informal inquires.

The Department of Computer Science in the College of Arts and Science at
American University invites applications for two full-time, tenure-line
positions beginning August 1, 2020. One of the positions is at the rank of
Assistant or Associate Professor. The other position is at the rank of
Associate or Full Professor. Applicants should have a PhD or an anticipated
PhD completion by August 2020 in the field of Computer Science. Depending
on qualifications, the appointee to this position may be recommended for
tenure at the time of hiring. We are looking for candidates who are
strongly committed to excellence in scholarly research, are effective
teachers, and are excited at the prospect of joining a growing department
where they will be able to make their mark and join a friendly, collegiate
and highly accomplished team. Preference will be given to candidates with a
record of high-quality scholarship. The committee will consider candidates
in all areas of research with emphases on individuals engaged in large
scale projects that make use of high performance computing tools and on
individuals engaged in cybersecurity projects. Other areas of research of
interest to the department include Natural Language Processing, Deep
Learning, Database Management, and Networking. Excellent candidates in
other research areas, especially with domains of applications compatible
with those active at American University, will also be considered as we
strongly welcome researchers who ignore traditional disciplinary
boundaries. In addition to scholarship and teaching, responsibilities will
include participation in department, school and university activities.
Salary and benefits are competitive. Review of applications will begin by
November 1.
