Faculty Openings

The Department of Computer Science at Stanford University invites applications for tenure track faculty positions at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) and for tenured faculty positions at the Associate Professor level. 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. Junior 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 http://cs.stanford.edu. The School of Engineering website may be found at http://soe.stanford.edu.

Application Requirements:

  • All applications should include a curriculum vita, list of publications, and brief statements of research and teaching interests.
  • Applicants for Assistant rank positions should submit the names and contact information of at least four references.
  • Applicants for Associate rank positions should also submit the names and contact information of at least four references. We will request letters of recommendation for a short list of finalists only.

Please apply online at https://www.applyweb.com/cgi-bin/app?s=STANFAC. You will need to create a CollegeNet account if you do not already have one. Questions should be directed to, Search Committee Chair, c/o Laura Kenny-Carlson, via electronic mail to search@cs.stanford.edu.

The review of applications will begin on November 17, 2017, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit complete applications by that date for full consideration; however, applications will continue to be accepted until January 14, 2018.

The Schools of Engineering and Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University (http://soe.stanford.edu/ and https://humsci.stanford.edu) invite applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) in the broadly defined field of quantum science and engineering with particular emphasis on all aspects of quantum computing and information. Priority will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any particular specialization area or department affiliation.

Applicants should have a Ph.D., evidence of the ability to pursue an independent program of research, a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching, and the ability to initiate and conduct research across disciplines. A successful candidate is expected to be appointed in one or two of the departments of Applied Physics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, or Physics, although a joint appointment with another department or with SLAC will be considered depending on the candidate’s research area and teaching plan. The 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.

Applicants must send materials to the search committee through Academic Jobs Online. Candidates should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, a research and teaching statement (maximum three pages, combined), and arrange to have five letters of reference submitted online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9550

Inquiries may be directed to J. Tice, Dept. of Physics, 382 Via Pueblo Mall, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305-4060, or to tice@stanford.edu.

The due date for submission of all materials, including letters of reference, is December 1, 2017.
