Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field in hand by the time of appointment to be hired as an Assistant Professor; a successful candidate may be hired as an Instructor if the candidate does not have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, but will complete the Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field within one year of hire.
