Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure track faculty position at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor). We give higher priority to the overall originality and promise of the candidate's work than to the candidate's sub-area of specialization within Computer Science.
We are seeking applicants from all areas of Computer Science, spanning theoretical foundations, systems, software, and applications. We are also interested in applicants doing research at the frontiers of Computer Science with other disciplines, including but certainly not limited to those in the engineering, mathematical, medical, physical, and social sciences. Applicants must have completed (or be completing) a Ph.D., must have demonstrated the ability to pursue a program of research, and must have a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and to build and lead a team of graduate students in Ph.D. research. Further information about the Computer Science Department can be found at https://cs.stanford.edu. The School of Engineering website may be found at https://engineering.stanford.edu.
The Department of Computer Science, School of Engineering, and Stanford University value faculty who will help foster an inclusive academic environment for colleagues, students, and staff with a wide range of backgrounds, identities, and outlooks. Candidates may choose to include as part of their research and teaching statements a brief discussion about how their work and experience will further these ideals. Additional information about Stanford's IDEAL initiative may be found here: https://ideal.stanford.edu/about-ideal/diversity-statement.
- All applications should include a curriculum vita, list of publications, and brief (3-page total, combined, including references) statements of research and teaching interests.
- Applicants should submit the names and contact information of at least four references.

The review of applications will begin on December 4, 2023, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit complete applications by that date for full consideration; however, applications will continue to be accepted until January 19, 2024.
