Tenure & Research Track Faculty Positions
We seek candidates who have demonstrated commitment to excellence and leadership in undergraduate and graduate teaching, research, and/or service toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.
The Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University was established in 1965 and is known worldwide for our broad view of computer science. We build upon the strong foundations our history has provided, and act quickly to explore new directions. We are fearless in pushing the frontiers of our field. Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon is also distinctive for our research style, educational programs, commitment to diversity, culture and organizational structure. It is the union of all these factors — not just one of them — that truly distinguishes us from other programs.
Tenure track candidates are expected to have a strong interest in research, outstanding academic credentials, and have earned their doctoral degree by the date of appointment as faculty. You should also have a strong interest in graduate and undergraduate education. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and under-represented minority students.
The full application should include:
- A letter indicating the research area
- Detailed curriculum vitae
- Research statement (including both current and future directions)
- Teaching statement
- Diversity statement (optional)
- Copies of 3 representative papers
- Names and email addresses of three or more individuals who have been asked to provide letters of reference.
Teaching Track Faculty Positions
The Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking faculty candidates for teaching track positions. Individuals seeking this position will be responsible for leading the growth of our curriculum, including improving educational outcomes and extending our reach. Appointments are expected to be at the Assistant Teaching Professor level, but applicants with significant experience in teaching and major impact in CS education may be considered for a higher level. Appointments at the level of Assistant Teaching Professor are for three years and renewable, with a career path for promotion to Associate and Full Teaching Professor. Teaching track faculty in the Computer Science Department are full voting members of the department.
Teaching track faculty are responsible for teaching courses as well as overseeing broader aspects of the educational program. They are able to work with some of the brightest students in computing in the recently opened Gates Hillman Center featuring numerous collaborative spaces and modern labs. Teaching is usually in our core courses alongside other faculty, providing critical insight on pedagogy and maintaining overall learning outcomes, but some teaching track faculty also teach in specialized areas. Additionally, teaching track faculty are given opportunities to perform other tasks, including advising students, outreach programs for students and teachers, creating new courses, writing course materials including books and online resources, and pursuing research. Teaching track faculty perform service on various committees alongside other faculty at the department, school, and university level.
Applicants should have a PhD in Computer Science or a related computing discipline, a background of demonstrated excellence and dedication to teaching, the ability to work well with other faculty in a fast-paced environment, and must be prepared to teach larger undergraduate lecture courses. Applicants should submit 3 references who will supply recommendations that address teaching skills and contributions to computer science education. Applicants must submit a teaching statement that describes their teaching philosophy, and are encouraged to submit a video sample demonstrating their teaching methods.
The department is committed to diversity in education, with the 2016 incoming undergraduate class including 48% women. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and underrepresented minority students. Applicants looking for a primarily research-based position or those who are looking to teach solely advanced courses are not a good fit for this position.

THE MARK STEHLIK POSTDOCTORAL TEACHING FELLOWSHIP
Applications are invited for the Mark Stehlik Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. This is a high-profile, one-year position, beginning Fall 2017, with a possibility of renewal for a second year. We seek recent PhD recipients in computer science with a strong interest, and demonstrated promise in teaching, who would like to gain teaching experience in a vibrant environment with a dynamic curriculum and excellent students. Candidates should have the ability to teach at all levels in the undergraduate curriculum.
In order to receive full consideration, applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and the names and email addresses of three or more individuals whom the applicant has asked to provide letters of reference.
