The Department of Computer Science, in the College of Science at Utah State University, invites applications for up to two Assistant Professor positions at the Logan campus. These are academic year (nine-month), tenure-track positions. The relative weights assigned to domains of responsibility are 50% in research or creative endeavors, 40% in teaching, and 10% in service. The department is interested in strengthening and expanding its focus in Machine Learning, Computer Security, Software Engineering, Quantum Computing, and Human Computer Interaction, but strong applicants in other areas may be considered. The anticipated start date is August 2020.

Applicants will be expected to create a research program that is consistently productive, sustainable, and nationally recognized for excellence. Applicants will also be expected to contribute effectively to the instructional mission of the university; the normal teaching load in the Computer Science Department is three semester-length courses per year, with a reduced teaching load (one course in fall semester and one course in spring semester) in the first two years. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate effectiveness in service to the operations and governance of the University, to their professional societies, or to the outreach and extension mission of the University.
