The Provost of the University of Washington has launched a major effort focused on Data-Driven Discovery, with a commitment to hire several new faculty in this area. In support of this effort, we are seeking candidates for one open-rank tenured or tenure-track faculty position jointly in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering and the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington. This position will be a full-time joint appointment in both departments with precise percentages as appropriate for the candidate. The new faculty will also participate in the UW eScience Institute.
We encourage applications from exceptional candidates at the intersection of computer science and statistics, with a particular focus on machine learning and large-scale statistical analysis. We expect candidates to have a strong commitment to both research and teaching. The full-time joint position will be primarily focused on hires at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor levels (9-month service period) although individuals at senior ranks with exceptional credentials may be considered. Applicants must have earned a PhD, or foreign equivalent, by the date of appointment. All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.
The CSE and Stat departments are located less than 5 minutes apart on the Seattle campus, enabling cross department collaborations and initiatives. The Seattle area is particularly attractive given the presence of significant industrial research laboratories, a vibrant technology-driven entrepreneurial community, and spectacular natural beauty.
