Dear Colleagues,

We are continuing to build a new School of Computer and Cyber Sciences at Augusta University, now in its second year. This is an exciting opportunity to be among the founding members of the new school, to have great growth opportunities, and to substantially contribute to our research directions. Following a successful hiring program last year -- we recruited 10 faculty, some of whom you surely know -- I will be hiring at least 10 more faculty this year, and 10 more the year after the next. Please consider applying.

All the best,
Alex Schwarzmann
