EECS Faculty Searches
(updated September 2, 2016)
The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Vanderbilt University is seeking candidates for two tenured/tenure-track (T/TK) faculty positions in Computer Science or closely related areas. Appointments at all ranks will be considered; we prefer to fill at least one position at the assistant professor level. Successful candidates are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to develop and grow vigorous programs of externally funded research. Areas of focus for this search are:
(1) Computer Assisted Surgery and Interventions. We seek world-class expertise in medical image and signal analysis, computer vision, and medical robotics. The successful candidate will expand the CS curriculum in these areas and have a strong interest in translational research, collaboration with the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and will be expected to engage with the Vanderbilt Institute in Surgery and Engineering (VISE: http://www.vanderbilt.edu/vise). VISE’s mission is the creation, development, implementation, clinical evaluation and translation of methods, devices, algorithms, and systems designed to facilitate surgical and interventional processes and their outcome.
(2) Big Data/Data Science/AI. We seek world-class expertise in broadly defined areas of data science, machine learning, data mining, visualization, computer vision, and/or artificial intelligence. The Vanderbilt CS program provides a unique, collaborative, and interdisciplinary research environment. New trans-institutional programs are creating opportunities for research on issues of broad significance that create and extend collaborations across multiple fields.
Applications should be submitted on-line at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7736. For more information, please visit our web site: http://engineering.vanderbilt.edu/eecs . Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning November 1, 2016 with telephone interviews beginning December 1, 2016. The final application deadline is January 15, 2017.

Appointments at all ranks will be considered. Successful candidates are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to develop and grow vigorous programs of externally funded research. The areas of focus in this search include nanoscale optics, nano-electronics, computational nanoscience, new nanoscale materials, and/or nano-energy. The successful candidate will expand the EE curriculum in these areas, and work with faculty, staff and students in the Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE) to stretch the boundaries of nanoscience to advance our multi-disciplinary research, education, and outreach missions. VINSE recently constructed a new, state-of-the-art cleanroom and high-end instrumentation suite with expected occupancy in Spring 2017.

Ranked in the top 15 nationally, Vanderbilt University is a private, internationally recognized research university located on 330 park-like acres 1.5 miles from downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Its 10 distinct schools share a single cohesive campus that nurtures interdisciplinary activities. The university has a student body of over 12,500 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, including 25.3% minority students and 1,169 international students from 84 countries. The School of Engineering currently comprises 90 tenured and tenure-track faculty, operates with an annual budget of over $100 million, including $70 million from externally funded research, and serves over 1,400 undergraduate and nearly 500 graduate students. In the 2017 rankings of graduate engineering programs by U.S. News & World Report, the School ranks in the top three among programs with fewer than 100 faculty (behind Caltech and Harvard) and has risen steadily in the rankings over the past decade.
With a metro population of approximately 1.8 million people, Nashville has been named the “It” city byTime magazine, one of the 15 best U.S. cities for work and family by Fortune magazine, was ranked as the #1 most popular U.S. city for corporate relocations by Expansion Management magazine, and was named by Forbes magazine as one of the 25 cities most likely to have the country's highest job growth over the coming five years. Major industries include tourism, printing and publishing, manufacturing technology, music production, higher education, finance, insurance, automobile production and health care management.
