Rice Computer Science invites applications for faculty positions

The Department of Computer Science at Rice University invites applications for tenured and tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks. Strong applicants in all areas of computer science are encouraged to apply.

Consistent with the National Academies’ report, Convergence: Facilitating Transdisciplinary Integration of Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Engineering, and Beyond, we are also seeking candidates who have a demonstrated ability to lead and work in research groups that “…[integrate] the knowledge, tools, and ways of thinking…” from engineering, mathematics, and computational, natural, social, and behavioral sciences to solve problems using a convergent approach. The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to teaching, advising, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds.

The positions will start in July 2020. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in computer science or a related discipline, or must complete the Ph.D. by November 1 of the year employment commences.

The application deadline for these positions is December 31, 2019. However, late applications may still be considered at the discretion of the faculty search committee. For more information, contact our department administrator, Karen Lavelle, at
