|The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis seeks outstanding tenure-track faculty in all areas of computer science and engineering.|
Our department has been growing with plans to continue expanding in the coming years. 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. While candidates from all areas of computer science and engineering will be considered, we particularly welcome those with expertise in one of the following: (1) advancing and harnessing data science with a focus on the social sciences and humanities, (2) theory and practice of data security, privacy, and safety in a world of connected resources and devices, and (3) systems and algorithmic advances supporting highly scalable, cloud-based machine learning and data analytics. In addition, the department is participating in a separate, large-scale recruiting effort with our School of Engineering and School of Medicine in the area of imaging, which aims to recruit twelve new faculty over the next few years. Successful candidates will show exceptional promise for research leadership and a strong commitment to high-quality teaching. Candidates will be expected to publish their research in peer-reviewed conferences and journals, teach, and participate in department and university service.
Our faculty is engaged in a broad range of research activities. Key strategic themes include: tight integration of computation with the human and physical worlds, the extraction of knowledge from massive data sets, and the design of safe, secure, and scalable computing systems. The impact of our work is magnified through interdisciplinary collaborations throughout the School of Engineering, with colleagues in the sciences, arts, and humanities, and with our world-renowned School of Medicine. Our doctoral graduates go on to leadership positions in both academia and industry. The department values both fundamental and applied research and has a strong tradition of successful technology transfer. Our faculty is known for its collegiality and for providing a supportive environment for new arrivals.
Washington University is a private university with roughly 7,000 full-time undergraduates and 7,000 graduate students. It is nationally known for the exceptional quality of its student body and for its attractive campus, which borders residential neighborhoods and one of the nation’s largest urban parks. Many faculty walk or bike to work. St. Louis combines a Midwest cost of living with a vibrant metropolitan area, offering a wealth of cultural and entertainment opportunities.
Appointment is expected at the rank of Assistant Professor; however, exceptionally qualified applicants may be considered for appointments at the Associate or Full 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) through Academic Jobs Online. (Candidates for the imaging search should instead visit https://engineering.wustl.edu/facultyopenings.) Other communications may be directed to Prof. Roch Guérin, Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Campus Box 1045, Washington University in St. Louis, One Brookings Drive, St. Louis, MO 63130-4899.
