The Computer Science and Engineering Department of the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU Poly) invites applications for a faculty position with research focus in one or more of the following broad areas: data and knowledge management, web search and information retrieval, computer games, or social networks and online communities.
We welcome applications at all levels with an exceptional record in research, teaching, and professional accomplishments. The rank of initial appointment will be commensurate with experience and accomplishments.
The Polytechnic Institute of NYU (formerly known as Brooklyn Poly) and New York University are in advanced stages of merger proceedings, with the goal of us becoming a school of NYU. The successful candidate will have excellent opportunities to initiate interdisciplinary research and educational collaborations with the diverse institutes and departments within NYU.
Our department has existing research strengths in several relevant areas including cyber security, web and text search, content distribution and distributed systems, machine learning, and computer interfaces. Our faculty is also involved in the recently founded Games for Learning Institute (see http://g4li.nyu.edu/), which engages faculty from a number of schools at NYU. We are looking for a faculty member that would significantly strengthen and complement our current research efforts. Areas of particular interest are
(i) principles and architectures of computer games,
(ii) mining, search, and analysis of the web and of social networks and online worlds,
(iii) data engineering and data or text mining with applications in security, electronic commerce, or the web, or (iv) research programs that combine several of the listed themes in innovative ways.
The Computer Science and Engineering Department (CSE) of the Polytechnic Institute of NYU has a strong faculty with a vibrant research program and strong course offerings, with existing strengths including security, networks and distributed systems, algorithms, and web search technology.
Our PhD program is one of a handful of programs ranked by US News and World Report with fewer than 15 research faculty. We are located in Downtown Brooklyn and a 5-minute subway ride from Lower Manhattan. See www.poly.edu for more information.
Review of applications will begin in January 2010 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, and the names and addresses of three referees, as a PDF attachment, to firstname.lastname@example.org
