Employment Opportunities

  • The Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Computer Science seeks applicants for tenure-track faculty positions at all levels and across all areas of computer science. The department will consider offers in two tracks: (1) an open track seeking excellent candidates across all areas of computer science; and (2) a track seeking candidates in the areas of human computer interaction (HCI), human AI interaction, computational health, artificial intelligence and machine learning. The search will focus on candidates at the junior level, but all qualified applicants will be considered.

    Plans for faculty growth in the department are aligned with School and University initiatives in health and AI. Additionally, the faculty will continue to grow by adding excellent and diverse candidates across all areas of computer science. The HCI search is part of a newly-launched initiative (http://hci.jhu.edu) that seeks to transform existing HCI research activities across the university by making several faculty hires within Computer Science.

    The Department of Computer Science has 31 full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty members, 8 research and 5 teaching faculty members, 200 PhD students, 200 MSE/MSSI students, and over 500 undergraduate students. There are several affiliated research centers and institutes including the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR), the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP), the JHU Information Security Institute (JHUISI), the Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science (IDIES), the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare (MCEH), the Institute for Assured Autonomy (IAA), and other labs and research groups. More information about the Department of Computer Science can be found at www.cs.jhu.edu and about the Whiting School of Engineering at https://engineering.jhu.edu.

    Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a teaching statement, three recent publications, and complete contact information for at least three references.

    Applications must be made on-line at http://apply.interfolio.com/69225. While candidates who complete their applications by December 15, 2019 will receive full consideration, the department will consider applications submitted after that date.

    The Whiting School of Engineering and the Department of Computer Science are committed to building a diverse educational environment: https://www.cs.jhu.edu/diversity/.
