Carnegie Mellon University
School of Computer Science

The School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon pushes the boundaries of computer science research and education. The School houses seven departments: Computational Biology, Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Software and Societal Systems, Language Technologies, Machine Learning and Robotics.

SCS is seeking to fill several faculty positions across all departments, in all tracks and at all levels, with joint appointments when appropriate. The four faculty tracks in our School include: tenure, research, systems and teaching tracks. We are seeking candidates with a strong interest in research and/or teaching, an earned Ph.D. (in computer science or relevant fields), and outstanding academic credentials. Such candidates should be effective at collaborating with other faculty. Candidates for tenure and teaching track appointments should also have a strong interest in graduate and undergraduate education and therefore must be prepared to teach in a wide variety of settings, including large undergraduate lecture courses and classes delivered in non-traditional formats. Research track faculty are not required to teach and generally focus most or all of their effort on cutting-edge research. Systems track similarly teach only on an exceptional basis and focus all or most of their effort on designing and building novel systems.

Candidates with a commitment toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly community are particularly encouraged to apply. We seek to continuously improve the diversity of our student, staff and faculty populations, including and especially through annual faculty hiring processes.

Each department’s hiring committee thoroughly reviews the qualifications of every applicant, and are particularly enthusiastic about applicants whose background and experiences would make them unique among our faculty. Applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing women and students from groups traditionally underrepresented in computer science are strongly encouraged.

We will begin accepting applications beginning August 2, 2023. To ensure full consideration of your application, please submit all materials no later than December 13, 2023. In your cover letter, please indicate clearly the department(s) you are applying to.
