The School of Computer and Cyber Sciences at Augusta University was founded in 2017 with the mission to provide high-engagement, state-of-the-art education, and research across its Computer Science, Information Technology, and Cybersecurity disciplines, and with the vision of becoming a national leader in Cybersecurity. The School is embarking on a path of unprecedented growth to become a comprehensive research and education college, with substantial increases in faculty, and graduate and undergraduate enrollment.
Augusta, Georgia, is becoming a primary hub for cybersecurity in the United States, and the area is poised for explosive development. It is located at the center of a number of academic, governmental and corporate partnerships critical to the nation’s cyber security, including the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, the National Security Agency Georgia, the future home of the United States Army Cyber Command, and the nearby Savannah River National Laboratory in South Carolina. The State of Georgia invested $100M in Georgia Cyber Center at Augusta University, a 167,000-square-foot research and education facility which opened on July 10, 2018 and is home to the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences. The second, 165,000-square building of the Center is under construction to be completed in December of 2018.
Augusta University has embarked on an ambitious, multi-year effort to significantly expand its computing, cybersecurity, and data science activities. Applications are being invited for tenure-track and tenured positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels, with responsibilities to advance education and research in all mainstream areas of computer science and possibly drawing from closely related or emerging fields.
Information about the school and a description of open positions are available on the school website at http://www.augusta.edu/ccs.
