Multiple Open-Rank, Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The George Mason University Department of Computer Science, within the College of Engineering and Computing (CEC), invites applications for multiple tenure-track or tenured faculty positions beginning Fall 2023. Senior candidates with established records of outstanding research and excellent teaching will be eligible for tenured associate professor or professor positions. George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.

Candidates who are in a dual-career situation may be able to take advantage of the university’s support for dual-career recruitment. Candidates who are in a dual-career situation or who require a start date other than Fall 2023 should make this known in their application materials.


Successful candidates will be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels; develop an independent, externally funded research program; advise students; participate in all aspects of the department’s mission; serve the profession; and embrace and help advance the University’s strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

The Department is currently based on Mason’s Fairfax campus, but plans are underway to expand the Department’s presence at the Mason Square campus in Arlington, where there will be additional opportunities for teaching and research.

Required Qualifications:

Applicants must have received a PhD by the start date of the position, and should have demonstrated potential for excellence and productivity in research, and a commitment to high-quality teaching. Successful candidates typically will have a PhD in Computer Science or a related field; candidates with a PhD in other fields should have a strong publication record in Computer Science.

Preferred Qualifications:

Applicants at all ranks and in all areas of Computer Science, broadly defined, will be considered. Candidates who can build collaborations with other departments within the College and across the University will benefit from the strong support and encouragement for interdisciplinary collaboration with the College and the University. The Department and the College place high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.

About the Department:

The Department of Computer Science has 21 teaching-track faculty and 57 tenured and tenure-track faculty with wide-ranging research interests, and strong research groups in cybersecurity, systems and networks, machine learning and data mining, artificial intelligence, robotics, visual computing, theory, databases, bioinformatics, HCI, and software engineering. The department has seen a substantial increase in computer science majors as enrollment has grown from 550 undergraduates in 2012 to over 2,200 today. The department has nearly 200 PhD students and over 950 Masters students enrolled in four MS programs.
