Faculty Position IN Purdue computes

Purdue University has launched a new major initiative, Purdue Computes (https://www.purdue.edu/computes/), consisting of three dimensions (Computing, Physical Artificial Intelligence, and Semiconductors) that will connect faculty and students from across the institution and enable the university to advance to the forefront with unparalleled excellence at scale. As part of this initiative, Computing will add 50 new positions over the next five years. Purdue University's Department of Computer Science and Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering are hiring tenure track assistant and associate professors in all areas of Computer Science and Computer Engineering in the Colleges of Science and Engineering.

Purdue Computes offers a stimulating academic environment with active research programs in almost all areas of computing. The departments offer undergraduate programs in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, and Artificial Intelligence, as well as graduate MS and PhD programs, including a Professional MS in Information Security. For more information, see https://www.cs.purdue.edu and https://www.ece.purdue.edu. Opportunities for collaboration exist across the university; faculty have collaborations with every college in the university. Purdue is one of the nation’s leading land-grant universities, with an enrollment of over 50,000 students primarily focused on STEM subjects.
