Washington university in Saint Louis
Multiple tenure-track/tenured faculty positions
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and the School of Medicine ( WUSM)
are jointly searching for multiple tenure-track
faculty members with outstanding records of
computing research and a serious interest in collaborative research on problems related to biology and/or medicine. Appointments may be made
wholly within CSE or jointly with the Departments
of Medicine or Pathology & Immunology.
A key initiative in the CSE Department’s strategic plan is Integrating Computing and Science.
As part of that initiative, we expect to make synergistic hires with a combined research portfolio
spanning the range from fundamental computer
science/engineering to applied research focused
on science or medicine. Specific areas of interest
include, but are not limited to:
Analysis of complex genetic, genomic, pro- ˲
teomic, and metabolomic datasets;
Theory/Algorithms with the potential for bio- ˲
Image analysis or visualization with the poten- ˲
tial for biomedical applications;
Databases, medical informatics, clinical or ˲
Computer engineering with applications to ˲
medicine or the natural sciences;
All areas of computational biology and biomed- ˲
These positions will continue a successful,
ongoing strategy of collaborative research between CSE and the School of Medicine, which
is consistently ranked among the top 3 medical schools in the United States. CSE currently
consists of 24 tenured and tenure-track faculty
members, 71 Ph.D. students, and a stellar group
of undergraduates with a history of significant
research contributions. The Department seeks to
build on and complement its strengths in biological sequence analysis, biomedical image analysis,
and biomedical applications of novel computing
architectures. Exceptional candidates conducting research in other areas of Computer Science
are also encouraged to apply.
Washington University is a private university
with roughly 6,000 full-time undergraduates and
6,000 graduate students. It has one of the most attractive university campuses anywhere, and is located in a lovely residential neighborhood, adjacent to
one of the nation’s largest urban parks, in the heart
of a vibrant metropolitan area. St. Louis is a wonderful place to live, providing access to a wealth of
cultural and entertainment opportunities without
the everyday hassles of the largest cities.
We anticipate appointments at the rank of
Assistant Professor; however, in the case of exceptionally qualified candidates appointments
at any rank may be considered. Applicants must
have a Ph.D. in computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, or a closely related field and a record
of excellence in teaching and research appropriate to the appointment level. The selected candi-
date is expected to build an externally-supported
research program, teach and mentor students at
the graduate and undergraduate levels, and foster interdisciplinary interactions with colleagues
throughout the university. Candidates who would
contribute to enhancing diversity at the departmental and university levels are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications from academic couples are welcomed and encouraged.
Qualified applicants should submit a complete application (cover letter, curriculum vita,
research statement, teaching statement, and
names of at least three references) electronically
by following the directions provided at http://cse.
wustl.edu/faculty-recruiting/. Other communications may be directed to Prof. Michael Brent, Department of Computer Science and Engineering,
Campus Box 1045, Washington University, One
Brookings Drive, St. Louis, MO 63130-4899.
