Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science – Faculty Hiring

The School of Computer Science consists of seven departments, spanning a wide range of topics in computer science and the application of computers to real-world systems. Faculty positions are specific to each department, though in certain cases, joint positions are also possible.

We are seeking tenure, research, and systems track faculty candidates with a strong interest in research, an earned Ph.D., and outstanding academic credentials. Candidates for tenure track appointments should also have a strong interest in graduate and undergraduate education.

We are also seeking teaching track faculty candidates. You should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related computing discipline, a background of demonstrated excellence and dedication to teaching, the ability to collaborate with other faculty in a fast-paced environment, and must be prepared to teach in a wide variety of settings, including large undergraduate lecture courses and classes delivered in non-traditional formats.

Candidates with a commitment toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly community are particularly encouraged to apply. We are very interested in applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing women and students from groups traditionally underrepresented in computer science.

We will begin accepting applications beginning September 3, 2019. To ensure full consideration of your application, please submit all materials no later than December 10, 2019. In your cover letter, please indicate clearly the department(s) you are applying to.
