Tenured Associate Professor and Tenure-track Assistant Professor

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. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in computer science or a related discipline, or must complete the Ph.D. by November 1 of the year employment commences.

Please submit a CV, a research statement, a statement of teaching interests, and the names and addresses of at least three references through the RiceWorks portal.

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. More information contact the Computer Science Department Administrator, Karen Lavelle.
