The U.S. Naval Academy’s Computer Science Department invites applications for one or more Distinguished Visiting Professors. The visiting professor is expected to have a strong reputation and technical expertise in Computer Science, Information Technology, or a closely related field.

The start date of this position is flexible but August 2018 is preferred. We have provisions for either full-time financial support or supplemental support for a professor on sabbatical. The position duration could vary from one to several years. Responsibilities may vary and may include teaching, collaborating with faculty and/or mentoring student research.

The Computer Science Department offers majors in Computer Science and Information Technology, and contributes to a new major in Cyber Operations.  The department is housed in a state of the art building overlooking the scenic Severn River. Our spaces provide outstanding office, laboratory, and research facilities for both students and faculty.

The Naval Academy is an undergraduate institution located in historic downtown Annapolis, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay.  Over half of the faculty are tenured or tenure track civilian professors with Ph.D.s who balance teaching excellence with internationally recognized research programs.  The remaining faculty are active duty military officers with Masters or Doctoral degrees.  Each year the academy graduates roughly 1000 undergraduate students with majors in the sciences, engineering, and humanities.  More information about the department and the Academy can be found at http://www.usna.edu/cs/ and http://www.usna.edu/.
