These areas are of strategic importance to the School. We will, however, consider outstanding candidates in all areas that support the school’s mission and expand it in strategic directions. For instance, a number of our faculty are leading or participating in two AI institutes funded 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. Tenure-track professors are expected to teach one course per semester, provide service to the School and the Institute, and are expected to engage in substantive research with collaborators in other disciplines.
