    Opportunity: Open Rank -- Klesse College of Engineering & Integrated Design, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (#8740) @ University of Texas, San Antonio (US)
    Submitted by Ryan V; posted on Friday, October 07, 2022

    The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas, San Antonio (UTSA) invites applications for open-rank tenure-track faculty positions starting in Fall 2023 in Bioinformatics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Accelerators.


    Essential Functions:
    For the Bioinformatics position, we invite applications from exceptional candidates in the areas of applications of Artificial Intelligence or machine learning techniques in research areas such as computational biology, systems biology, biomedical image analysis, and data engineering including data acquisition, storage, organization, analysis, or visualization, and other emerging areas that would complement existing strengths within the Department. The preferred candidate needs to demonstrate knowledge in cancer research, computational neuroscience, infectious disease, precision therapeutics, health disparities, and -omics data analysis. We are seeking colleagues to foster collaborative research, education, and outreach and create transdisciplinary areas of knowledge that will advance the field of neuroscience human performance at our College of Science and Biomedical Engineering at the Klesse College of Engineering and Integrated Design. This initiative is integral to the Clustered and Connected Hiring Program for Bioinformatics and will expand collaborative research from Mathematics, Neuroscience, Developmental and Regenerative Biology, and the School of Data Science. Candidates may hold joint appointments in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Information Systems, CyManII, and School of Data Science.

    For the AI accelerator position, outstanding candidates at the Assistant Professor level are invited for a position in "AI Accelerators". AI's tremendous capability depends on the development and deployment of lightweight, efficient AI models that can be executed on resource-constrained hardware. The move towards bigger models requires ever-growing datasets and compute budgets, which incur massive energy bills over the model deployment lifecycle. It is crucial to design new AI accelerators and custom hardware (eg: digital accelerators, custom ASICs, mixed-signal chip design, emerging technologies) that can support the rapid growth of the models and reduce the overall carbon footprint. Successful candidates will need to demonstrate (1) a solid research agenda, publication record, and external funding capability in AI accelerators and related areas, (2) the ability to excel in undergraduate and graduate education, and (3) a commitment to inclusion and diversity. The candidate will be also affiliated with the MATRIX AI Consortium which serves as the nexus for leading AI innovators to perform transdisciplinary research, engage in high-impact partnerships, and provide thought leadership and domain expertise to solve intractable problems in AI.'Candidates will have the opportunity to collaborate with a rich ecosystem of MATRIX partners from computer science, psychology, biomedical engineering, and neuroscience, as well as with local research organizations such as the UT Health San Antonio and Southwest Research Institute.

    • Doctorate in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, bioinformatics, or related field by the time of hire
