Academic Level:

The Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for an Academic Coordinator position, at the rank of Academic Coordinator 1. The programs to be supported are the NSF IGERT in Network Science, the Network Science of Teams MURI, the Information Network Academic Research Center, and the Computer Security Lab. The ideal candidate will help integrate and unify the efforts of a group of labs and programs pursuing research in network science and network security, especially those interdisciplinary areas where the projects overlap, by providing the administrative support needed to achieve the various programmatic goals of the programs. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through effective administration and service.

The network science program is minimal-to-moderate in complexity, with oversight provided mainly by three Computer Science faculty: Drs. Ambuj Singh, Giovanni Vigna, and Christopher Kruegel. In addition, the program attracts the collaboration of other faculty from Computer Science, as well as faculty from other departments on campus, including Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Sociology, Geography, Economics, Biology, etc. The graduate student participants are equally varied in their backgrounds. Due to the variety of participants and their disparate needs, the academic coordinator will need to be self-driven, able to handle multiple assignments at once, and have excellent communication skills.

The minimum qualifications required to be an applicant are a Master's Degree or prior experience (five years) with coordinating academic programs. The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.

To apply, please go to UC Recruit at and apply to JPF01063
