Assistant or Associate Professor of Computer Science

The Computer Science Department at Brandeis University invites applications for up to two full-time faculty positions at the rank of assistant or associate professor (depending on experience and qualifications), both outside the tenure structure and to start ideally in the Fall Semester of 2022 (or possibly in the Spring Semester of 2023), pending budgetary approval. The positions will have an initial appointment of up to three years and the potential for renewal. We seek candidates who are able to teach a wide range of first- and second-year computer science courses, as well as occasional upper-level and graduate electives. The successful candidate must be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and is expected to participate fully in the academic life of the department, including advising, participating in faculty meetings, supporting undergraduate research and other activities relevant to our teaching mission. Candidates are expected to have strong foundational knowledge in one or more areas of our core curriculum, and we are also very interested in candidates with experience in Computer Security and Privacy.

A Ph.D. degree in computer science is required. Candidates should be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching computer science at the university level. Salary is commensurate with qualifications.

The Computer Science department has 15 tenure-line and 5 full-time contract faculty members with diverse research and teaching interests. Besides offering bachelors, masters, and Ph.D. degrees in CS, the department houses the Linguistics program and offers a vibrant nationally recognized master’s program in Computational Linguistics. Full-time OTS faculty participate fully in the department, attending faculty meetings and being able to chair important committees, and Brandeis provides a paid semester leave for eligible full-time faculty.

Applicants should submit the following: (1) cover letter, (2) CV, (3) teaching statement, (4) sample syllabus and two sample homework assignments for a foundational CS course, and (5) arrange for the submission of three letters of recommendation.  Brandeis University is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in all areas of faculty effort, including scholarship, instruction, and service. Applicants should address at least one of these areas of faculty effort in  their cover letter or in a separate statement indicating how their experiences, interests, commitments, or future goals could promote and build departmental and institutional pluralism, justice, and unity.

Application materials should be uploaded to AcademicJobsOnline at  First consideration will be given to applications received by 31 March 2022. Questions about the position should be directed to
