Please post the following announcement to ecoop-info mailing list.


Iowa State University has launched the Presidential High Impact Hires 
Initiative to support targeted faculty hiring in areas of strategic 
importance. A cluster hire of 12 faculty in five colleges within the 
strategically important area of Big Data is included among the 29 
high-impact hires targeted in this Presidential Initiative.

As part of the initiative, the Department of Computer Science and the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences invites applications for a 
tenure-track or tenured position at the Assistant Professor, Associate 
Professor or Professor level to begin fall 2014.

We are especially interested in candidates with demonstrated track 
record in mining software repository (MSR) techniques for large-scale 
repositories. Duties for the position include undergraduate and graduate 
education; mentoring and engaging undergraduate students; developing and 
sustaining externally-funded research; graduate student supervision and 
mentoring; and professional and institutional service.

The Computer Science department currently consists of 29 full-time 
tenure-track faculty members and 5 lecturers. We offer B.S., M.S., and 
Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science and B.S. in Software Engineering (the 
Software Engineering degree is jointly administered by the departments 
of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering). We also 
participate in a B.S. degree in Bioinformatics and Computational 
Biology. We are active in interdepartmental graduate programs in 
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, Human-Computer Interactions, 
and Information Assurance. We have 592 B.S. students, 35 M.S. students, 
and 70 Ph.D. students. Almost all Ph.D. students are supported by 
research or teaching assistantships. We have strong research and 
educational programs in Algorithms and Complexity, Artificial 
Intelligence, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, Databases, Data 
Mining, Information Assurance, Programming Languages, Multimedia 
Systems, Operating Systems and Networks, Robotics, and Software 
Engineering. Our department has over $5.5 million in active research 
grants. With the above interdisciplinary activities included, we 
contribute to active research and training grants totaling approximately 
$20 million.

A dynamic faculty, a moderate teaching load (typically 3 courses per 
year with one course reduction for active researchers and possible 
further reductions for junior faculty), a strong graduate program, and a 
well-funded research program provide an excellent academic environment. 
In addition, cutting-edge research and education are nurtured through 
interdisciplinary interactions facilitated by the Laurence H. Baker 
Center for Bioinformatics and Biological Statistics, the Center for 
Integrative Animal Genomics, the Cyber Innovation Institute, the 
Information Assurance Center, the Department of Energy's Ames 
Laboratory, and the Virtual Reality Application Center.
