University of California, Irvine
Information and Computer Science

The University of California, Irvine, Department of Information and Computer 
Science (ICS), is seeking excellent candidates for a tenured or tenure-track 
position in Computer Graphics.  Computer Graphics is a new research area in 
ICS and is dedicated to grow substantially over the next few years.  For more 
information about the graphics lab at ICS, see the web page
http://www.ics.uci.edu/~graphics/.  We are particularly interested in 
graphics for digital arts, but we are open to qualified candidates in other 
areas who will complement or bolster our current strengths.

The position is for Associate or Assistant Professor, but exceptional 
candidates from all ranks are eagerly sought.  We are looking for applicants 
with a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science or a related field and strong 
research credentials as evidenced by scholarly publications. Applicants for a 
senior position must also demonstrate a proven track record in funded 
research activities.

The Department and UCI are poised for exceptional growth in the coming years. 
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 
CV, three sample papers, and contact information for three or four references 
to recruit at ics.uci.edu with a cc to recruit-A at ics.uci.edu (PDF, postscript, 
Word, or ASCII).

Applicants are requested to ask their references to send letters of 
evaluation to recruit at ics.uci.edu by January 12, 2001.  Those that insist 
upon sending hard copy may send it to: ICS Faculty Position [A] c/o Peggy 
Munhall Department of Information and Computer Science University of 
California, Irvine Irvine, CA 92697-3425

For more information, prospective applicants are encouraged to contact David 
Eppstein, Chair, ICS Faculty Position A by email at recruit-A at ics.uci.edu.

Application screening will begin immediately upon receipt of curriculum 
vitae.  Maximum consideration will be given to applications received by 
January 5, 2001.

The University of California is an Equal Opportunity Employer, committed to 
excellence through diversity.
