Faculty Positions in Computer Science

The University of Rochester Department of Computer Science seeks applicants for multiple tenure track positions. Candidates in all areas of computer science who see a good synergistic fit with research initiatives at the university are encouraged to apply.  We are especially interested in growing our research strengths in systems (including but not limited to architecture, data-driven systems, mobile and embedded systems, networks, operating systems, and parallel and distributed systems), privacy and security, and human computer interaction.  We also welcome applicants in other areas of traditional strength for us including natural language processing. Candidates must have a PhD in computer science or a related discipline.

Consideration of applications at any rank will begin immediately and continue until all interview slots are filled.  Candidates should apply no later than January 1, 2017, for full consideration.  Applications that arrive after this date risk being overlooked or arriving after the interview schedule has been filled.

The Department of Computer Science is research focused, with a distinguished history of contributions in artificial intelligence, HCI, systems, and theory. We have a highly collaborative culture and strong ties to electrical and computer engineering, brain and cognitive science, linguistics, and several departments in the medical center. We also have a growing Institute for Data Science with potential for synergistic collaboration opportunities and more joint hires. Over the past decade, a third of the department's PhD graduates have won tenure-track faculty positions, and its alumni include leaders at major research laboratories such as Google, Microsoft, and IBM. 

The University of Rochester is a private, Tier I research institution located in western New York State.  It consistently ranks among the top 30 institutions, both public and private, in federal funding for research and development.  The university has made substantial investments in computing infrastructure through the Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC) and the Health Sciences Center for Computational Innovation (HSCCI).  The university includes the Eastman School of Music, a premiere music conservatory, and the University of Rochester Medical Center, a major medical school, research center, and hospital system.  The greater Rochester area is home to over a million people, including 80,000 students who attend its 8 colleges and universities.  Traditionally strong in optics research and manufacturing, it was recently selected by the Department of Defense as the hub of a $360M-plus Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation.

The University of Rochester has a strong commitment to diversity and actively encourages applications from groups underrepresented in higher education.  The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
