Tenure-Track Faculty in Computer Science
Colorado State University
Department of Computer Science


The Department of Computer Science at Colorado State University (CSU) solicits applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor beginning fall 2017. Exceptional candidates at the Associate Professor level will also be considered. Applicants must have a Ph.D.in Computer Science or a related area and demonstrate potential for excellence in research, teaching and service.

One of the two positions is for a data scientist with demonstrated research excellence in areas such as machine learning, large scale data modeling, analytics, information retrieval, bioinformatics, and computational biology. The second position is open to all areas of computer science. However, we particularly encourage applicants in Human Centered Computing and Human Computer Interaction. Applicants in Data Science may apply for both positions.

The department has over 750 undergraduate majors and 190 graduate students in Master's and Ph.D. programs. The department has 22 tenure-track faculty with strong research programs in artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, bioinformatics, computer vision, networks, parallel and distributed computing, algorithms, security, and software engineering.

Colorado State University is a Carnegie Research I institution located in Fort Collins, 60 miles north of Denver, against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Enhanced by relationships with CSU, Fort Collins has become a magnet for highly innovative new industries, and it is at the forefront of clean and alternative energy technologies, software/hardware sectors, telecommunications, aerospace and biotechnology. Northern Colorado's strengths are increasingly recognized at a national level, for example in the recent "Places of Invention" exhibit at the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of American History. Fort Collins also consistently ranks high in quality of life polls (http://www.fcgov.com/visitor) and the Rocky Mountains provide world-class outdoor recreational opportunities.
