Systems at the University of Chicago
With a strong core of faculty and students, we are growing in broadly-defined strategic clusters. We are currently focused on Data-Intensive Computing, defined inclusively as all computer science areas inspired by activities taking data thru collection, organization, analysis, and new insight (in contrast to the traditional definition ). Strategic growth of the Systems Group has the strong support of the department and the university, which together have launched this extraordinary initiative that includes hiring new faculty and major expansion of the PhD program.
Our primary focus is to hire top junior Systems faculty as part of a university strategic initiative to build an extraordinary Systems Group. In the department, we have active searches in several areas, but the official systems recruiting posting is available on the UChicago site. And while our strategic focus is Data-Intensive Computing, we welcome applications from top candidates in all Systems areas. Come and join us!
Graduate Student Recruiting
With rapidly growing research programs, we are always looking for energetic, creative PhD students -- the opportunities abound! Information about our graduate programs can be found here. The Systems group is over 30 students, postdocs, and faculty. Final results: 11 new Systems PhD students coming in Fall 2013, part of an incoming class of 18 new PhD students! (4/18/2013)
The Systems Group is part of the University of Chicago's Department of Computer Science, the hub of a diverse computing community of over two hundred researchers focused on advancing the foundations of computing and driving its most advanced applications. Long distinguished in theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, the Department is engaged in a multi-year effort to build an extraordinary Systems research group. This closely-knit community includes the Computation Institute , the Toyota Technological Institute, and Argonne's Mathematics and Computer Science Division .
