Faculty positions in computer science are available at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City. Applications are welcome at all levels, including tenured and tenure-track; applications in the following areas are particularly encouraged: artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and other cyber-physical systems, and digital health technology. This search may include Cornell faculty positions that are part of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute. Candidates whose work fits into Jacobs Institute application-domain emphases in the areas of cyber-physical systems (especially in urban environments) and health tech are particularly encouraged.
Faculty hired in these positions will be within the Department of Computer Science, which spans the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but their teaching and research will be based in New York City. The department is ranked among the top computer science departments in the country. (Interested candidates can apply for a Cornell Tech in NYC position, a Cornell Ithaca CS position, or both, but the two campuses have different application sites; please see the Cornell Ithaca ad for the Ithaca application URL.)
Candidates must hold a Ph.D., have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research at the level of tenure-track or tenured faculty in the Department of Computer Science, and also have a strong commitment to engagement outside of academia in ways that foster significant commercial or societal impact, as aligned with the mission of the Cornell Tech campus. Successful candidates are expected to pursue an active research program, to teach Master’s and Ph.D.-level graduate courses, and to supervise graduate students. To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2017, but will be accepted until all positions are filled.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, brief statements of research and teaching interests, identify one or two top publications to which they have made significant contributions, and the names and contact information of at least three references. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, K-12 education, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct commercial and societal impact of our research. Accordingly, within a clearly identified subsection of the Research Statement, the candidate should address prior accomplishments and future plans related to this kind of direct commercial and/or societal impact of their research.
