The School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering (SICE) at Indiana University (IU) Bloomington invites applications for multiple tenure-track assistant professor positions beginning in Fall 2018, as part of the IU Precision Health Initiative. Duties include research, teaching, and service. Future colleagues will be part of an interdisciplinary research team investigating the biological, environmental, and physical attributes that impact disease. IU has invested $120 million to transform medicine and the delivery of health interventions in Indiana.

Applications are sought in four areas:
• Environmental sensing for health: candidates with experience with personal health sensing – mobile, on-body, or ambient – with emphasis on generating, analyzing, and/or visualizing human generated data
• Agent-oriented machine learning and artificial intelligence with emphasis on probabilistic inference from complex and heterogeneous biomedical and health data
• High-performance computing architectures and systems and Big Data analytics for bioengineering and health/medical science
• Computational systems biology, at a single-cell or multi-cell level, with emphasis on statistical and computational aspects as well as emerging subfields of potential significance in health applications

SICE is the first school of its kind and among the largest in the country, with unsurpassed breadth. Its mission is to excel and lead in research, education, and outreach spanning and integrating the breadth of computing, IT and modern engineering. It includes over 110 tenure-line faculty, 1200 graduate students, and 1900 undergraduate majors at IU-Bloomington. It offers doctoral degrees in Computer Science, Informatics, Information Science, and Intelligent Systems Engineering.

Bloomington is a culturally thriving college town with a moderate cost of living and the amenities for an active lifestyle. IU is renowned for its top-ranked music school, high-performance computing and networking facilities, and performing and fine arts.


Applicants should have a demonstrable potential for excellence in research and teaching and a Ph.D. in computer science, information science, statistics, engineering, or a related field, expected before August 2018. SICE also seeks candidates prepared to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education.
