Faculty Openings in CSE Department

The Dept. of CSE at IIT-Hyderabad invites applications for permanent faculty positions in all areas of computer science, especially in the following ones: Theoretical Computer Science; VLSI, embedded systems, HPC, Big Data, Cloud Computing, Distributed systems, Software Engineering, Information Security and Virtual Reality. IIT-Hyderabad, one of the IITs established by the Govt of India in 2008, has quickly grown to be one of the best institutions for education and research in the country in a very short period. Aided by visionary administration, IIT-Hyderabad is gradually carving out a name for itself among the other IITs, and is an exciting place to study and carry out research today. It has been operating from its permanent campus since October 2015, and has 13 departments with 170 faculty and about 2050 students, with almost half of them being post-graduate students.

The CSE department offers B.Tech, M.Tech (2-Year), M.Tech (3-Year), Executive M.Tech in Data Science (2-4 Years) for working professionals, and Ph.D. programs. It comprises of about 325 students and 17 young and dynamic faculty, whose research areas span a wide variety of computing research including algorithms, computational complexity, formal methods, constraint solving, graph theory, networks and mobile systems, Internet of Things, big data, databases, parallel/distributed systems, VLSI, computer architecture, compilers, machine learning and image/video processing. The faculty have received substantial sponsored research projects in the application domains of cyber-physical systems, converged cloud radio access networks, big data analytics, smart cities, and visual intelligence, and have active research collaborations with various academic and industry partners such as Microsoft Research India, IBM Research, Samsung Research India, Intel, AMD, INRIA, Eurecom, as well as IISc and other IITs. Our faculty also have strong publication records in tier-1 venues such as VLDB, SIGMOD, POPL, KDD, CVPR, IEEE TPAMI, IEEE TNNLS, etc.

The opening and closing JEE ranks of students joining in B.Tech program of the department have steadily improved in the last 3 years (General Category, Opening rank: 418; Closing rank: 879 in 2016), illustrating the department's growth. The department’s students, of whom 46 are enrolled in the PhD program, have received several awards in recent years - TCS PhD Fellowships, Intel India PhD Fellowships, ICACCI 2015 Best Paper Award, IEEE HiPC 2014 Best Student Paper Award, TCS CodeVita contest 2016, Google Summer of Code projects, to name a few. Our graduated PhD students (within this short span) have obtained prestigious positions, including a postdoctoral position at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, a coveted institution for researchers in theoretical computer science.
