Colorado School of Mines
Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science at the Colorado School of Mines (Mines) invites applications for multiple open rank tenured/tenure-track faculty positions in Computer Science (applications considered at the assistant, associate, and full professor levels), anticipated to begin in August 2023. While all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, the department is especially interested in candidates with research specialization in one or more of the following broadly defined areas: Machine Learning and AI (e.g., Machine Learning, Big Data Computing, Computer Vision, Bioinformatics), Cybersecurity (e.g., System Security, Privacy, Applied Cryptography), Robotics (e.g., Robot Perception, Learning, and Autonomy), and Systems (e.g., Networked systems, High-Performance Computing, Computer Architecture, Quantum Computing, Embedded Systems).

The CS faculty tend to work collaboratively (with researchers from both within the department and outside), with several faculty involved in Mines interdisciplinary programs in Quantum Engineering, Data Science, Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering, Operations Research with Engineering, and Robotics.  As such, successful candidates are expected to interact with researchers both within the department and across the Mines campus and are encouraged to be involved with our interdisciplinary programs. The CS department has strengths in multiple areas including robotics, high-performance computing, networks, machine learning, and cybersecurity. More information about the university and the CS Department can be found at http://mines.edu and http://cs.mines.edu. For any questions, please contact cs@mines.edu.

Colorado School of Mines, Colorado’s oldest public university, premier engineering university, and an R1 institution, is located in Golden, Colorado: a historic gold rush-era town nestled in the foothills of the Rockies, 13 miles west of Denver and 21 miles south of Boulder. Mines is consistently ranked among the top engineering colleges in the United States and ranks number one as the best public school in the state for best value colleges.

The 2022 edition of U.S. News and World Report’s America’s Best National Universities ranks Mines as the top-ranked university in Colorado, and 33th in the category of Top Public Schools. In addition, in the most recent ranking of Computer Science Programs in the U.S., CS@Mines was ranked in the top 5%. In 2016, Mines was ranked 2nd in America by the Wall Street Journal for combining Scholarly Research and Classroom Instruction and in 2022 Mines was ranked 3rd on the list of best engineering colleges by Money Magazine. Mines has the highest admissions standards of any public university in Colorado and among the highest of any public university in the U.S. The School’s proximity to Denver and Boulder provides opportunities for significant collaboration with government labs (including NREL, NIST, NCAR, and NOA), industry, and other universities.
