MSU offers an inclusive and collaborative work environment, and welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds.  To learn more visit http://research.msu.edu/global-impact.

The Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering (CMSE) and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at Michigan State University invite applications for a tenure-system faculty position in the broad area of deep learning with a joint appointment in the two departments. Candidates must have an earned PhD in Computer Science and Engineering, Applied and Computational Mathematics, Applied Statistics or related field, with expertise in Deep Learning. The position will be filled at Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level depending on the qualifications and record of the successful candidate. The candidate is expected to establish a sustainable research program, make significant scholarly contributions to their discipline, be an effective teacher and mentor of both undergraduate and graduate students, and engage in institutional and professional service.

While exceptional candidates from all areas of deep learning will be considered, particular interest lies in individuals who seek to extend the boundaries of deep learning methods from both an algorithmic and application perspective. Improved understanding of the theoretical foundations, interpretability of these methods, and their limitations are examples of the algorithm focus, while novel application of these techniques to autonomous vehicles, inverse problems, and biomedical imaging, are examples of some potential applications.

Michigan State University is making a bold new effort by launching the CMSE department, recognizing that computational and data science is a fundamental area of research in the 21st century. The department seeks to create an interdisciplinary environment that fosters a new breed of algorithmists who will address emergent problems in science and engineering, setting the stage for computation to be on the same footing as experiment and theory in its role in scientific discovery.
