The University of Kansas (KU) Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) seeks outstanding individuals for a full time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Computer Science with a focus on Programming Languages. Successful candidates are expected to contribute to the development of academic programs and contribute to the research community. Applicants are expected to have an earned doctorate, or equivalent, in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or a closely related field at the time of appointment.
Applicants are expected to develop and sustain a research program focusing on any area related to programming languages and/or static analysis, including but not limited to: type systems; language semantics; automated software engineering; program analysis; partial evaluation; symbolic execution; and model checking. Application areas including high-assurance systems; resiliency; trustworthy systems; and secure systems are particularly desirable. Applicants pursuing research in areas that are synergistic with KU's recent Research Rising efforts on Securing Our Worlds: Physical, Digital, Social (https://research.ku.edu/news/kus-research-rising-awards-will-address-cri...) are preferred.
EECS is the largest department in the KU School of Engineering with 36 faculty members and a research volume of over $6 million per year. Faculty engage in research projects across multiple areas of interest through the department, the Institute for Information Sciences (I2S), the Center for Remote Sensing and Integrated Systems (CReSIS), and the KU Medical Center. The EECS department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, and interdisciplinary computing. The department has approximately 850 undergraduate and 200 graduate students. The KU School of Engineering has added new faculty lines over a five-year period and has expanded research and teaching facilities.
The University of Kansas School of Engineering (SoE), the EECS Department, and I2S strongly value diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB). We seek candidates who can contribute to fostering an inclusive culture.
