Faculty Positions in Computer Science Starting Fall 2016


Tulane University, New Orleans, LA
Department of Computer Science

Tulane Computer Science is Hiring!

The Tulane Computer Science department anticipates multiple hires at all levels as it continues to build its program. We expect to double our faculty within two years, and to triple it within two more years. We are particularly pleased to announce

The Yahoo! Founder Chair in Systems

We seek outstanding applicants for an endowed chair in systems. The successful applicant will be an internationally recognized leader who is capable of establishing and leading a systems group of the first rank. The Yahoo! Founder Professor will anchor our new systems group, with additional hires expected to complete the group. We are especially interested in candidates in network and distributed systems, systems security or software systems. Potential candidates are encouraged to contact Professor Michael Mislove, chair of the computer science department, at mislove@tulane.edu about their candidacy.

Tenured/Tenure-Track Open Rank Positions

We also anticipate a number of openings for tenured or tenure-track positions in Machine Learning. We intend to establish a Machine Learning group that will interact with existing research activities and with those of the new systems group, as well as with researchers in related areas at Tulane.

We also welcome applications by outstanding candidates from other areas of computer science. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who are interested in helping us build a program that emphasizes the application of computer science to areas where its principles and tools can have a defining impact on the course of research.

All of these positions have the potential for a joint appointment with the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition – see http://www.ihmc.us.

Successful candidates for these positions will have internationally recognized research programs that include applications of computer science to science, engineering, the health sciences, or other areas where computer science is helping define new approaches to research. They also will have a demonstrated record of research funding and a documented record of excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A PhD in computer science is strongly preferred.

Application Instructions

A complete application should include a CV, statements on research and teaching, and at least three letters of recommendation. Applications for these positions will be reviewed starting January 1, 2016; the review and interview process will continue until all open positions are filled. These positions are subject to final administrative approval.
