Tenure-Track/Tenured Positions In Computer Science

Illinois Institute of Technology
Department of Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology seeks applications for tenure-track positions starting in Fall 2018, with a preference for appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor, although extremely highly-qualified candidates may be considered for appointment at higher rank. Exceptional candidates may also be considered for a Chris Gladwin Junior Development Chair.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related field, demonstrated excellence in research, a record of attracting external research funding appropriate to their rank, and a strong commitment to teaching. While excellent candidates from all areas of computer science will be considered, candidates in Programming Languages, Security, Database, Data Science, and Computer Systems are especially encouraged to apply.

The Department of Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology has recently received a major gift and is in the middle of significant growth in enrollments and hiring as well as space and infrastructure improvements. The Department offers B.S, M.S., and Ph.D., degrees in Computer Science, and several of its faculty members are NSF CAREER Award winners and IEEE/ACM/AAAS fellows.

Illinois Institute of Technology, located within 10 minutes of downtown Chicago, is in the final stages of a successful capital campaign that has led to the creation of several endowed positions, increased funding for scholarships, and construction of the new Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship.

Evaluation of applications will start on December 1, 2017 and continue until the position(s) are filled. Illinois Institute of Technology is an EEO/AA/Title VI/Section 504/ADA/ADEA employer committed to enhancing equity, inclusion and diversity within its community.
