The Rensselaer-IBM Artificial Intelligence Research Collaboration, a member of the IBM AI Horizons Network, is seeking outstanding tenured/tenure-track faculty with strengths in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Of particular interest are the areas of cybersecurity, cyber-physical systems, AI chip design, signal and image processing, computer vision, optimization, robotics, human-automation interaction, IoT and edge computing, and electric power systems.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in Troy, NY, is embarking on an ambitious expansion in computational sciences and engineering research and education, with a focus on creating a research cluster in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). We seek applications from outstanding candidates at all ranks (assistant, associate, and full professor) who will build upon our existing strengths in these and related areas across the university.

We seek candidates in research areas to include fundamental advances in AI and machine learning, the theory of learning, novel AI algorithms and architectures, and software engineering principles for AI systems (including topics in scalability, robustness, fairness, and verification).

The ideal candidates will not only develop a scientific program in AI, but also work with researchers making contributions to the use of AI and machine learning in addressing global challenges such as energy and the built environment, climate science, advanced manufacturing, critical infrastructure and supply chain management, the arts, and life sciences and systems biology.

We welcome candidates who will bring diverse intellectual, geographical, gender, and ethnic perspectives to Rensselaer’s work and campus communities. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity, Race/Gender/Veterans/Disability Employer.
