REVISED: Application Review Date
The Computer and Information Science (CIS) Department at the University of Oregon invites applications for Professor/Department Head. We seek an outstanding scholar who will be excited to head a computer science department in a strong public research university. A number of senior faculty have recently or will soon retire, creating an opportunity for regeneration through multiple hires over the next several years. The department is currently developing and implementing a strategic plan for increased research prominence in the context of a college-wide plan for excellence.
We seek an individual with strategic vision and leadership abilities. The ideal candidate will be a prominent scholar with a sustained record of publication and research funding in an area of software or intelligent systems that complements existing research strengths of the department. We are looking for an innovative thinker who is eager to advance interdisciplinary scholarship, build bridges between academia and industry, mentor faculty to achieve excellence, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and communicate the intellectual excitement of computer science and its broad, evolving role in contemporary society. A PhD in Computer Science or a closely related field is required.
