Faculty positions in CS

We are hiring new tenure-track faculty — in core computer science and collaboratively with top-ranked schools of medicine, law, journalism, and business (CS + X) — as well as a number of non-tenure track teaching faculty.

To support this growth of our faculty, increase our research impact, and meet growing student demand, we also invite applications for postdoctoral fellowships in computer science.
