The Cornell University Department of Computer Science (CS) in the college of Computing and Information Science (CIS) has tenure track and tenured faculty positions available at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City. The department is ranked among the top computer science departments in the country.

Faculty hired in these positions at Cornell Tech will be within the Department of Computer Science, which spans the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but their teaching and research will be based in New York City. A separate application is needed to be considered for a position at the Ithaca campus; please visit our website ( for further information about the Ithaca application.

This search includes Cornell faculty positions that are part of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech, which seeks candidates with demonstrated transdisciplinary interests and a track record of translating research results into real-world impact, especially in service of the common good.  Applications are particularly encouraged in areas related to health tech and to the interface between the digital and physical worlds, especially in urban environments. 

Candidates must hold or expect to receive a Ph.D. by August 2019, have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research at the level of tenure track or tenured faculty in the Department of Computer Science, and also have a strong commitment to engagement outside of academia in ways that foster significant commercial or societal impact, as aligned with the mission of the Cornell Tech campus. Successful candidates are expected to pursue an active research program, to teach Masters and Ph.D.-level graduate courses, and to supervise graduate students.

To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2018, but will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae as well as brief statements of research and teaching interests, identify one or two top publications to which they have made significant contributions, and arrange to have at least three reference letters submitted. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, K-12 education, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct commercial and societal impact of our research. Accordingly, within a clearly identified subsection of the Research Statement, the candidate should address prior accomplishments and future plans related to the commercial and/or broader public engagement and societal impact dimensions of their research. 

The above application information should be submitted online at
