Job Opening: Teaching Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computer Science, 
Northwestern University

Northwestern University has recently announced a substantial commitment 
to grow and transform Computer Science (CS) 
[https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.northwestern.edu_newscenter_stories_2016_06_major-2Dexpansion-2Din-2Dcomputer-2Dscience.html&d=DwIF-g&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Q05bquIc7BtHwdMYbzozUOkeJjzNWGPf_Alt1VAs1lM&s=Cxqkc7rt6Q_-ubRwhWeawXkHmgiEpSDb9TzmoLYjD4M&e= ]. 
We will add twenty new tenure-track faculty in the next five years---ten 
in core Computer Science, and ten collaboratively with other disciplines 
(CS + X)---as well as a number of non-tenure track teaching faculty.

To support this growth of our faculty, increase our research impact, and 
meet growing student demand, we invite applications for multiple 
Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computer Science. Combining research with 
teaching duties, these positions come with attractive benefits and will 
have considerable autonomy, while still enabling close mentoring by and 
collaboration with Northwestern faculty members. The teaching load is 
one course per quarter over the three quarter academic year (including 
an advanced-level course in the candidate’s research area). These are 
two-year positions, with the possibility of renewal for an additional year.

We encourage candidates to send applications as soon as possible; 
appointments begin Fall 2017 quarter. Applications received  by March 
31, 2017 will be given full consideration; however, the positions will 
remain open until filled. Applicants should submit (1) a cover letter, 
(2) a curriculum vitae, (3) three to five letters of reference, (4) 
statement of research goals, (5) statement of teaching philosophy, and 
(6) two representative publications.
