Peter & Adrienne Barris Professor of Computer Science
Northwestern University has recently announced a substantial commitment to grow and transform Computer Science. We will add twenty new tenure-track faculty in the next five years—ten in core Computer Science, and ten collaboratively with other disciplines (CS + X)—as well as a number of non-tenure track teaching faculty. We seek outstanding candidates, in all areas and at all levels, with a clear passion to shape the future of Computer Science, and who are excited by the opportunity to help build that future at a great University.
As part of this plan, the Computer Science Division / EECS Department at Northwestern invites candidates to apply for a new position as the Peter and Adrienne Barris Professor of Computer Science at the Full or Associate Professor level. We seek candidates in all areas with a strong track record of intellectual leadership and a clear future research agenda. Priority will be given to applicants with pathbreaking research interests that have the potential to transform both Computer Science and other disciplines.
Northwestern is a world leading research and teaching university with an unrivaled combination of excellent schools that provide extraordinary opportunities for collaboration across a wide range of disciplines. Located just outside of Chicago – a diverse and culturally vibrant world-class city – Northwestern faculty have ample opportunities to connect with the city’s growing technology sector.
We encourage candidates to submit applications as soon as possible. Applications received by January 1, 2017 will be given full consideration. However, the position will remain open until filled. Applicants should submit (1) a cover letter indicating rank applied for, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) three to five references (4) statements of research and teaching interests, and (5) two representative publications. For general questions about the search or application assistance post-submission, contact email@example.com.
