The Department of Information Sciences (IS) of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is accepting applications for multiple tenure track positions at the Assistant/Associate Professor level. Exceptional candidates may be considered for appointment at a more senior level. A PhD is required, and degrees in Information Sciences or a closely related field are preferred for the breadth of teaching required within the department. Applicants must show excellent research potential, are expected to develop an externally funded research program, and must have a strong commitment to graduate teaching.
The Department of Information Sciences is part of the Graduate School of Operational and Information Sciences and has a long history of excellence in field experimentation and modeling of cyber-physical systems, specifically in the areas of information systems and supporting technologies, networks, coordination and control for net-centric unmanned systems, cloud computing, and cyber and information warfare. While the search is broad, we are especially interested in candidates with interests and experience in emerging areas of robotics and autonomous systems; data collection, analysis and mining; cyber-physical infrastructure, to include database management, network architecture and systems, decision support systems, and enterprise architecture; machine learning; collaborative learning; and the computational simulation of information and organization environments. Strong candidates with expertise in other areas will not be precluded from consideration.
The mission of the Department of Information Sciences at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, is to provide in-residence graduate education, as well as a continuum of career-long learning opportunities, in support of defense requirements in the areas of information sciences, systems, and operations. The Department maintains an internationally respected research program and has the capability of developing research programs in additional areas of information sciences that are required to support defense and security-related graduate education. Our students are primarily military officers seeking Master’s degrees in defense-oriented IS topics. We also have a small Ph.D. program. Our students are capable, mature, and hard working. Our research addresses important and challenging problems in national security, and we foster close collaborations with US Navy and Department of Defense sponsors, other federal sponsors, as well as other universities.
