Harvard University: Tenure Track Position in Computer Science

The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) seeks applicants for a position at the tenure-track level in Computer Science, with an expected start date of July 1, 2018.

We are accepting applications in all areas of Computer Science, especially machine learning, programming languages, and human-computer interaction.

We seek candidates who have a strong research record and a commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching and training. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.

Computer Science at Harvard benefits from outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, world-leading faculty, an excellent location, significant industrial collaboration, and substantial support from the Harvard Paulson School. Information about Harvard’s current faculty, research, and educational programs in computer science is available at www.seas.harvard.edu/computer-science.

The associated Institute for Applied Computational Science (iacs.seas.harvard.edu) and Data Science Initiative (datascience.harvard.edu/) foster connections among computer science, applied math, data science, and various domain sciences at Harvard through its graduate programs and events.

A doctorate or terminal degree in Computer Science or a related field is required by the expected start date.

Required application documents include a cover letter, CV, a statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and up to three representative papers. Candidates are also required to submit the names and contact information for at least three and up to five references, and the application is complete only when three letters have been submitted. We encourage candidates to apply by December 1, 2017, but will continue to review applications until the position is filled.
