Faculty Positions in Computer Science: Experimental Systems and Data Science

The University of Rochester Department of Computer Science seeks applicants for multiple tenure track positions in the broad areas of experimental systems and data science research (including but not exclusively focused on very large data-driven systems, machine learning and/or optimization, networks and distributed systems, operating systems,  sustainable systems, security, and cloud computing). Candidates must have a PhD in computer science or a related discipline.  Apply online at:


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, 2014 for full consideration. 

The University is running several other concurrent searches of potential interest to computer science candidates, including a search for faculty performing Interdisciplinary Research in Data Science, and a search for faculty in Electrical & Computer Engineering.  Please visit the

Institute for Data Science recruiting page

for information about all of these searches.  Candidates may apply to more than one search if it is appropriate.

The Department of Computer Science is a research-oriented department with a distinguished history of contributions in systems, theory, artificial intelligence, and HCI. We have a collaborative culture and strong ties to electrical and computer engineering, cognitive science, linguistics, and several departments in the medical center. 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). Teaching loads are light and classes are small. Half of all undergraduates go on to post-graduate or professional education. 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. 

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