The ICS Department (http://www.ics.uci.edu/) is organized as an independent
campus unit reporting to the Executive Vice Chancellor. It runs the largest
computing program in the University of California system, and has designed an
undergraduate honors program that attracts the campus' most qualified
students. External funding from government and industrial sponsors exceeded
$10 million last year. The Department currently has 38 full-time faculty and
200 Ph.D. students involved in various research areas including analysis of
algorithms and data structures, artificial intelligence and machine learning,
hardware-software co-design, parallel and distributed processing, embedded
systems, communication networks, middleware technology, security and
cryptography, databases, information retrieval and visualization,
computational biology, computer graphics, human computer interaction and
computer supported cooperative work, programming languages, software
development and advanced software technology. ICS faculty are at the
forefront of research in emerging areas of the computer science discipline
such as multimedia/embedded computing, Internet computing and mobile systems,
knowledge-discovery in databases, biomedical informatics, the role of
information in computer science, and the social aspects of computing
technology. The faculty has effective interdisciplinary ties to colleagues
in the arts, biology, cognitive science, engineering, management, medicine,
and the social sciences.
Although UC Irvine is a young university, it has attained remarkable stature
in the past 3 decades. Two Nobel prizes were recently awarded to UCI
faculty. UCI is located three miles from the Pacific Ocean near Newport
Beach, approximately forty miles south of Los Angeles. The climate is ideal
year-round avoiding extreme temperatures in winters and summers. Irvine is
consistently ranked among the safest cities in the U.S. and has an
exceptional public school system. The campus is surrounded by
high-technology companies that participate in an active affiliates program.
Both the campus and the area offer exciting professional and cultural
opportunities. Mortgage and housing assistance are available including newly
built, for-sale housing located on campus and within short walking distance
from the department.
Since ICS is also recruiting applicants in other areas of computer science
for additional faculty positions, applications should be accompanied by a
cover letter noting that this applicant is for Area A (Graphics), thus
ensuring correct routing within our bureaucracy. Applicants should send a
