Associate/Full Professor position in Visualization at the University of Utah
The Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah is growing and pursuing multiple new faculty hires over the next 3 years. These hires will expand the core research expertise at the SCI Institute, further enhance its strong research reputation in scientific, information, and biomedical visualization; image and data analysis; and interdisciplinary scientific computing. A major goal is to attract new partnerships across the University and beyond. Candidates whose research expertise integrates social and technical aspects are of particular interest, as are candidates who can contribute to the University’s diversity.
This specific recruitment is for a tenure track faculty position at the Full or Associate Professor level in visualization. While we will consider all areas of visualization, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise and an established research record in scientific visualization. Successful candidates are expected to align with and complement the SCI Institute’s core research thrusts, i.e., scientific, information, and biomedical visualization; image and data analysis; and interdisciplinary scientific computing. The candidate should advance the SCI Institute’s goals of multidisciplinary and translational impacts. Candidates should have earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field and will have an appropriate academic home within a department in the College of Engineering, Medicine or Science.
All candidates are invited to submit a curriculum vitae; a cover letter containing a description of professional experience (including scientific accomplishments, leadership responsibilities and 3 references), a research plan (up to 3 pages); teaching strategy (up to 1 page) directly to the University of Utah HR. This research should fit in the context of the SCI Institute’s mission of multidisciplinary bridge building (http://www.sci.utah.edu/the-institute/bridges.html).
