The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering (FSE) at Arizona State University (ASU) and the Biodesign Center for Biocomputation, Security and Society (CBSS) invite applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position. We are particularly interested in tenure-track applicants but will consider exceptionally strong senior candidates. The tenure home may be in any of the Fulton Schools of Engineering, although the School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering is currently the most involved in the interest areas of the search. The position is joint between FSE and the Biodesign Center for Biocomputation, Security and Society (CBSS). CBSS focuses on projects that require tight integration of biological principles and computational abstractions, emphasizing defenses against malicious behavior in natural and artificial complex systems. Areas of interest include: adaptive systems, evolutionary computation, bio-inspired AI and algorithms, computational modeling (especially immunology, evolution, and cancer), cybersecurity, and intelligent systems. Originality, fit with the Center, strong interdisciplinarity, and the potential impact of the candidate are higher priorities than specific research area.

We seek applicants who will contribute to our programs and expand collaborations between the Biodesign Institute and FSE. Located in Tempe with easy access to the outdoors and urban amenities, ASU's vibrant and innovative approaches to research and teaching are charting new paths in education and research in the public interest. Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, adopt innovative educational practices in graduate and undergraduate education, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and undertake service activities within the university, in the professional community and at a national level.

Application deadline is January 21, 2021. Applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis for a reserve pool. Applications in the reserve pool may be reviewed in the order in which they were received until the position is filled.
