The Department of Computer Science at Old Dominion University is seeking a full-time tenure-track faculty member with expertise in cybersecurity.  We are especially interested in those who are interdisciplinary, applying cybersecurity to other application domains, and those who apply AI, machine learning, and deep learning techniques in cybersecurity.  Outstanding candidates in other areas of computer science will also be considered.  The appointment is expected to be made at the Assistant Professor rank with an anticipated start date of July 2022. At the time of appointment, the candidate must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in computer science or related discipline. 

Requirements are the potential for success in teaching, research, and obtaining external research grants. Consideration will also be given to candidates demonstrating a potential for collaboration with the current Computer Science faculty or for inter-disciplinary collaboration with other researchers at ODU.

The Department of Computer Science currently has 20 tenured and tenure-track faculty, 9 teaching faculty, and several adjunct faculty. The faculty has research grant support from agencies such as NSF, NIH, NASA, NEH, the Mellon Foundation, DoD, and DoE.  ODU Computer Science ranks in the top 25% in terms of R&D expenditures among Computer Science departments.

Current research areas span a wide range, with established strengths in high performance scientific computing, data science, bioinformatics, parallel mesh generation, real-time medical image computing, web science, mobile computing, cyber-physical systems, and large-scale video analytics (see http://cs.odu.edu/ for more information).  A vibrant graduate program enrolls 150 graduate students (50 Ph.D. and 100 M.S.) and the undergraduate program has more than 800 majors. Excellent collaborative research opportunities are available at ODU’s Center for Cybersecurity Education & Research, and at nearby NASA Langley Research Center, DoE’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, National Institute of Aerospace, Eastern Virginia Medical School and Sentara Hospital with state-of-the-art operating room suite for image guided surgery, and the Virginia Modeling Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC).

Located in Norfolk, Virginia, Old Dominion University (www.odu.edu) is a state-supported Carnegie Doctoral/High Research Activity institution with approximately 24,000 students and 900 full-time faculty.  Norfolk is a culturally-rich, historic city and a major international maritime center in Hampton Roads, a seven-city metropolitan area of over 1.5 million people.
