (funding, publications, and presentations) toward sustaining research program funding.
Data Science and Analytics (Idaho Falls https://uidaho.peopleadmin.com/postings/15335)
We seek candidates with the ability to conduct numeral analysis, manage experimental facilities, engineer/analyze and manage (big) data, utilize/innovate data visualization tools and techniques (machine learning, data mining, distributed storage and processing and/or high performance computing (HPC) and related AI data analytics techniques.
The CoEngr has received a $2.1M Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission (IGEM) grant to build educational and research capacity in Security Management of Cyber Physical Control Systems (CPCS). CPCS are the systems that underpin key sectors of our national economy, from our transportation network to our water supply to the fundamental elements of our power grid (e.g., SCADA and ICS). We seek candidates that can team with industry including Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and other universities (including Boise State University and Idaho State University) to develop products and build expertise to protect these vital systems including foster technology transfer/commercialization to strengthen and expand the workforce by delivering cyber security expertise to Idaho industry and improve the talent pipeline for computer science and engineering graduates. These faculty will become a members of the research Center for Secure and Dependable Systems (CSDS). We seek candidates with expertise in cybersecurity is sought for industrial control systems including embedded systems security, computer and network security, or digital forensics, reverse engineering hardware/software, malware analysis, specialized experience with power and energy systems, operations technology (OT).
Existing research centers of excellence include the Institute for Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Studies, National Institute for Advanced Transportation Technology, Center for Secure and Dependable Systems, Center for Modeling Complex Interactions and the Northwest Knowledge Network. A significant number of our faculty have joint appointments with INL. We are a certified National Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Information Assurance and Cybersecurity Education which is also a $3.7M NSF Scholarship for Service funded enterprise.
We highly encourage candidates from underrepresented US minority groups and/or females to apply for this position.
