The School of Computer Science in the Gallogly College of Engineering at the University of Oklahoma (OU) is seeking applications for two tenured/tenure-track faculty positions:

1)     HPC: Tenured/tenure-track faculty position in high-performance computing (HPC) emphasizes meteorological applications, including but not limited to numerical modeling of weather and climate focused on seasonal-to-sub-seasonal predictions, modeling, and satellite-data mining, and remote sensing, retrieval, and optimization.

2)     Cybersecurity: Tenured/tenure-track faculty position with demonstrated research skills in one or more cybersecurity areas to work at our University's Schusterman Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. More specifically, we are looking for candidates with research experience in cybersecurity at the associate or full professor level. This position is a leadership position and will have an additional role as an Associate Director who will lead our program's ongoing expansion at OU's campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

For both the positions above, we seek candidates whose research, teaching, and service have prepared them to be integral contributors to the advancement of our inclusive and diverse communities.

The School of Computer Science has strong collaborative research relationships within the Gallogly College of Engineering and with research groups in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences, the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy, and the College of Arts and Sciences, including the National Science Foundation Artificial Intelligence Institute for Research on Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography. The School of Computer Science offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science, and in conjunction with the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, M.S. degrees in Data Science and Analytics. More information regarding our programs and their strengths can be found at www.ou.edu/coe/cs.

As Colleges within the University, we join the University's commitment to achieving a diverse, equitable, and inclusive university community by embracing each person's unique contributions, background, and perspectives. The University recognizes that fostering an inclusive environment for all, with particular attention to the needs of historically marginalized populations, is vital to the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our institutional mission. This enhances the OU experience for all students, faculty, staff, and the communities we regularly engage with. Thus, we seek candidates who contribute to fostering an inclusive culture in all aspects of faculty responsibility, including the classroom, the academic community, and their professional commitments.
