Tenure-track faculty position in Theoretical Computer Science, and Any Area with Leadership Potential, starting in Fall 2023. We seek candidates for multiple, tenure-track faculty positions. We are interested in candidates at the Assistant or Associate Professor level with research in Theoretical Computer Science. We are seeking those who conduct research advancing the design and analysis of algorithms, computational complexity, and/or the rigorous experimental study and application of algorithms to other areas within and outside computer science. We also seek candidates for the Ada Lovelace Professorship, in any area and at any rank. Candidates for this professorship must demonstrate strong leadership potential. Mid-career, new or established Associate Professors or recently promoted Full Professors are preferred. The Lovelace Professorship title is for a 5-year term, after which the candidate will continue as a faculty member at the same rank. Exceptional candidates not matching either the Theory or the Lovelace position descriptions will also be considered. Please submit your application through Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/112019.

Review of applications will begin December 15, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. Inquiries should be emailed to ttsearch@cs.tufts.edu.

Candidates may have expertise in any area of computer science or a closely related field. They are expected to have strong foundational knowledge in one or more areas of our core curriculum, including Data Structures, Algorithms, Programming Languages, and Computation Theory. This is a full-time, non-tenure-track position. The initial appointment is for two years, with possible renewal contingent on annual performance review results. A doctoral degree is preferred but not required. Please submit your application through Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/111036.

About Tufts. The Tufts CS department has grown significantly in the past decade in faculty, student size, and research funding. The department recently moved into the brand-new Joyce Cummings Center, which is also the home of Math, Economics, the Data Intensive Studies Center, and the Derby Entrepreneurship Center. Tufts offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere coupled with the intellectual and technological resources of an R1 research university. We support and encourage a culture of interdisciplinary research, and there are numerous such opportunities within the university. Located only six miles from historic downtown Boston, faculty members on the Tufts Medford/Somerville campus have extensive opportunities for academic and industrial collaboration outside of Tufts as well as participation in the rich intellectual life of the area.
