Lehigh University
Computer Science and Engineering

Applications are invited for tenure-track and tenured upon arrival positions in the Computer Science and Engineering Department (http://www.cse.lehigh.edu) of Lehigh University.  Outstanding candidates in robotics, systems/security, and artificial intelligence/machine learning/data science are sought for faculty positions at the ranks commensurate with experience.  In addition, exceptional candidates in all areas of computer engineering and computer science will be considered.  Successful applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a closely related field or receive such degree prior to the official start of employment.

The CSE Department currently has six professors of practice and 16 tenure track professors who maintain outstanding international reputations in a variety of areas, including artificial intelligence, data science, robotics, and systems.  The CSE faculty includes several NSF CAREER award winners, fellows of the ACM, IEEE, NAI, and the Humboldt Foundation, and former program officers of the National Science Foundation.  Successful candidates will have the opportunity to collaborate with our faculty in ongoing research projects including those associated with Lehigh’s interdisciplinary research institutes (https://www1.lehigh.edu/research/interdisciplinary-research-institutes/data-intelligent-systems-computation). The University and the Rossin College of Engineering are planning for the significant growth of the CSE faculty over the next few years.  That plan includes hiring several tenure track faculty members this year.

The Department offers Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science. All of our B.S. programs are fully accredited, including the unique B.S. in Computer Science and Business program which is accredited both in computer science and in business.  Our undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. programs are vibrant and growing, with current enrollments of approximately 350 undergraduate and 50 graduate students. We anticipate doubling the graduate student population in the next few years.  The Department’s offices, labs, and facilities are situated in the newly renovated “Building C” on the Lehigh Mountaintop Campus, which offers beautiful views of the surrounding area.  The Building’s facilities include three high bays, one of which will be renovated in the coming months to house the Lehigh Robotics labs.
