Please see appended the ad for multiple positions at the University of
Vermont in CS. The opening(s) in cybersecurity should be of particular
interest to types subscribers, given our interest in researchers studying
language-based and formal approaches to security. Note that a cluster hire
in any stated area of interest (including cybersecurity) is possible.
Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions, and consider

Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science
University of Vermont

The College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) at the
University of Vermont (UVM) is seeking applications for four tenure-track
faculty positions in Computer Science and Complex Systems, with a Fall 2017
start date. These positions will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, or
Associate Professor with tenure for outstanding candidates already at that
rank. We seek candidates with active research in one or more of the
following areas:

   - Cybersecurity, especially in languages and verification, or
   applications of machine learning or complex systems approaches to
   - Computational Intelligence, broadly defined to include data mining,
   machine learning, data science, bio-inspired approaches, and Deep Learning,
   with broad potential for applications to Big Data in areas such as biology,
   medicine, cybersecurity, social science, sociotechnical systems, and/or
   environmental science.
   - Complex Systems, modeling and/or analysis of emergent phenomena allied
   with data-driven empirical work, ideally with applications in biology,
   medicine, cybersecurity, the social sciences, sociotechnical systems,
   and/or environmental science.
   - Computational Biology, computational approaches to the study of
   biological systems such as in genomics, proteomics, phylogenetics,
   biological pathways or networks, etc.

Ideally, potential for synergies between candidates should be evident,
and *cluster
hires focused on some subset of the above topics are possible. Existing
teams of collaborators are encouraged to apply.* At least two of the
positions will have primary appointments in Computer Science; the other two
could have primary appointments in Computer Science, Mathematics,
Statistics, or Engineering (Civil, Environmental, Electrical, Mechanical,
or Bioengineering), depending on the qualifications and desires of the
candidates. We are particularly interested in candidates who would interact
closely with researchers in the post-disciplinary Vermont Complex Systems
Center and/or the UVM College of Medicine.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field, a strong research record
with excellent potential for external funding, and the potential to
supervise masters and doctoral students. Postdoctoral experience is
preferred. Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the
undergraduate and graduate teaching mission of their primary unit and
ideally also participate in transdisciplinary graduate education in Complex
Systems & Data Science.
The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and
actively encourages applications from women, veterans, and people from
diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. To that end, candidates
must provide a diversity impact statement as part of the application
detailing how they will further the diversity of CEMS through their
teaching, research, and/or service at UVM.

The University of Vermont <http://www.uvm.edu/>, established in 1791, is a
comprehensive research university with a current enrollment of 12,000+
undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. The scientific and academic
environments in CEMS, and throughout UVM, are dynamic, highly
collaborative, and multi-disciplinary. UVM has state of the art core
facilities, including the Vermont Advanced Computing Center
<http://www.uvm.edu/~vacc/> and the Advanced Genome Technologies Core
and offers generous benefits packages, including health, dental, retirement
contributions, and tuition remission.

The University is located in beautiful Burlington, Vermont, about 90 miles
south of Montreal. Burlington is consistently ranked as one of the best
small cities in America for quality of living, and features year-round
outdoor recreation and cultural events. Greater Burlington has a population
of approximately 150,000 and enjoys a panoramic setting on Lake Champlain,
bordered by the Adirondack and Green Mountains.

The applicant must submit a cover letter identifying his or her specific
area(s) of expertise and which department(s) they would prefer a primary
appointment in, a current curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching
philosophy, a detailed statement of research interests, the diversity
statement described above, and names of at least three people who can
provide letters of reference, at least one of which who can comment on
teaching. All application materials must be submitted online at the UVM
jobs website <http://www.uvmjobs.com/postings/21433>, position #005140.
Applicants are also encouraged to create a Google Scholar profile.
Inquiries may be addressed to the Search Committee Chairperson, Dr. Chris
Danforth (Chris.Danforth at uvm.edu). Applications will be accepted until
filled; review of applications will begin on December 1, 2016.
