2. UMBC invites tenure/tenure track applications in a selection of disciplines for a multi-year campus-wide and state-supported initiative to develop the UMBC Cybersecurity Institute (UCI). The UCI builds upon a strong foundation established under the UMBC Cybersecurity Center (UCYBR) over the past decade, and today comprising over thirty faculty members from six departments across all colleges at UMBC. UCI-affiliated faculty members will have a tenure/tenure-track appointment in their respective home department and are expected to collaborate across disciplines to develop as part of a cohort of new faculty members with complementary expertise in the rapidly growing field of cybersecurity.
Through this call, UCI is soliciting applications for a UCI-affiliate in the area of computer science, with research focus on Cybersecurity. CSEE will be the home department. We seek candidates who have the capacity to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the department and to UCI in teaching, mentoring, and service. This position complements other searches in the areas of theoretical quantum information science, and in public policy, and is expected to begin in or before August 2024.
The CSEE Department is research-oriented and multi-disciplinary with programs in Computer Science (CS), Computer Engineering (CE), Electrical Engineering (EE), Data Science, and Cybersecurity. Our diverse faculty (39 tenure-track, 17 teaching, and 7 research) enjoy collaboration, working across our specializations as well as with colleagues from other STEM, humanities and the arts departments, and external partners. We have more than 2,000 undergraduate CS and CE majors and more than 1,200 graduate students in our CS, CE, EE, Data Science, and Cybersecurity graduate programs. We have awarded 409 Ph.D. degrees since our establishment in 1986. Our research is supported by a growing and diverse portfolio from government and industrial sponsors with about $8M in yearly research expenditures. We work to help new colleagues be successful by providing competitive startup packages, reduced teaching loads, and active mentoring.
The College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT) at UMBC crosses the boundaries of engineering, computing, and information disciplines to develop research and educational programs that engage faculty, students, and staff from all of the disciplines. COEIT is deeply committed to the success of all of our faculty. We have formal programs including "launch committees" to encourage regular and structured mentorship for faculty to start successfully, mentoring programs to provide support in the longer term, shared services for grant finance support, grant writing and editing support, monthly gatherings in which faculty share lunch and community, and we encourage all of our faculty to participate in the university's eminent scholar mentor program to build relationships with leaders in the field beyond UMBC.
