Cyberscience Cluster Hire
Multiple Faculty Appointments in Computation– and Data–enabled Science and Engineering
Penn State is embarking on a transformative cluster hiring initiative in cyberscience – computation- and data-enabled science and engineering – to lead through cyber-enabled innovation in interdisciplinary research. This cross-college endeavor will coordinate multiple faculty appointments to develop new functional capabilities centered on data, models and simulation for deeper insights into the critical problems in science and engineering.
We seek outstanding faculty who can work across disciplines and in a team to advance algorithms, software and theory to exploit "Big Data" and “Big Simulations” for scientific discovery and engineering design in a variety of disciplines.
We plan to make 12 tenure-track appointments at all levels from Assistant and Associate Professors through Full Professors and Endowed Chairs. We anticipate that many candidates will have joint appointments across departments and colleges. These positions feature outstanding research space, competitive start-up packages and state-of-the-art shared instrumentation for computation- and data-enabled research.
