Job Details

Assistant or Associate Professor of Computer Science & Statistics

Northwestern University has recently announced a substantial commitment to grow and transform Computer Science. 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.  We seek outstanding candidates, in all areas and at all levels, with a clear passion to shape the future of Computer Science, and who are excited by the opportunity to help build that future at a great University.

As part of this plan, the Computer Science Division / EECS Department and the Statistics Department at Northwestern invite candidates to apply for a new joint position as Professor of Computer Science and Statistics at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. We are collaborating, together with Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences (IEMS), to create a multidisciplinary research group in the areas of machine learning and data science. Building on existing strengths in applied AI, applied statistics, and optimization, as well as the recent creation of a Center for Optimization & Statistical Learning, the University is seeking to hire up to three new faculty in these areas this year.

Northwestern is a world leading research and teaching university with an unrivaled combination of excellent schools that provide extraordinary opportunities for collaboration across a wide range of disciplines. Located just outside of Chicago – a diverse and culturally vibrant world-class city – Northwestern faculty have ample opportunities to connect with the city’s growing technology sector.

We encourage candidates to submit applications as soon as possible: Applications received by January 1, 2017 will be given full consideration. However, the positions will remain open until filled. Applicants should submit (1) a cover letter indicating rank applied for, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) three to five references (4) statements of research and teaching interests, and (5) two representative publications. For general questions about the search or application assistance post-submission, contact

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer of all protected classes, including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Women, underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States.
