*Open-Rank Tenure-Track Faculty Positions at the University of Illinois at
Chicago (UIC)*
Chicago, Illinois

Located in the heart of Chicago, the Computer Science Department at the
University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) invites applications for many
full-time tenure-track positions at all ranks. All candidates must have a
doctorate in Computer Science or a closely related field by the
appointment's starting date. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate
excellence in research and teach effectively at the undergraduate and
graduate levels.

We seek candidates in all areas of computing, at all levels, with special
but not exclusive interest in fields related to speech and/or natural
language processing, computer vision, programming languages and compilers,
machine learning, human-computer interaction, data science, and computer
systems. Over the next few years, we expect to hire multiple faculty in all
of those areas and many others. Applicants working at the intersection of
computer science and related disciplines are also encouraged to apply.

* * * * * * * * *
*NOTE: Visualization, virtual reality, **computer graphics, **human-computer
interaction and computer supported cooperative work are also priorities.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity to become part of the
research team at the UIC Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL). EVL,
established in 1973, enables scientific discovery through interdisciplinary
collaboration, in which computer scientists work with domain scientists and
artists to create useful and usable visualization, virtual-reality and
visual analytic tools and techniques to tackle real-world problems.  *

Applications must be submitted at https://jobs.uic.edu/, and must include a
curriculum vitae, teaching and research statements, and names and addresses
of at least three references in the online application. Links to a
professional website and Google Scholar, ResearchGate, or similar profiles
are recommended, but not required. Applicants may contact the Faculty
Search Chair at search-chair at cs.uic.edu for additional information. For
fullest consideration, apply by November 15, 2017. Applications will be
accepted until the positions are filled.

The rapidly growing department of Computer Science at UIC has 33
tenure-system faculty - 13 of whom are NSF CAREER award recipients - with
strong and broad research agendas. The department is committed to building
a diverse faculty preeminent in its missions of research, teaching, and
service to the community. Candidates who have experience engaging with a
diverse range of faculty, staff, and students, and contributing to a
climate of inclusivity are encouraged to discuss their perspectives on
these subjects in their application materials.

UIC is a major public research university (R1, according to the Carnegie
Classification of Institutions of Higher Education) with over 1,900 faculty
and over 30,000 students. UIC is committed to increasing access to
education, employment, programs and services for all. The University of
Illinois is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Minorities,
women, veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
UIC is responsive to the concerns of dual-career couples.

Chicago epitomizes the modern, livable, vibrant, and diverse city.
World-class amenities like the lakefront, arts and culture venues,
festivals, and two international airports make Chicago a singularly
enjoyable place to live. Yet the cost of living, whether in an 88th floor
condominium downtown or on a tree-lined street in one of the nation’s
finest school districts, is remarkably affordable.
