USC/ISI Seeks Research Leaders in Autonomy and in Cybersecurity

June 8, 2016

The Information Sciences Institute (ISI) is a research center that is part of the University of Southern California's Viterbi School of Engineering. Its main offices are located in Marina del Rey, with a view of the marina and the Santa Monica Bay; it also maintains a key research group in Arlington, Virginia. ISI is home to over 200 researchers in numerous areas of computer science and engineering who carry out world-class research in a collaborative, academic environment. Additionally, more than 30 of these researchers hold faculty appointments in USC departments—primarily computer science and electrical engineering.

Scientists and engineers at ISI spend the vast majority of their time committed to the research they love. Projects are critically accelerated by research programmers and students at all levels, and USC operates one of the world's largest high-performance computing clusters. ISI researchers hold leadership positions in many scientific societies and have founded numerous spin-off and start-up companies.

We are currently searching for two research leaders—specifically in the areas of autonomy and cybersecurity. Recognizing that both areas are very broad in their scope, we seek talented and versatile candidates who demonstrate the greatest potential for broad impact. Candidates should have a strong record of technical leadership to independently guide investigations in key research areas and build creative and cohesive research teams. They should also possess the background and skill set for developing winning proposals to fund their research. We are seeking superior candidates and envision commensurate compensation for those who are selected.

ISI researchers have the opportunity to teach and interact with graduate student researchers. They are eligible to apply for a research faculty appointment in the appropriate department at USC; if appointed, they will benefit from advising graduate students and chairing PhD committees.

Application Procedure: Applicants must be prepared to submit the following materials to: joinISI@isi.edu.

Important Dates: Application deadline—1 August 2016. Start dates are flexible.

Contact Information: joinISI@isi.edu

Diversity: The University of Southern California values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment.
