Open Rank Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Visualization at the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute
The University of Utah’s Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (SCI), jointly with the School of Computing (SoC), is seeking to fill an open rank (assistant, associate, or full) tenure-track faculty position in visualization. While we will consider all areas of visualization, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise and an established research record in information visualization and/or visual analytics. These interest areas reflect our strong research reputation in information, scientific, and biomedical visualization, image analysis, and interdisciplinary scientific computing within the SCI Institute. Examples of recent collaborative enterprises a candidate could contribute to are the SCI-Humanities Research Initiative (a collaboration with the College of Humanities), or the Computational Oncology Research Initiative (a collaboration with the Huntsman Cancer Institute).

The SCI Institute is committed to broadening participation in the field of visualization and values candidates with diverse intellectual, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, and who possess a strong commitment to improving access to research training for historically underrepresented students. The SCI Institute is also committed to addressing lifestyle priorities and is open to exploring opportunities for spouses and significant others.

Applicants should have earned a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related field.

All candidates are invited to submit (1) a curriculum vitae, (2) a cover letter that describes their professional experience (including scientific accomplishments, leadership responsibilities and 3 references), (3) a research statement, (4) a teaching statement. We also require (5) a one-page statement that describes how the candidate will contribute to fostering an inclusive research and teaching environment at the SCI Institute (uploaded as “Applicant Document – Other”).

In these documents, candidates should discuss their vision for interdisciplinary, computational research and how it will integrate with existing strengths at the University of Utah. This research should fit in the context of the SCI Institute’s mission of multidisciplinary bridge building ( and our mission to increase access to computing research and training to underrepresented minorities.

The University of Utah especially values candidates who have experience working in settings with students from diverse backgrounds. The University of Utah recognizes that a diverse faculty benefits and enriches the educational experiences of the entire campus and greater community. This institution offers benefits to spouses and domestic partners, regardless of gender and sexual orientation.

The University of Utah is located in Salt Lake City, the hub of a large metropolitan area with excellent cultural facilities and unsurpassed opportunities for outdoor recreation only a few minutes drive away. Visit for more information.
If you have questions, please contact Alexander Lex (, the search committee chair.
