Faculty Positions, Computer Science, Clemson University

The Division of Computer Science in the School of Computing at Clemson University invites applicants for tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor. Persons with exceptional qualifications may be considered at a higher rank. We are especially interested in persons specializing in networking, cloud computing, and security, although *highly qualified candidates in all areas* that meet our goals of growing collaborative and multi-disciplinary research will also be considered, especially those complementary to our areas of current research strength in data-intensive and scientific computing, networking and sensor networks, and software engineering.

The School of Computing has 42 faculty members, more than 400 undergraduate majors, and over 200 graduate students collectively across its three divisions: Computer Science, Visual Computing, and Human-Centered Computing. The School offers B.A., B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science, a Ph.D. degree in Human Centered Computing, an M.F.A. degree in Digital Production Arts, a B.S. degree in Computer and Information Science, and an interdisciplinary program in Systems Engineering.

Clemson University is located in Clemson, South Carolina, a small college town on beautiful Lake Hartwell at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, conveniently situated within a two-hour drive from both Atlanta and Charlotte. Clemson is the land grant university of South Carolina and has an enrollment of approximately 20,000. U.S. News & World Report has ranked Clemson in the Top 25 nationally among public universities for the past four years, and Clemson ranks number 8 among U.S. public universities in supercomputing. Clemson is entering a period of exciting change and anticipates growing the faculty significantly over the next five years in a number of strategic growth areas, including applied ecology, environmental, and geosciences, applications of medicine and health IT, and collaborative research with industrial partners in South Carolina’s manufacturing industry, including the automotive industry. Demonstrated interest and background in these areas will also be considered as part of this search.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related discipline. Electronic applications, including names of three references, a teaching statement, and a research statement explaining relevance to the search focus, should be sent to as a single PDF attachment. Links to papers and demonstration videos are encouraged. We will begin accepting and reviewing applications immediately. All application materials received by January 31, 2013 will be given guaranteed consideration; however, the search will continue until a suitable candidate is found.
