The Computer and Information Science Department at the University of Oregon is a growing and diverse department with research strengths in computer systems, data science, and high-performance computing. We offer a stimulating, friendly environment for collaborative research both within the department, and with other units on campus; for example, the department plays a key role in the Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact. Additionally, the department hosts two research centers: the Center for Cyber Security and Privacy and the Neuroinformatics Center.
This supportive environment enables our faculty and students to pursue transformational advances, both in core computer science and in emerging applied areas.
The department is in the midst of a growth phase for our tenure track faculty; we have two new assistant professors joining us from the 2016-2017 recruiting season, and will be recruiting an additional 2 new assistant professors in the 2017-2018 recruiting season. We are also growing the size, quality, and diversity of our graduate student cohort; 7 of the 11 entering PhD students in September 2017 are female.
