Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science at Stanford University invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor). We give higher priority to the overall originality and promise of the candidate's work than to the candidate's sub-area of specialization within Computer Science.
We are seeking applicants from all areas of Computer Science, spanning theoretical foundations, systems, software, and applications. We are also interested in applicants doing research at the frontiers of Computer Science with other disciplines, including but certainly not limited to those in the engineering, mathematical, medical, physical, and social sciences.
Applicants must have completed (or be completing) a Ph.D., must have demonstrated the ability to pursue a program of research, and must have a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and to build and lead a team of graduate students in Ph.D. research. Further information about the Computer Science Department can be found at
Applications should include a curriculum vita, brief statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information of at least four references. Please apply online at http://soe-apps.stanford.edu/FacultyApplyCS. Questions should be directed to, Search Committee Chair, c/o Laura Kenny-Carlson, via electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The review of applications will begin on November 17, 2014, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit complete applications by that date for full consideration; however, applications will continue to be accepted until February 13, 2015.
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions to the university's research, teaching and clinical missions.
