Faculty Positions

  • Tenure-Track Faculty Positions, Department of Computer Science
    We're seeking outstanding candidates for multiple tenure-track positions. The openings are targeted at the level of Assistant Professor, although exceptional candidates at higher ranks may be considered. Research areas of particular interest include secure and reliable software systems, numerical optimization and high-performance scientific computing, and network science and machine learning. 

  • Full-Time Instructor, Department of Computer Science
    Candidates must have an earned graduate degree in Computer Science or a closely-related field, and must demonstrate a strong commitment to high-quality undergraduate Computer Science education in the areas of computer systems, operating systems, databases, networking and/or programming languages.  

  • Tenure-Track Assistant Professor, Computational Biology, BioFrontiers Institute
    BioFrontiers integrates faculty from nine departments to address significant problems in biology and medicine at the interface of the biological sciences with the physical sciences, mathematics, computer science, and/or engineering. While a successful candidate could be rostered in any of the participating departments, this search will focus on candidates seeking to develop an internationally recognized research program in computational biology, with additional emphases on genomics, the microbiome, and/or network science.
