Our school has nationally and internationally known researchers in
many areas, including theoretical computer science, programming
languages, security, distributed systems, storage systems, computer
architectures, machine learning, natural language processing, AI, data
science, vision, and networking. The Baskin School of Engineering is
also home to the Statistics and the Applied Mathematics departments,
contributing to the richness of research ranging from data science to
the statistical foundations of machine learning. Nestled in a redwood
forest above the city of Santa Cruz, our beautiful campus has a long
history of embracing groundbreaking interdisciplinary work.
Our proximity to Silicon Valley, and our satellite campus there,
afford opportunities and avenues for collaboration with researchers
working in the many research and development labs in Silicon Valley,
as well as with the other San Francisco Bay Area universities.
The successful candidate is expected to develop a research program,
advise graduate students in their research area, obtain external
funding, develop and teach courses within the undergraduate and
graduate curriculum, perform university, public and professional
service, and interact broadly with the large number of researchers in
Silicon Valley industrial research and advanced development labs. The
successful candidate should be able to work with students, faculty,
and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds,
genders, and sexual orientations. A demonstrated interest in advancing
the cause of diversity, equity, and inclusion is a requirement for the
position.UC Santa Cruz values diversity, equity, and inclusion and is
committed to hiring faculty who share these values.
University of California
We seek candidates with a strong research record in computer science
and engineering; we are particularly interested in candidates with
expertise in machine learning and deep learning, as well as broadly
related fields, such as artificial intelligence, natural language
processing, vision, and data science. We also welcome applications
from researchers who apply results from machine learning and deep
learning to other fields of computer science.The Department of
Computer Science and Engineering is part of the Baskin School of
Engineering at UC Santa Cruz.
To be considered, candidates must demonstrate an understanding of the
barriers facing women and underrepresented minorities, and describe
their experience and future plans to promote equity and inclusion in
teaching, mentoring, and research. Financial and in-kind resources
will be made available to faculty who promote equity and inclusion at
UC Santa Cruz, and their work will be recognized as important
university service during the faculty promotion process.
