Job of Interest to ISS

  • Lincoln, Nebraska, The University of Nebraska-Lincoln seeks a faculty member at the assistant or associate professor level in Agricultural Sensing and Internet-of-Things (IoT) Systems. Food is a universal need and computing is playing an ever-increasing role in all aspects of food creation and consumption. Successfully impacting the food chain will require measurement of characteristics of plants and animals. Seed-to-table/calf-to-table sensing and data analysis can capture and correlate data over time and space to improve the safety of the food supply, enhance end-user satisfaction, and improve the efficiency of the food supply chain. Nebraska’s leading position in agriculture provides important interdisciplinary opportunities at the intersection of IoT, field robotics, and agriculture. This position is motivated by the department’s strategic plan to develop top programs in Agricultural IoT (Ag-IoT) and field robotics. This goal builds upon the department’s existing strengths in communications and networking, robotics, embedded computing, data analytics, and software engineering.   As part of this initiative, the School of Computing ( http://computing.unl.edu ) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The successful candidate will contribute to the undergraduate and graduate academic programs within the department and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in both research and teaching.
