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

Applications are welcome from all areas of computer science and related fields. Applications in areas relevant to the research trajectories and priorities at the Cornell Tech campus are particularly encouraged, including broadly in systems, software engineering, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and related application areas such as computer vision, mixed reality, and robotics. We especially welcome applicants whose scholarship and service further the department's goals around diversity and inclusion.

Faculty hired in these positions at Cornell Tech will be members of 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 Computer Science position at the Ithaca campus; please visit the website http://www.cs.cornell.edu/information/jobpostings for further information about the Ithaca application process.

Cornell Tech is a graduate campus of Cornell University located on Roosevelt Island in New York City. It includes the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute, a joint academic venture between Cornell and the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. Cornell Tech's academic environment encourages tight integration across disciplines in technology, business, law, and design, couples fundamental research with practice, and supports societal and commercial ventures alongside research and education. In addition to world-class academic work, a distinguishing characteristic of our research is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct societal and commercial impact of our research. Hubs in Health Tech, Urban Tech, and Public Interest Tech exemplify this approach, bringing together researchers, practitioners and communities to collaborate.

Tenured and tenure-track faculty must hold the equivalent of a Ph.D. Applicants must have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research, and should 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, 2021, but will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Fostering an inclusive environment is a core value of the Computer Science Department, Cornell Tech, and Cornell as a whole. In line with Cornell’s historical commitment to educating “… any person … in any study…”, we seek candidates who will create a climate that helps attract and is inclusive of all students, including students from historically underrepresented groups and students who have overcome personal challenges. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply. Applicants are asked to submit a Statement of Contribution to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to describe their potential contributions to diversity and inclusion. See http://facultydevelopment.cornell.edu/information-for-faculty-candidates/ for the university’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including suggestions for what we are looking for in such statements, and see https://www.tech.cornell.edu/impact/diversity-inclusion/ for some Cornell Tech activities in this area.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a diversity statement, and 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: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19808.
