  Stevens Institute of Technology invites nominations and applications for
The David & GG Farber Distinguished Chair in Computer Science. We seek a

be a senior academic leader. The Chair holder will also serve as the
Director of the Department of Computer Science, and will assume a

to further enhance our national and international impact in computer
science education, research, and service.

The ideal candidate will have an exceptional record of achievement in one
of the areas of Computer Science in which Stevens possesses unique
strengths - computer security; visual computing; and machine learning for
big data. The candidate should also have a demonstrated interest in working
at the intersection of computer science and society, with the ability to
lead research and educational programs that not only advance the field but
also address the impact of these advances on society at large.

The candidate will have demonstrated the qualities of leadership and
innovation, and will be eligible for a tenured academic appointment at the
rank of Professor.

The Computer Science department is one of the most vibrant academic
departments at Stevens, with 17 full-time faculty and numerous
distinguished adjuncts drawn from nearby research centers. Nearly all of
the faculty have extensive externally-funded research programs with federal
agencies including NSF, NSA, DHS, NIH, and others. The department hosts a
National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education,
and a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance
Research, both designated by NSA. The department has an undergraduate
enrollment of approximately 200 students, and more than 300 graduate
