Penn State is embarking on a transformative cluster hiring initiative in cyberscience utilizing computation and data-enabled science and engineering to lead through cyber-enabled innovation in interdisciplinary research. This cross-college endeavor will coordinate multiple faculty appointments to develop new functional capabilities centered on data, models and simulation for deeper insights into the critical problems in science and engineering.
Cyberscience is fundamentally changing the way in which research is being performed and funded. Our goal is to appoint outstanding faculty who will rapidly move Penn State into the spotlight by bringing new cyberscience capabilities to bear around existing strengths. We seek exceptional applicants who can advance data- and computation-intensive methodology and systems with a demonstrated commitment to participating in interdisciplinary research.
We strive to gain outstanding faculty who can work across disciplines and in a team to advance algorithms, software and theory to exploit “Big Data” and “Big Simulations” for scientific discovery, and engineering design in a variety of disciplines. These tenure-track appointments will range in levels from Assistant and Associate Professors through Full Professors and Endowed Chairs. We anticipate that many candidates will have joint appointments in multiple departments both within and across colleges. These positions feature outstanding research space, competitive start-up packages, and state-of-the-art shared instrumentation for computation and data-enabled research.
