Department of Computer Science

The Computer Science Department at the University of Rochester ( seeks applicants for tenure-track faculty positions. Candidates in all areas of computer science and at any level of seniority are encouraged to apply. We have a distinguished history of research in artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, systems, and theory. We are continually on the lookout for unique hiring opportunities and synergies, including but not limited to growing and complementing our strengths in theory, security, natural language processing, machine learning, and advanced AI (e.g., multimodal, explainable, edge, health).

Candidates must have (or be about to receive) a doctorate in computer science or a related discipline. Applications should be submitted online (at no later than January 1, 2020, for full consideration; submissions beyond this date risk being overlooked due to limited interview slots.

We nurture a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary culture, with exceptionally strong external funding and with active ties to numerous allied departments, including brain and cognitive science, electrical and computer engineering, linguistics, optics, biomedical engineering, the laboratory for laser energetics, the school of education, and several departments in the medical center. Recent faculty hires have received a host of national honors, including the NSF CAREER and CRII awards, the MIT TR35 award, honorable mentions in ACM dissertation competitions, multiple Google research awards, and best paper designations at top-tier conferences.

The department is deeply committed to building a more diverse and representative faculty, and strongly encourages applications from groups underrepresented in higher education. We have a vibrant Women in Computing community, and are a charter member of the ABI/HMC BRAID Initiative. With funding from major industrial sponsors, BRAID works to foster diversity and inclusivity in the undergraudate program and to rigorously evaluate factors that contribute to change. We are actively working to improve the environment for all underrepresented groups.

The University of Rochester is a private, Tier I research institution with approximately 5,000 undergraduates and a comparable number of graduate students.

The university's Center for Integrated Research Computing provides a hub and infrastructure for computing-related activities within the university. The university has also recently committed $100M to the multidisciplinary Goergen Institute for Data Science (GIDS), of which Computer Science is the leading departmental member — and with which it shares a newly constructed state-of-the-art facility. In partnership with Harris Corporation, GIDS received $22.5M in state support toward establishing the Rochester Data Science Consortium. Ongoing hiring in GIDS provides exciting opportunities for collaboration between computing and other disciplines.

Anchoring the Finger Lakes region of western New York State, the greater Rochester area is home to over a million people, and offers unsurpassed quality of life, with a thriving arts scene, outstanding public schools, affordable housing, and a huge range of cultural and recreational opportunities. Traditionally strong in optics research and manufacturing, the area was recently selected by the Department of Defense as the hub of a $600M Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation.
