Faculty Cluster Hire in AI/ML and Big Data


Multiple Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Positions in Applied AI/ML and Big Data 

The University of Wyoming (UW) is seeking to fill three tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in Applied Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) and Big Data. These positions are part of a cluster hire in the School of Computing in partnership with other academic departments. We seek faculty hires who will catalyze interdisciplinary collaboration, attract significant external research funding, and enrich our undergraduate and graduate students’ experience. The three positions are targeted around the broad areas of (1) new tools and novel approaches for enabling applications of AI/ML and Big Data; (2) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) applications of AI/ML and Big Data; (3) applications of AI/ML and Big Data in the social and behavioral sciences and humanities.  

The School of Computing is a new academic unit at the University of Wyoming that focuses on the application of computing in and across all disciplines, and on delivering new academic programs that provide students with important computing and digital skills across all disciplines. The school is fundamentally interdisciplinary, using translational research to leverage new and critical computing technologies for solving grand challenge problems in science and society.  

The University of Wyoming has significant resources to support research computing and data science, including a long-term collaboration with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputer Center through which a significant fraction of resources is reserved for UW use. In addition, the university hosts the Advanced Research Computing Center, the Shell 3D Visualization Center, the Innovation Wyrkshop, and the Wyoming INBRE Data Science Core.  

The three positions are targeted around the broad areas of

(1) new tools and novel approaches for enabling applications of AI/ML and Big Data

Partnering Academic Units and core areas of interest:

(2) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) applications of AI/ML and Big Data

Partnering Academic Units and core areas of interest:  

  • Department of Atmospheric Sciences: Advance research of atmospheric processes and prediction by applying new and novel techniques to numerical weather and climate modeling and/or satellite algorithm development and data analysis.  
  • Department of Botany: Computational evolutionary biology  
  • Department of Chemical Engineering: Focus on computational tools such as ab initio methods, molecular dynamics simulations, machine learning, high throughput methods, mesoscale methods, thermodynamic models, and process modeling. This position will be a significant step in strengthening computational science research and multiscale modeling (ab initio, atomistic, mesoscale, continuum, data science) of next generation materials and biological systems.  
  • Department of Physics and Astronomy: Time domain or multi-messenger astrophysics with a focus on rapid data processing and decision making.
  • Department of Zoology and Physiology: Applications of AI/ML to animal behavior, evolutionary biology, neurobiology, population and community ecology, physiology, and wildlife and fisheries ecology. 
  • Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources: Edge computing and AI applications to natural resources including but not limited to wildlife trafficking and monitoring, water resource allocation and prediction, sustainable development and growth, climate change mitigation and energy use optimization and early wildfire detection. 

(3) applications of AI/ML and Big Data in the social and behavioral sciences and humanities

Partnering Academic Units and core areas of interest:  

These positions will remain open until filled.  Complete applications received by 11/30/22 will receive full consideration. Questions should be directed to the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Gabrielle Allen gdallen@uwyo.edu 1(307)766-5299.

The University of Wyoming is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer, and is committed to equality in hiring opportunities, and to diversity of its workforce and students.
