Position description

The Department of Computer Science in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) Invites applicants for a tenure-track/tenured faculty position at the assistant, associate, or full rank beginning July 1, 2023. The Department is interested in individuals with a strong research background in bioinformatics, broadly defined to be in the general area of applying computational and/or machine learning methods to study biology and/or medicine.

The Computer Science Department's curricula, faculty, and research focus on an array of topics including computer architecture, system software, networking, and distributed computing, data and information systems, machine learning and artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, security, and privacy, ubiquitous computing, and computer graphics.

At UCI, ICS brings together three unique departments (Computer Science, Informatics, and Statistics), thus strategically positioning itself to meet the technical and social challenges of computing and information systems in the coming decades. The U.S. News and World Report 2018 Best Global Universities ranking identifies UCI as a top 75 university in computer science and one of the top 30 universities for computer science in the United States. ICS is one of only five computing-focused schools among the Association of American Universities (AAU) members. Our 90+ faculty members include 2 NAE Members, 14 ACM Fellows, 11 IEEE Fellows, 14 AAAS Fellows, and many other national award winners.

For eight consecutive years the University of California, Irvine has been named a top 10 “Coolest School” by Sierra magazine for our innovative sustainable practices. UCI is also ranked as a top ten public university by U.S. News and World Report and has been identified by the New York Times as No. 1 among U.S. universities that do the most for low-income students. UCI is located in Orange County, 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 45 miles south of Los Angeles. Irvine is one of the safest communities in the U.S. and offers a very pleasant year-round climate, numerous recreational and cultural opportunities, and one of the highest-ranked public school systems in the nation.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in computer science, bioinformatics, or a closely related field. Completed applications containing a cover letter, curriculum vitae, all available teaching evaluations, statements on diversity, teaching, and research, three letters of recommendation, and sample research publications should be uploaded electronically at: https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/JPF07856

Applications received by January 1, 2023, will receive the fullest consideration.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.
