The Department of Computer Science (CS) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) seeks outstanding candidates for a tenure-track position in Human-Centered Computing (HCC). The opening is targeted at the level of Assistant Professor, although outstanding senior candidates at higher ranks may be considered.

The position will help shape the future of human-centered computing at the University of Colorado Boulder within the department as well as in new campus initiatives. We seek candidates with promising research in the areas of human-computer interaction, computer-supported cooperative work, social computing, ubiquitous computing, and information visualization. Candidates should have an orientation to computer science as their primary teaching home, though an interdisciplinary research program is welcomed and has been a hallmark of HCC research at CU.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in computer science, information studies, or a related discipline.  Candidates must show promise in their ability to develop an independent research program, and demonstrate a commitment to teaching and working with both undergraduate and graduate students.

Applications will be evaluated beginning in November 2013 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications must include a letter of application specifying area of specialization, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information of three references.

The Department’s research and education is enhanced by many interdisciplinary programs, supporting collaborations in cognitive science, the arts and humanities, as well as in the natural sciences and engineering, and in public policy. We also benefit from Boulder's concentration of high-tech industry and its lively startup community.
