Faculty Positions in Computer Science

The University of Rochester seeks applicants for three tenure-track assistant professor positions in the Department of Computer Science. While exceptional candidates will be considered in any area, we are particularly eager to hire in computer systems (distributed/cloud computing, networks, data management); security/cryptography; and AI/HCI (NLP, core machine learning, neurosymbolic AI, AR/VR). Candidates must have (or be about to receive) a doctorate in computer science or a related discipline.

Computer science at Rochester has a distinguished history of research in artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, systems, and theory. We nurture a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary culture, with exceptionally strong external funding and with active ties to numerous allied departments, including data science, brain and cognitive science, electrical and computer engineering, linguistics, optics, biomedical engineering, the laboratory for laser energetics, the school of education, and several departments in the medical center. Recent faculty hires have received a host of national honors, including NSF CAREER awards, the MIT TR35 award, honorable mentions in ACM dissertation competitions, multiple Google research awards, and best paper designations at top-tier conferences.

The University of Rochester is a private, Tier I research institution with approximately 6,600 undergraduates and 5,500 graduate students. We are deeply committed to building a more diverse and representative faculty, and strongly encourage applications from groups underrepresented in computer science and in higher education. The department has a vibrant Women in Computing / Minorities in Computing community, and was a charter member of the AnitaB.org BRAID Initiative, which leveraged funding from major industrial sponsors to foster diversity and inclusivity in the undergraduate program and to rigorously evaluate factors that contribute to change. We are actively working to improve the environment for all underrepresented groups.

Anchoring the Finger Lakes region of western New York State, the greater Rochester area is home to over a million people, and offers outstanding quality of life, with a thriving arts scene, excellent public schools, affordable housing, and a huge range of cultural and recreational opportunities. The University of Rochester is a member of the Upstate NY Higher Education Recruitment Consortium , a concerted effort to facilitate dual-career faculty hires, both within and across institutions.
