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. Appointments at all ranks will be considered, with a preference for candidates at the assistant professor level. The CS program has vibrant collaborative and interdisciplinary research efforts in artificial intelligence, computer animation and virtual environments, cyber-physical systems, distributed real-time and embedded middleware, human-systems integration, image processing, intelligent learning environments, robotics, model-integrated computing, software engineering, and trustworthy computing. Average T/TK faculty funding is ~$700k per year from NSF, NIH, DARPA, DoD, NASA, and many industry sponsors. All junior faculty members hired during the past decade have received prestigious young investigator awards, such as NSF CAREER and DARPA CSSG.

Successful candidates are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to develop vigorous programs of externally funded research. We are seeking candidates who will strengthen the CS program’s existing research areas and enhance the School of Engineering’s strategic directions in health care and medicine, security, energy and natural resources, and entertainment.

Vanderbilt University is a private, internationally renowned research university located in vibrant Nashville, Tennessee. Its 10 schools share a single cohesive campus that nurtures interdisciplinary activities. The School of Engineering currently comprises 85 tenured and tenure-track faculty, operates with an annual budget of $100 million including $60 million of externally funded research, and teaches 1,300 undergraduate and over 400 graduate students. The School of Engineering over the past decade has been on a strong upward trajectory in national and international stature and prominence, and is in the process of building infrastructure to support a significant expansion in faculty size over the next five years. In the 2013 rankings of graduate engineering programs by U.S. News & World Report, the School ranks 5th among programs with fewer than 100 faculty. With a metro population of approximately 1.5 million people, Nashville has been named 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, technology manufacturing, music production, higher education, finance, insurance, automobile production and health care management.
