Tenure Track Faculty Positions in Computer Science

The Yale Computer Science Department invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions to start in the 2021-2022 academic year. The University has been aggressively investing in its Science Initiative, and computer science, data science, and quantum science are among its top priorities. Qualified applicants in computer science are invited to apply, with a preference for artificial intelligence and machine learning, distributed systems, and other fields that align with the priorities identified in Yale's recent University Science Strategy Committee Report.

Applicants are expected to excel in both research and teaching. Yale provides many opportunities for research collaborations both inside and outside the Computer Science Department. Interdisciplinary work is encouraged, with Yale's world-class faculty in both the Faculty of Arts & Sciences and the professional schools. Yale faculty regularly have the opportunity to teach excellent students, both graduate and undergraduate. The department's home page can be found at http://cpsc.yale.edu/.

A candidate should hold (or expect to receive by the end of 2021) a Ph.D. in computer science or a related discipline. Applications submitted by December 15, 2020 will be given highest priority. Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter (optional), curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement, and three confidential letters of recommendation. Contact Susan Hurlburt at susan.hurlburt@yale.edu with any questions regarding the application. Please apply at: http://apply.interfolio.com/79922.
