The Department of Computer Science in the College of Science at Purdue University solicits applications for at least two tenure-track or tenured positions at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor levels in theoretical computer science. This search complements and runs parallel to three other faculty searches covering all other areas of computer science. It is part of a broader effort to increase presence in the area of theoretical computer science.

We are particularly interested in candidates whose work in theoretical computer science focuses on the design and analysis of algorithms, randomness in computation, graph algorithms, and quantum computing, and whose interests complement existing departmental strengths. Highly qualified applicants in other areas of theoretical computer science will be considered. Applicants must hold a PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline, have demonstrated excellence in research and strong commitment to teaching. Successful candidates will be expected to conduct research in their fields of expertise, teach courses in computer science, and participate in department and university activities.

These positions are part of a continued expansion in a large-scale hiring effort across key strategic areas in the College of Science. Under new leadership, the college is pursuing significant new initiatives which complement campus-wide thrusts including an Integrative Data Science Initiative. Opportunities for collaboration exist across mathematics, probability, statistics, and the physical and life sciences.

The Department of Computer Science offers a stimulating academic environment with active research programs in most areas of computer science. The department offers undergraduate programs in Computer Science and Data Science, and graduate MS and PhD programs including a Professional MS in Information Security. For more information see https://www.cs.purdue.edu.

Applicants should apply online at https://hiring.science.purdue.edu. A background check will be required for employment. Review of applications and interviews will begin in October 2018, and will continue until positions are filled. Inquiries can be sent to fac-search@cs.purdue.edu.

Purdue University’s Department of Computer Science is committed to advancing diversity in all areas of faculty effort, including scholarship, instruction, and engagement. Candidates should address at least one of these areas in the cover letter, indicating their past experiences, current interests or activities, and/or future goals to promote a climate that values diversity, and inclusion.
