The Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland will be hiring this year.
We have three targeted positions and one open position. For readers of this blog I wanted to point out:
- One of the targeted positions is in biocomp. This could include theoretical work (in, e.g., algorithms or machine learning) with biological applications.
- A second targeted position is in databases/AI (don’t ask), but includes a call for people with interest in social networks, interpreted broadly. Once again, this could include people with theoretical interests that apply to social networks.
- The open slot is, well, open to candidates from all areas. It is a chaired position intended for people who are now at least 2 years out of graduate school. I would especially encourage people with interests in security, cryptography, and theory to apply.
Update (Sept 3): It is now official.
