The Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado (CU)
Boulder seeks applications for multiple tenure-track positions. The
openings are targeted at the level of assistant professor, but experienced
candidates may be considered for associate or full professor. Research
areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, security,
systems, high-performance computing, computational science and engineering,
and data-driven approaches to robotics (especially mobile manipulation).
Computational biology is also an area of particular interest, and
interested applicants should apply to the joint BioFrontiers and Computer
Science search (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__biofrontiers.colorado.edu_about_careers_careers&d=DQIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=mgbEF7OroNUIqSBXbCnoErqkcTo5nS9t70TblZeMjwI&s=O577x6pj_THLC97VUSZZ7DRGEnRU8NsrJitjgKxGYCg&e= 
Our department is committed to fostering an inclusive environment, and we
seek candidates who understand the benefits of interdisciplinary
collaborations with students, faculty and other researchers from across CU.
Our department is also responsive to dual career situations.

Successful candidates are those who demonstrate the potential for
excellence in both research and teaching, including a commitment to
teaching and working with undergraduate and graduate students of varied
backgrounds. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in computer science or a related
discipline and show promise and interest in developing an independent and
internationally recognized research program.

Applications received by December 1, 2016 will be given priority, although
applications will be evaluated until the position is filled. Applications
must include a cover letter specifying the applicant's areas of
specialization and describing their interest in the Department of Computer
Science at CU Boulder. Applications must also include a curriculum vitae,
statements of research and teaching interests, and names and contact
information for three references. In their statements, candidates should
describe specific examples of how their experience would contribute to the
department, including, but not limited to, their research record,
pedagogical approaches, teaching content, mentoring and recruiting
activities, community engagement, and experience working with
underrepresented groups.

The Department's research and education efforts interact broadly with many
interdisciplinary programs and collaborators in the Boulder area, including
national labs at NIST, NOAA, NREL, and NCAR, and CU Boulder research
institutes including the ATLAS Institute, the BioFrontiers Institute, and
the Institute for Cognitive Science. The Department has a long-standing
partnership with the National Center for Women and IT and has faculty
active in increasing the broadening of participation in computer science
via their research, teaching, and service. The Department also has
extensive ties with the thriving local tech community and inhabits a
picturesque location in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
