Additional Information

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Washington State University (WSU) in Pullman, WA is significantly expanding its computer science faculty with more than ten new positions. In order to build a world-class research program in data science, we hired two new faculty in the area during the past academic year. We now invite applications for five additional permanent full-time tenure-track faculty positions with a research emphasis in data science. We are particularly interested in building interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues from across the WSU system in the university’s strategic priorities in Global Animal Health, Agriculture, Clean Technology, and Renewable Bioenergy. Furthermore, the university’s pursuit of a medical school on the Health Sciences campus in Spokane provides EECS faculty and students with excellent interdisciplinary and collaborative research and educational opportunities.

In this search, we seek to hire a faculty member at the rank of assistant professor to help build strong collaborations between EECS (The Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture) and the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health (Allen School, College of Veterinary Medicine). If appropriate, the candidate may have a joint appointment in both Schools.

New faculty hired for these positions will join 36 tenure-track faculty members in EECS and 21 faculty members in the Allen School. Both Schools have experienced rapid growth over the past three years. As of the fall of 2014, 900 undergraduate and 160 graduate students are enrolled in EECS. The Allen School focuses on graduate and post-doctoral education with primary support from the National Institutes of Health.
