The School of Interactive Computing (IC) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) invites applications for several anticipated tenure track faculty positions at all levels of seniority. We seek applications in the broader areas of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), including their intersections, and with an emphasis in Data and Information Visualization, Social Computing, Privacy, and theoretical/applied Machine Learning. These areas are of strategic importance to the school, as we build on our strong hiring in similar areas within the past several years. We will also consider truly outstanding candidates in other areas that support the school’s mission and expand it in strategic directions. For instance, the College of Computing has added a new academic unit, the School of Cybersecurity and Privacy, which is a sister school of IC. A number of IC faculty will also be leading or participating in two AI institutes funded recently by the National Science Foundation; efforts that underscore the College's and Institute's goal to expand in AI and related areas in the coming years.
Suitable candidates must have an established international reputation and have demonstrated exceptional impact, productivity, and leadership. Candidates are also expected to demonstrate an exceptional commitment to the teaching and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion through their research, teaching, or service activities.
The School of IC is a part of Georgia Tech’s College of Computing, which is ranked among the top 10 Computer Science departments in the nation. The School includes 43 full-time tenure-track Faculty, 6 Faculty with joint appointments, 8 Research Scientists, 130 PhD students, and a large number of Master’s students. We work in a wide range of research areas relating to the interface of computing to the world. The School is affiliated with the GVU Center, Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines, the Institute for Information Security and Privacy, the Institute for People and Technology, and the Machine Learning Center.
