Karthik Dantu
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at University at
Buffalo invites candidates to apply for multiple faculty positions as
Professor or Full Professor* to be known as Professor of Empire Innovation.
Selected candidates will receive support through the SUNY Empire Innovation
Program (EIP) which recognizes high caliber faculty with proven track
records of externally funded research.

We invite prominent leaders in several foundational areas in artificial
intelligence and robotic systems, including computer vision (including
video analysis and 3D reconstruction), machine learning (including big data
analytics and adversarial machine learning), natural language processing
(audio-visual multimodal understanding), autonomous systems (such as
driverless cars), human-robot collaboration (focusing on attack modeling,
privacy preservation, and safety guarantees), knowledge representation and
reasoning, and cognitive science (computational linguistics, philosophy,
and computer modeling of neural networks and brains).

We are particularly looking for candidates who can operate effectively in a
diverse community of student and faculty and share our vision of helping
all constituents reach their full potential. The Department of Computer
Science and Engineering is housed in a new $75 million building, and as a
part of School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the department offers
both BA and BS degrees in Computer Science, a BS in Computer Engineering
(accredited by ABET), a combined 5-year BS/MS program, a minor in Computer
Science, and two joint programs (BA/MBA and Computational Physics) as well
as MS and PhD programs.  The department has over 40 tenured/tenure-track
faculty, 7 teaching faculty, and approximately 1,000 undergraduate majors,
450 masters’ students, and 160 PhD students. About twenty junior faculty
have been hired since 2010, and we are continuing to expand. Two members of
our faculty currently hold key university leadership positions and seven
members of our faculty are IEEE and/or ACM Fellows. Our faculty members are
actively involved in cutting-edge research and successful interdisciplinary
programs and centers devoted to biometrics; bioinformatics; biomedical
computing; computational and data science and engineering, document
analysis and recognition; high-performance computing; information assurance
and cybersecurity; embedded, networked and distributed systems, and
sustainable transportation. In 2016, our annual research expenditure
exceeded $5 million and the total amount of new awards exceeded $12 million.

The University at Buffalo (UB) is the largest and most comprehensive public
university within the State of New York with approximately 20,000
undergraduate students and 10,000 graduate students. Recently established
Centers of Excellence such as Sustainable Manufacturing and Advanced
Robotic Technologies (SMART), RENEW and Global Health as well as ISTL and
DoD’s UTC Tier 1 Center on Transportation Informatics provide many
opportunities for multidisciplinary research collaboration across the

Buffalo is the second largest city in New York State and was rated the 10th
best place to raise a family in America by Forbes magazine in 2010 due to
its short commutes and affordability. Located in scenic Western New York,
Buffalo is near the world-famous Niagara Falls, the Finger Lakes, and the
Niagara Wine Trail. The city is renowned for its architecture and features
excellent museums, dining, cultural attractions, and several professional
sports teams, a revitalized downtown waterfront as well as a growing local
tech and start-up community. Buffalo is home to Z80, a start-up incubator,
and 43 North, the world’s largest business plan competition.
