Junior Faculty Fellows Program

The Hariri Institute for Computing’s Junior Faculty Fellows program aims to both recognize outstanding early-career computing and data-driven researchers at Boston University and support their continued development by connecting them with one another and with the Institute community at large through various mechanisms and activities.

From social sciences, humanities, law, business, and medicine to engineering, computer science, and statistics, the Junior Faculty Fellows Program is committed to enabling and supporting a community of researchers across schools and colleges at BU.
