Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computer Science

Northwestern University
Computer Science

Applicants for the Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computer Science are welcome from all Computer Science research disciplines, and will continue to advance their research agendas, expand their research community, and strengthen their teaching and mentoring capabilities.

The Postdoctoral Fellowships in CS+X are a result of a partnership with Northwestern’s Weinberg School of Arts and Sciences and are focused on growing the boundaries of Computer Science, including by providing students and faculty across the University with education in areas of computation that will help them in their work.   CS+X Fellows will work across disciplines to develop advanced courses for non-CS students who are working in fields where computation is becoming more and more important.   These Teaching Fellows will also be part of the process identifying areas of intersection and impact in drawing computational thinking into new research areas.

The teaching load for Postdoctoral Fellows is one course per quarter over the three-quarter academic year (including an advanced-level course in the candidate’s research area).  These are two-year positions, with the possibility of renewal for an additional year.

We encourage candidates to send applications as soon as possible; appointments begin Fall 2021 quarter. Applications received by January 31, 2021 will be given full consideration; however, the positions will remain open until filled. Applicants should submit (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) three to five letters of reference, (4) statement of research goals, (5) statement of teaching philosophy, and (6) two representative publications.
