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.
