Faculty Position[edit]

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 broadly interpreted areas: visualization, data analysis, visual analytics, and large-scale data management. 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 successful candidate will have excellent opportunities to initiate interdisciplinary research and educational collaborations with the diverse institutes and departments within NYU, including NYU Courant, NYU Stern, and the NYU Medical and Dental schools, and to play a major role in establishing new programs in Bioengineering and Data Science.

Our department has existing research strengths in several relevant areas, including data management, visualization, cyber security, web and text search, content distribution and distributed systems, machine learning, and HCI. We have just moved into a new building that significantly expands our research space, with a generous allocation for a state-of-the-art visualization lab. The newly established Game Innovation Lab provides excellent facilities for game and HCI related research and education, and nicely complements the visualization facilities for a unique environment.

New York City brings unique opportunities for visualization and data science researchers, including a large number of established companies with large-data needs such as banks, media companies, and data integrators, as well as a rich environment of technology startups. It is also a hotbed for research in urban technologies, much of which can benefit from advanced data analysis and visualization.

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 cssearch@poly.edu.

Polytechnic is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
