The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis seeks outstanding tenure-track faculty to begin on or after July 1, 2021. We value both fundamental and applied research and have a strong tradition of successful technology transfer. We seek talented and highly motivated individuals who will build transformative research programs through work in the core disciplines of computer science and computer engineering, as well as through interdisciplinary collaborations. Our search this year focuses on finding outstanding faculty in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and/or Data Science. Successful candidates will also affiliate with our university’s interdisciplinary Division of Computational Data Science, which is conducting a synergistic search, jointly with the Brown School of Social Work and Public Health, for faculty who investigate racial equity. These recruiting efforts are part of a university-wide effort to recruit 12 faculty whose research focuses on race or ethnicity, which will offer tremendous opportunities for exciting and impactful collaborations. Recently completed McKelvey Hall will support our department’s continued growth and collaborations, hosting both computer and data science.

Successful candidates should show exceptional promise for research leadership and a strong commitment to high-quality teaching. Candidates are expected to publish their research in peer-reviewed conferences and journals, teach, and participate in department and university service. The usual teaching load is one course per semester. Diversity and Inclusion are core values at Washington University, and candidates should demonstrate the ability to create inclusive classrooms and environments in which a diverse array of students can learn and thrive.

Appointment is expected at the rank of Associate or Full Professor; however, exceptionally qualified applicants may be considered for appointments at the Assistant Professor level. Applicants must hold a doctorate in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a closely related field. Qualified applicants should submit a complete application (cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and contact information for at least three references) here, through Academic Jobs Online. Applications received by December 15, 2020, will receive full consideration. Contact recruiting@cse.wustl.edu for questions related to this search.
