Multiple Tenure-track/Tenured Faculty
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 long term interest in scientific and/or
biomedical problems. 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:
˲ Databases, medical informatics, clinical or
˲ Theory/Algorithms with the potential for biomedical applications
˲ Analysis of complex genetic, genomic, pro-teomic, and metabolomic datasets
˲ Image analysis or visualization with the potential for biomedical applications
˲ Computer engineering with applications to
medicine or the natural sciences
˲ Other areas of computational biology or computational science
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
