The Department of Computer Science at the University of Vermont is seeking applicants for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, with duties to start in late August of 2021.  We are especially interested in applicants with expertise in one or more of the following areas: programming languages and program analysis, system security and applied cryptography, data privacy, security in social networks, or fairness in AI and data science. Ideal candidates would show strong potential for contributing to the UVM Center for Computer Security and Privacy (http://compsec.w3.uvm.edu) and collaborating with the UVM research lab for programming languages, data privacy, and information security (http://plaid.w3.uvm.edu).

The applicant must have a PhD in Computer Science or a closely-related area. Competitive applicants will possess a significant track record of research excellence as appropriate to their seniority and be capable of outstanding teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. We are especially interested in scholars who will contribute to the growth of research efforts in UVM CS by building on existing strengths and developing new collaborations, and who will mentor graduate students effectively.

The University of Vermont, established in 1791, is a comprehensive research university with a current enrollment of 12,000+ undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. The scientific and academic environments in UVM’s College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS), and throughout the UVM university community are dynamic, highly collaborative, and multi-disciplinary. Significant campus resources for research collaboration include: The Vermont Advanced Computing Core, The Vermont Complex Systems Center, The Larner College of Medicine, the Institute for Environmental Diplomacy & Security and the Gund Institute for Environment.  The University’s commitment to the growth of STEM disciplines, including Computer Science, is evidenced by the recent construction of the STEM Complex, its largest-ever capital project.

The University is located in Burlington, Vermont, about 90 miles south of Montreal. Burlington is often rated as the best small city in America for quality of living, and features year-round outdoor recreation and cultural events. Greater Burlington has a population of approximately 150,000 and enjoys a panoramic setting on Lake Champlain, bordered by the Adirondack and Green Mountains.

We are an educationally purposeful community seeking to prepare students to be accountable leaders in a diverse and changing world. Members of the University of Vermont community embrace and advance the values of Our Common Ground: Openness, Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Innovation, and Justice. The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong commitment to the ideals of accessibility, inclusiveness, and academic excellence as reflected in the tenets of Our Common Ground.
