CRA Database of Candidates for Academic and Industrial/Government Laboratory Positions

The number of faculty openings in computing has increased significantly in recent years, which has placed stress on the faculty recruiting process. Both academic departments and faculty candidates go through an arduous process.

In an effort to improve the recruiting process for academic and industrial/government laboratory positions, CRA has started an initiative where candidates for these positions can upload their resumes, research and teaching statements, job objectives and other preferences, and a link to a presentation video. Recruiting officers with access are able to search this information and contact candidates.

Recruiter access to the database is available to CRA academic members. It is also available to industry or government members that have sponsored CRA-W’s Grad Cohort for Women at the silver level and above. The database is password protected, and members may not give access to non-subscribers.

We hope that this resource will help match recruiting departments with candidates for academic and industrial/government laboratory positions.
