Throughout their application, candidates are encouraged to demonstrate their attention to diversity and inclusion as these topics relate to teaching, research, and engagement within the academic environment. The Tufts CS department has grown significantly in the past decade in faculty, student size, and research funding. 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.
