Applications are invited from a tenured associate or established assistant professor in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, or Human Language Technologies (NLP/HCI/IR). Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree or its equivalent. We encourage applications from all ambitious, innovative individuals, who have demonstrated excellence in research and are becoming leaders in their fields while engaging in high-quality teaching and mentoring of diverse students. Exceptional candidates may be considered at a higher rank.
New faculty will have ample opportunities to join the many university initiatives, including the Data Science Institute (dsi.udel.edu), Cybersecurity Initiative (csi.udel.edu), and those supported by the Delaware Biotechnology Institute (www.dbi.udel.edu), Center for Bioinformatics & Computational Biology (bioinformatics.udel.edu), Institute for Financial Services Analytics (www.lerner.udel.edu/centers/ifsa), Army Combat Capabilities Development Command C5ISR Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground (c5isr.ccdc.army.mil), and Health Sciences at the STAR campus (chs.udel.edu/star/). The almost six-decade old Department is vibrant and growing, currently with 24 tenure-track, 6 teaching, and 5 research faculty members, about 130 graduate students, and 250 undergraduate students. The Department has received significant external funding, including grants from NSF, NIH, DOE, Air Force, Army, Navy, foundations, and industries.
The 7th oldest institution of higher education in this country, the University of Delaware (with 18,000+ undergraduate and 3,000+ full-time graduate students) today ranks among the nation's top 100 universities in federal R&D support for science and engineering, and among the top 50 schools of engineering nationwide. The 194,000-square-foot Harker Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory includes shared laboratories for nanofabrication and advanced materials characterization and greatly expands opportunities for interdisciplinary research and education, and the 272-acre STAR (Science, Technology and Advanced Research) campus offers even more opportunities for research, academic, and commercial development. The University is a Land-Grant, Sea-Grant, and Space-Grant institution, and its beautiful 100-acre central campus is located halfway between Washington, DC and New York City. More information about the Department and the University is available at www.cis.udel.edu and www.udel.edu/about/, respectively.

About University of Delaware
The University of Delaware has a great tradition of excellence, from our roots extending back to a small private academy started in 1743, to the research-intensive, technologically advanced institution of today. Our alumni tell our story of achievement, from our first class, which included three signers of the Declaration of Independence and one signer of the U.S. Constitution, to the more than 154,000 living Blue Hens who are making vital contributions to the world. Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his wife, Jill, are both UD alumni. The University received its charter from the State of Delaware in 1833 and was designated one of the nation’s historic Land Grant colleges in 1867. Today, UD is a Land Grant, Sea Grant and Space Grant institution. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies UD as a research university with very high research activity—a designation accorded less than 3 percent of U.S. colleges and universities. UD ranks among the nation’s top 100 universities in federal R&D support for science and engineering. A state-assisted, privately governed institution, UD offers a broad range of degree programs: 3 associate programs, 147 bachelor’s p...rograms, 119 master's programs, 54 doctoral programs, and 15 dual graduate programs through our seven colleges and in collaboration with more than 70 research centers. Our student body encompasses more than 17,000 undergraduates, more than 3,600 graduate students and nearly 800 students in professional and continuing studies from across the country and around the globe. Our distinguished faculty includes internationally known authors, scientists and artists, among them a Nobel laureate, Guggenheim and Fulbright fellows, and members of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. State-of-the-art facilities support UD's academic and public service activities. Our 146-foot coastal research vessel, Hugh R. Sharp—the most advanced in the U.S.—helps scientists across the region explore the sea. World-class figure skaters train at our High Performance Figure Skating Center. Partnerships with Nemours/A. I. du Pont Hospital for Children, Christiana Care and Thomas Jefferson University; the U.S. Army; Winterthur; Longwood Gardens and Hagley Museum offer unparalleled experiences in health sciences, defense research, art conservation, horticulture and history. The University is now transforming a 272-acre parcel, the site of a former auto assembly plant, into the Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus. Distinguished speaker series, symposia, 21 intercollegiate athletics programs and numerous intramural and club sports, more than 300 student organizations, concerts, exhibits and other arts and cultural activities enrich campus life.Thomas Jefferson once described Delaware as a "jewel" among states due to its strategic location on the East Coast, halfway between Washington, D.C., and New York City. Today, however, the location of Delaware's flagship university increasingly is invoked as "halfway between Los Angeles and London."In addition to our Georgian-inspired main campus in Newark, Del., UD has locations across the state--in Wilmington, Dover, Georgetown and Lewes. A thriving study-abroad program and expanding international partnerships further enhance our students' education as global citizens.
