The recurring difficulties of creating, managing, and understanding extremely large and complex datasets have become a common thread in many of our projects and collaborations.

The Center for Extreme Data Management Analysis and Visualization (CEDMAV) focuses on theoretical and algorithmic research, systems development, and tool deployment for dealing with this extreme data in fields such as:

  • geospatial information systems
  • astrophysics
  • climate modeling
  • energy production and distribution
  • medical imaging

 CEDMAV also develops its own training program to teach undergraduate and graduate students the techniques needed for dealing with extreme data problems, while preparing them for the challenges of modern science investigation and the management of large data centers.


Tenure-Track Faculty Positions Opening

The University of Utah’s School of Computing is seeking to hire four tenure-track faculty members at the assistant professor level. Applications will be considered at more advanced ranks in exceptional cases. The School is a demonstrated leader in research that spans multiple areas within computer science and also crosses disciplinary boundaries. Our priority areas are Big Data Analytics and Scalable Computation: principled approaches to big data analytics with a focus on the development of scalable techniques that are efficient for large scale storage and computing infrastructures.

Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field and have a strong research presence and publication record in top tier venues in the applicable area.

The University of Utah is located in Salt Lake City, the hub of a large metropolitan area with excellent cultural facilities and unsurpassed outdoor recreation opportunities just a few minutes away from campus. Additional information about the school and our current faculty can be found at Please send curriculum vitae, a research goals statement, a teaching goals statement, and names and addresses of at least four references.
