CIS Open Faculty Positions


Multiple Tenure-Track Positions

The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania is growing its faculty by 33% over the next five years. As part of this initiative, the Department of Computer and Information Science is engaged in an aggressive, multi-year hiring effort for multiple tenure-track positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels, with an emphasis on junior appointments. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science. Special preference will be given to candidates in areas of immediate need for the department including Machine Learning and Data Science, Computer Graphics, and Computer Systems and Architecture. Applications are encouraged from individuals working on high-impact areas such as autonomy, cybersecurity, embedded systems, or the interface with medicine, biology, and energy and environmental science.

We are especially interested in candidates whose interests are aligned with the school’s strategic plan:

The department seeks individuals with exceptional research achievement and potential, who will excel in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and take a position of international leadership in defining their field of study. Leadership in cross-disciplinary collaborations is of particular interest. Successful applicants will find Penn to be a stimulating environment conducive to professional growth.

We seek individuals who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. To ensure full consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply by November 30th, 2016. However, applications will be accepted until positions are filled. Apply here.
