The University of Wyoming (UW) is seeking to fill three tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in Applied Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) and Big Data. These positions are part of a cluster hire in the School of Computing in partnership with other academic departments. We seek faculty hires who will catalyze interdisciplinary collaboration, attract significant external research funding, and enrich our undergraduate and graduate students’ experience. The three positions are targeted around the broad areas of (1) new tools and novel approaches for enabling applications of AI/ML and Big Data (2) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) applications of AI/ML and Big Data; (3) applications of AI/ML and Big Data in the social and behavioral sciences and humanities.
The School of Computing is a new academic unit at the University of Wyoming that focuses on the application of computing in and across all disciplines, and on delivering new academic programs that provide students with important computing and digital skills across all disciplines. The school is fundamentally interdisciplinary, using translational research to leverage new and critical computing technologies for solving grand challenge problems in science and society.
The University of Wyoming has significant resources to support research computing and data science, including a long-term collaboration with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputer Center through which a significant fraction of resources is reserved for UW use. In addition, the university hosts the Advanced Research Computing Center, the Shell 3D Visualization Center, the Innovation Wyrkshop, and the Wyoming INBRE Data Science Core.
Potential candidates should visit the Cluster Hire in Applied AI/ML and Big Data web site (https://www.uwyo.edu/SOC/people/2022-cluster-hire.html) for further information and application details. These positions will remain open until filled. Complete applications received by 11/30/22 will receive full consideration. Questions should be directed to the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Gabrielle Allen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
