Assistant and Associate Professor Positions The Department of Computer Science at Rice University invites applications at the ranks of tenured Associate Professor and tenure-track Assistant Professor. Strong applicants in all areas of computer science are encouraged to apply.
Exceptional candidates at the Full Professor level will also be considered. A commitment to excellence in both research and teaching is required for a tenure-track appointment, and successful candidates will have a strong commitment to teaching, advising, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds. Teaching loads are low for tenure-track faculty to accommodate time for research. The positions will start in July 2019.
Please submit a CV, a research statement, a statement of teaching interests, and the names and addresses of at least three references. The application deadline for these positions is December 31, 2018. However, late applications may still be considered at the discretion of the faculty search committee. Please specify clearly in your cover letter that you are applying for a tenure-track faculty position. To start an application, click on the “Apply for this job” button at the top of this posting. More information can be found on our web site, http://www.cs.rice.edu, or by contacting the Computer Science Department Administrator, Karen Lavelle, at email@example.com.
Related Tenure-track Faculty Positions As part of its new Neuroengineering Initiative, Rice University is conducting an independent search for neuroengineering candidates, including those working on computational, data, and theory-driven approaches to improve our understanding of the function of the brain (see http://www.neuroengineering.rice.edu/apply-now-to-become-a-part-of-the-team for details and to apply). It is recommended that any applicant whose background overlaps with the CS search and the Neuroengineering search apply to both searches.
Teaching-track Faculty Positions The Department of Computer Science at Rice University invites applications for teaching track (non-tenure-track) full-time teaching faculty positions in the newly created Online Master's of Computer Science Program. Responsibilities will include teaching fully online courses during the academic year. These positions will start as early as Spring 2019.
Research Sceintist and Postdoctoral Researcher Positions Associated research groups led by faculty members in the Department may also have openings for research scientists and postdoctoral researchers on an ongoing basis. The availability of these research positions is contingent on external funding. For further details, please contact faculty members in the research areas of your interest.
