CIS Tenured or Tenure-track Positions 2024


The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania continues to expand rapidly. As a key pillar of these investments, the Department of Computer and Information Science is engaged in an ambitious, multi-year hiring effort for tenure-track positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels. We have hired 10 tenure-track faculty in the past 1.5 years, and 20 over the past 5 years.

We seek individuals with stellar research achievement and potential, who will excel in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and take a position of international leadership in defining their field of study. Leadership in cross-disciplinary collaborations is of particular interest. Successful applicants will find Penn to be a stimulating environment conducive to professional growth. This position will start July 1, 2024.

We seek individuals who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. Our faculty participate in departmental and school-level efforts to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and to work closely with students to identify and address diversity challenges. We request a discussion of candidates’ experiences in establishing and maintaining supportive, inclusive environments for diverse student communities, and what plans they have for being involved in diversity efforts at Penn.

Penn Engineering strongly supports dual career couples, and we welcome and encourage inquiries about dual career assistance (for academic and non-academic opportunities) at an early stage of the recruitment process.


Applicants must have a PhD in Computer Science or a relevant discipline. We seek exceptional candidates in all areas of computer science, with a special interest in computer security, data science and artificial intelligence, bioinformatics and computational biology, computer systems, quantum computing, and information visualization. We especially invite applications from candidates whose interests are aligned with the school’s strategic plan:
