Faculty Positions Available
The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Washington University seeks outstanding tenure-track faculty in all areas of computer science and engineering.
The department plans to grow its faculty size by 50% in the coming years. We seek multiple talented and highly motivated individuals who will build transformative research programs, both through work in the core disciplines of computer science and computer engineering and through interdisciplinary collaborations with researchers in areas such as biomedicine, engineering, and the sciences. Successful candidates must show exceptional promise for research leadership and a strong commitment to high-quality teaching. Candidates will be expected to publish their research in peer-reviewed journals, to teach, and to participate in department and university service.
Our faculty is engaged in a broad range of research activities. Some key strategic themes of our research include: tight integration of computation with the human and physical worlds, the extraction of knowledge from massive data sets; and the design of safe, secure, and scalable computing systems. The impact of our work is magnified through interdisciplinary collaborations throughout the School of Engineering; with colleagues in the sciences, arts, and humanities; and with our world-renowned School of Medicine. Our doctoral graduates go on to leadership positions in both academia and industry. The department values both fundamental and applied research and has a strong tradition of successful technology transfer. A faculty known for its collegiality provides a supportive environment for new arrivals.
Washington University is a private university with roughly 6,000 full-time undergraduates and 6,000 graduate students. It is nationally known for the exceptional quality of its student body and for its attractive campus, which borders residential neighborhoods and one of the nation’s largest urban parks. Many faculty walk or bike to work. St. Louis combines a Midwest cost of living with a vibrant metropolitan area, offering a wealth of cultural and entertainment opportunities.
We anticipate appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor; however, exceptionally qualified applicants may be considered for appointments at any rank. Applicants should hold a doctorate in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a closely related field. Qualified applicants should submit a complete application (cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and contact information for at least three references) through www.academicjobsonline.org. Other communications may be directed to Prof. Jeremy Buhler, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Campus Box 1045, Washington University, One Brookings Drive, St. Louis, MO 63130-4899.
Applications received by January 1, 2013 will receive full consideration. Washington University is an AA/EOE and is strongly committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty; minority and women applicants are especially encouraged.
