RICE UNIVERSITY, Department of Computer Science

We are now accepting applications for tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty positions.

Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Positions

The Department of Computer Science at Rice University invites applications at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor. Strong applicants in all areas of computer science are encouraged to apply. Exceptional candidates at the Associate and Full Professor levels will also be considered. A commitment to excellence in both research and teaching is required for a tenure-track appointment, and teaching loads are low for tenure-track faculty to accommodate time for research. The positions will start in July 2017. 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. As part of its new Data Science Initiative, Rice University is conducting an independent search for data science candidates (see http://datascience.rice.edu for details). It is recommended that any applicant whose background overlaps with the CS search and the Data Science search apply to both searches.

Please submit a CV, a research statement, a statement of teaching interests, and the names and addresses of at least three references through the Department's website, http://csfacultyapplications.rice.edu. The application deadline for these positions is December 31, 2016. 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 can be found on our web site, http://www.cs.rice.edu, or by contacting the Computer Science Department Administrator, Karen Lavelle, at klavelle@rice.edu.

Non-Tenure-Track Teaching Faculty Positions

The Department of Computer Science at Rice University invites applications for non-tenure- track full-time teaching faculty positions in the broad areas of software and algorithms. Responsibilities will include teaching freshman- and sophomore-level courses that use Python and Java, both on-campus and on-line, during the academic year. Opportunities for summer employment are also available through course development and/or research efforts. These positions will start in August 2017. Please submit a CV, a statement of teaching interests, and the names and addresses of at least three references through the Department's website, http://csfacultyapplications.rice.edu. The deadline for applications for these positions is January 31, 2017. 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 non-tenure- track teaching position. More information can be found on our web site, http://www.cs.rice.edu or by contacting the Computer Science Department Administrator, Karen Lavelle, at klavelle@rice.edu.

Research Scientist and Postdoctoral Research positions

Associated research groups led by faculty members in the Department may also have openings for research scientists and postdoctoral researchers on an ongoing basis. The availability of these research positions is contingent on external funding. For further details, please contact faculty members in the research areas of your interest.
