Northwestern University continues its ambitious initiative to grow and transform Computer Science (CS) [http://www.northwestern.edu/newscenter/stories/2016/06/major-expansion-in-computer-science.html]. The Computer Science department is in the midst of adding twenty new tenure-track faculty in core Computer Science and collaboratively with other disciplines (CS + X), as well as a number of non-tenure-track teaching faculty. We seek outstanding candidates who are excited by the opportunity to help build the future of CS at a world-class university. Northwestern is a leading R1 university comprising a number of highly ranking schools that provide extraordinary opportunities for collaboration across a wide range of disciplines. Located in beautiful Evanston, on the shores of lake Michigan, just outside the diverse and culturally vibrant city of Chicago, Northwestern faculty have ample opportunities to connect with the city’s growing technology sector.
