Khoury College of Computer Sciences

The Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning 2024-25 or 2025-26.  The College is seeking to give excellent candidates across all demographics of society the opportunity, resources, and support to establish innovative and impactful research careers.  These positions are for candidates at the earliest stages of their careers and provide an option of a 1- to 2-year Khoury Research Fellow position, to allow candidates to ramp up their research programs before starting on the tenure track.  We welcome candidates in all areas of computing.

The tenure home will reside in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences, with a potential joint appointment with another Northeastern college, to be determined in consultation with the person filling the position.  Northeastern University is a global university system. Positions will primarily be on the Boston campus but may be available at any of our 14 campus locations. In addition to Boston, Khoury College currently offers programs in Portland (ME), San Francisco, Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Vancouver, and is launching new programs in Arlington (VA) and Oakland in 2023.

Faculty members at Northeastern are expected to develop independent research programs that attract external funding; teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate level; supervise students and postdocs in their area of research; and participate in service to the department, university, and discipline.  Candidates must hold a PhD in Computer Science or a related field from an accredited institution by the appointment start date.  They must be interested in conducting high-impact research and be committed to teaching excellence.  We encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, including academia and industry.
