The Department of Computer Science at West Chester University is seeking two full-time tenure-track faculty members with expertise in interdisciplinary areas of theory, systems, cybersecurity and graphics. Outstanding candidates in other areas of computer science will also be considered. The appointment is open rank with an anticipated start date of Spring 2020 and Fall 2020. At the time of appointment, the candidate must have a PhD or equivalent in computer science or related discipline. Exceptional candidates with established research and active funding may be considered at the Associate Professor rank.
Dr. Linh Ngo completed his PhD in Computer Science in December of 2011 at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. From 2012 to 2015, he joined the Big Data Systems Lab at the School of Computing, Clemson University, first as a postdoctoral researcher and later to become a Research Assistant Professor. From 2015 to 2018, he became the Director of Data Science for the Cyberinfrastructure and Technology Integration (CITI) Department within the Clemson Computing and Information Technology Group.
Dr. Ngo’s general research focuses on the areas of distributed systems, big data analytics, and computer science education. More specifically, he is interested in research problems that come from real world scenarios and can create learning opportunities to students, particularly undergraduates. He is also interested in interdisciplinary collaborative work where research computing technologies are combined with domain knowledge to address socially relevant research problems.
The West Chester University Computer Science Department, within the College of Sciences & Mathematics, provides access, through education and state-of-the-art technology, to the ever-growing professional opportunities available in the fields of Computer Science. The Computer Science Bachelor of Science Program is accredited by the ABETComputing Accreditation Commission.
The Department is also designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Department is a member of Pennsylvania Association of Computer & Information Science Educators (PACISE).
We are excited to announce the creation of an accelerated Bachelor/Master of Science program. Undergraduates with 60+ credits and a 3.0+ GPA can apply and receive both degrees in 5 years. See more details.
