Department/Area: Computer Science
The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in Computer Science at the assistant or associate professor level, with an expected start date of July 1, 2021.
We invite applications from all areas of Computer Science. Areas of special interest include (but are not limited to) both machine learning and algorithms (broadly construed). There is also a tenure-track search in the theory of quantum information and computation, posted at http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/9835.
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, significant industrial collaboration, and substantial support from SEAS. Starting in Spring 2021, Computer Science will be among the founding occupants of Harvard's new Science and Engineering Complex, with ample space for growth and surrounded by state-of-the-art facilities. Information about Harvard's current faculty, research, and educational programs in computer science is available at http://www.seas.harvard.edu/computer-science.
The associated Institute for Applied Computational Science (http://iacs.seas.harvard.edu), Data Science Initiative (https://datascience.harvard.edu/), and Center for Research on Computation and Society (http://crcs.seas.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 a relevant 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. In addition, we ask for a statement describing efforts to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past, current, and anticipated future contributions in these areas. 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. At least one letter must come from someone who has not served as the candidate's undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral advisor. We encourage candidates to apply by December 15, 2020, but will continue to review applications until the position is filled.
