University of Virginia Computer Science Open Rank Tenure Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia seeks 7 tenured or tenure-track faculty at all ranks and in all areas of computer science. We are seeking a comprehensive expansion of the department to strengthen and build bridges across our research priorities in Theory, Software Engineering and Programming Languages (including Compilers), Security and Privacy, Human-Computer Interaction, Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things, Computer Systems and Engineering (including Distributed Systems, High-Performance Computing, Networks, Operating Systems),  and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (including Computer Vision), as well as building bridges between these topic areas and other areas of Computer Science.

The CS Department’s strategic plan also includes an expansion of our Computer Engineering program. At the University of Virginia, this is jointly administered by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). We are therefore coordinating our faculty searches. Joint administration facilitates close collaboration between the two departments, and students in Computer Engineering may be advised by faculty in either department.  The departments are also founding members of the Link Lab, a multi-disciplinary center for research on Cyber-Physical Systems, the Internet of Things, and autonomous devices. We are especially interested in candidates who have the potential to collaborate with colleagues in both departments.

The primary responsibilities for these positions include research, teaching, and service to the department and the community at large. The appointment rank will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. Candidates must have received a doctorate or equivalent in a computing field by the start of their appointment. A commitment to high-impact scholarship, funded research, undergraduate- and graduate-level teaching and advising excellence, and professional service is essential, as is evidence of a commitment to fostering inclusive practices that create climates in which all stakeholders can achieve their maximum potential. UVA is proud to have a strong culture of collaboration and collegiality and is committed to providing the kind of collaborative, diverse environment necessary to solve the next generation of research challenges.
