The Department of Computer Science at Stanford University invites applications for tenure track faculty positions at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor). We give higher priority to the overall originality and promise of the candidate's work than to the candidate's sub-area of specialization within Computer Science.
We are seeking applicants from all areas of Computer Science, spanning theoretical foundations, systems, software, and applications. We are also interested in applicants doing research at the frontiers of Computer Science with other disciplines, including but certainly not limited to those in the engineering, mathematical, medical, physical, and social sciences. Applicants must have completed (or be completing) a Ph.D., must have demonstrated the ability to pursue a program of research, and must have a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and to build and lead a team of graduate students in Ph.D. research. Further information about the Computer Science Department can be found at https://cs.stanford.edu. The School of Engineering website may be found at https://engineering.stanford.edu.
All applications should include a curriculum vita, list of publications, and brief (3 page total, including references) statements of research and teaching interests.
Applicants should submit the names and contact information of at least four references.
The review of applications will begin on December 6, 2019, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit complete applications by that date for full consideration; however,
applications will continue to be accepted until February 4, 2020.
Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford also welcomes applications from others who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching and clinical missions.
About Stanford University, Department of Computer Science
Stanford University's Computer Science Department is part of the School of Engineering. The department offers the degrees Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. It also participates in the following undergraduate inter-disciplinary programs: Computer Systems Engineering, Symbolic Systems, and Mathematical and Computational Sciences. Founded in 1965, the Department of Computer Science is a center for research and education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Strong research groups exist in areas of artificial intelligence, robotics, foundations of computer science, scientific computing, and systems. Basic work in computer science is the main research goal of these groups, but there is also a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research and on applications that stimulate basic research.
Fields in which interdisciplinary work has been undertaken include chemistry, genetics, linguistics, physics, medicine and various areas of engineering, construction, and manufacturing. Close ties are maintained with researchers with computational interests in other university departments. In addition, both faculty and students commonly work with investigators at n...earby research or industrial institutions. The main educational goal is to prepare students for research and teaching careers either in universities or in industry.
