Faculty Position Announcement


Department of Computing Sciences

Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi (TAMU–CC) is a rapidly growing doctoral research university with more than 12,000 students. TAMU–CC, a Minority-Serving Institution and Hispanic-Serving Institution on the cultural border with Latin America, provides a robust campus experience focused on student and faculty success. Located on its own island on the Texas Gulf Coast, the “Island University” was recently recognized as one of the most beautiful coastal campuses in the United States. In 2019, the Carnegie Commission of Higher Education designated TAMU-CC an R2 Doctoral University – High Research Activity. State-of-the-art classroom and laboratory buildings, support facilities, and recognized faculty strategically position TAMU–CC to achieve its goal of national and international prominence as an emerging research institution as designated in the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s Accountability System.

TAMU-CC invites applications for 5 tenure-track positions in the Department of Computing Sciences for Fall 2020. The Department of Computing Sciences prepares students to pursue productive careers and advanced degrees in computer science or geospatial systems engineering. The department is also home to the recently formed Geospatial Computer Science PhD program, which is a first of its kind program, nationally and internationally, that emphasizes the theory of computer science for handling geospatial data and in exploring emerging technologies enabled by geospatial science & engineering.

Faculty hired under this initiative will play an integral role in the development and growth of the Ph.D. program as well as the BS and MS in Computer Science programs. Information about the department is available at Three of these positions represent a cluster hire in geospatial data science where we are seeking innovative, talented researchers in the areas such as: machine learning, deep learning, data science, spatial simulation and modeling, computer vision and image processing, geospatial AI and analytics, geospatial software systems and computation. The other two positions will be filled with applicants with a focus in cybersecurity and applications of cybersecurity to Geospatial Computer Science.
