Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in the School of Computing

The School of Computing at Clemson University invites applications from a culturally diverse pool of candidates for positions in its three academic units representing a broad cross-section of computing and its applications: the Division of Computer Science (CS), the Division of Human-Centered Computing (HCC), and the Division of Visual Computing (VC). Preference will be given to candidates at the rank of Assistant Professor, though all ranks will be considered. CS prefers applicants with interest in machine learning, software engineering, and security. HCC invites applicants whose work demonstrates strong potential impact in any area of human-centered computing. VC invites applicants with areas of interest such as computer graphics, computer vision, animation, simulation, motion, human modeling, game development, digital production, visualization, robotics, and perceptual methods.

The school includes 42 faculty, of which 31 are tenured or tenure-track. It enrolls 750+ undergraduate and 250+ graduate students. The School offers BA and BS degrees in Computer Science, BS in Computer Information Systems, MS in Computer Science, MFA and MS in Digital Production Arts, PhD in Computer Science, PhD in Human-Centered Computing, and PhD and MS in Biomedical Data Science & Informatics.

Clemson is the public land grant institution of South Carolina and is classified in the highest research category by the Carnegie Foundation. Clemson enrolls nearly 24,000 students, including over 5,000 ethnic minorities and 1,500 international students. In Fall 2017, Clemson has over 18,600 undergraduate and 4,800 graduate students. Research and economic development activities are enhanced by public-private partnerships at three innovation campuses and six research and education centers located throughout South Carolina. Clemson University is ranked 23rd among public national universities by U.S. News & World Report. We are fully committed to a culturally diverse faculty and student body.

Successful candidates should have an earned doctorate by the start date of August 15th, 2018 in computer science, human-centered computing, or a related area. Rank will be commensurate with qualifications. We value diversity and thus strongly encourage applications from exceptional scholars who can also contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community through research, teaching, and service.

The anticipated start date is August 15, 2018, though an earlier date is possible. Application review will begin November 15, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should upload a cover letter, current vitae, research statement, teaching statement and the names and addresses of three references to: (Computer Science) (Visual Computing) (Human-Centered Computing)

Applicants whose interests overlap divisions are encouraged to submit separate applications to each appropriate division for maximum consideration.
