Chair, Department of Computer Science

The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, University at Albany seeks applicants for the position of Chair of the Department of Computer Science, with the academic rank of full professor, to begin September 2021 or January 2022. 

The successful candidate will present an established record of scholarship with demonstrated potential to lead the growth and continuing development of computer science as a member of the Dean’s leadership team. 

We are building a research-intensive College of Engineering and Applied Sciences in the tradition of the best high-caliber public programs in the country, within a diverse, comprehensive, Carnegie Research-1 university. The cornerstone of the college, the Department of Computer Science has been in existence since 1967, and provided the foundation for the establishment of our first engineering program in 2016. The College now consists of three departments: Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and (unique in the nation) Environmental and Sustainable Engineering. Programs in several other engineering disciplines are in development as the College is in an exciting period of rapid growth in both enrollments at the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as extramurally-funded research. From our location in New York’s Capital Region we engage the community, looking to inspire a more diverse generation of students to pursue careers in engineering and applied sciences.  Our programs provide an education that prepares students for careers not just in the engineering sciences, but also for careers and/or postgraduate studies in many other fields, including law, medicine, finance, management, and more.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering or a closely related discipline from a college or university accredited by the U.S. Department of Education or an internationally recognized accrediting organization. Applicants must also have a strong record of funded research and demonstrated expertise in academic administrative and leadership skills and be committed to teaching, research, and service.  Applicants should demonstrate active participation in professional engineering organizations. Applicants must demonstrate their experiences and willingness to work with a culturally diverse population.

To apply, please submit a complete CV, including a list of publications, a research statement, and a teaching statement, along with the names and contact information for at least three references.  As part of the teaching statement, insights regarding remote or on-line instruction are encouraged.

The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences offers degree programs from the baccalaureate through PhD, and will do so for every discipline we launch.  For additional information on the College and its departments, please see http://www.albany.edu/ceas/.
