The Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College invites applications for The John G. Kemeny Professorship of the Study of Computation and Just Communities. Qualified candidates should have a record of scholarly activity commensurate with an appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Full Professor with tenure at an R1 institution. Applicants should have a record of research in machine learning with a demonstrated interest in investigating the connections of machine learning to its effects on society and equity. Examples of such work include but not limited to: the intersection of machine learning with privacy, economic opportunity, algorithmic bias, remote sensing, and text, speech, and image processing/misinformation. Applicants should also have an interest in working closely with Dartmouth College’s newly created Wright Center for the Study of Computation and Just Communities.

The Computer Science department is home to 24 tenure-track faculty members and is committed to growing that number by 25-33% over the next decade, in a new dedicated Engineering and Computer Science Center. The department has strong Ph.D. and M.S. programs and outstanding undergraduate majors.

Computer Science, and Dartmouth as a whole, are highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower-income backgrounds, and first-generation college graduates. We seek candidates who have a demonstrated ability to contribute to Dartmouth’s diversity initiatives in STEM research, such as the Women in Science Program, E.E. Just STEM Scholars Program, and the Academic Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE). Applicants should state in their cover letter how their teaching, research, service, or experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
