Boston University Computer Science has openings for two tenure-track assistant professorships beginning July 1, 2020. Areas in which our searches are particularly focused are data-centric computing, machine learning, robotics, human-computer interaction, and graphics. However applications in all areas of computer science are welcome and will be carefully considered.
The Department is in the midst of an extended period of sustained growth, and is looking to both deepen areas of existing strength as well as to broaden into additional, new areas. Over the past 6 years, the tenure track faculty size has grown by 50%, with corresponding increases in graduate student population as well as in space and other resources. In December 2019, Boston University will break ground on a new 17-story, 350,000-square-foot Data Sciences Center, to house Computer Science along with other units contributing to Data Science (https://www.bu.edu/articles/2018/data-sciences-center-architectural-design/)
Boston University, which has steadily increased in rankings over the past decade, is committed to nurturing and supporting interdisciplinary and cross-departmental research. BU is situated centrally in Boston, a vibrant city with an enormous range of options for industrial and academic collaboration around technology.
The Computer Science Department consists of a diverse group of 31 tenured and tenure-track faculty members, with research strengths in data mining, databases, graphics, image and video computing, machine learning, natural language processing, networking, distributed systems, operating systems, software design and implementation, real-time systems, security and cryptography, and theory of computation and algorithms. In addition, members of the Department collaborate closely with faculty across the university including mathematics and statistics, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, biology, earth and environment, economics, law, and medicine, among others. Additional information about the Department is available at http://www.bu.edu/cs.
Boston University as well as the Computer Science Department expect excellence in research and in teaching and are committed to building a culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse scholarly community (https://www.bu.edu/info/about/diversity/). To apply, go to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/14654. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2019 and continue on a rolling basis.
