KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY
Department of Computing and Information Sciences
The department of Computing and Information Sciences (CIS) at Kansas State University invites applications for multiple tenure-track positions in cybersecurity at all levels (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor), beginning in Fall 2016. While the focus is on systems-oriented security, significant intersection with one or more of the following fields is a plus: cyber-physical systems, language-based security, system and critical infrastructure verification, mobile and ubiquitous computing, bio-security and human-computer interaction. Outstanding candidates will be considered for several open endowed positions. Women and members of under-represented groups are highly encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will demonstrate commitment to both teaching and research. A doctorate degree in computer science or related disciplines is required; salary will be commensurate with qualifications.
Kansas State University is committed to the growth and excellence of the department of Computing and Information Sciences. The CIS department offers a stimulating environment for research and teaching, and has several ongoing collaborative projects involving researchers in different areas of computer science as well as physics, psychology, anthropology, and other engineering and science departments. The department offers BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees, has a faculty of 20, and over 90 graduate and 450 undergraduate students. The department is currently transitioning to a new state-of-the-art facility in the College of Engineering complex (http://www.engg.ksu.edu/phaseiv/) that offers modern facilities supporting research, teaching, high-performance networking, and supercomputing. The department has classrooms dedicated to multimedia and collaborative study, and several laboratories for cyber-security, high-assurance systems, software analysis, embedded systems, adaptive systems, computational engineering and science, and data mining. The College of Engineering is undergoing rapid expansion and will be hiring 35 additional faculty over the next five years. Kansas State is also home to the Biosecurity Research Institute and is the site of the new National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility.
