About TTI-Chicago

TTI-Chicago is a philanthropically endowed academic institute dedicated to fundamental research and graduate education in computer science. In addition to producing cutting-edge research — TTI-Chicago faculty are routinely published at top conferences and recognized with distinctions, such as Sloan Research Fellowships, NSF Career Awards, and Best Paper Awards — TTI-Chicago offers world-class graduate education. At the same time, TTI-Chicago faculty members enjoy a uniquely light teaching load, which helps them focus on their research. TTI-Chicago research assistant professor alumni have an excellent employment track record (http://www.ttic.edu/faculty-alumni/).

 Located on the University of Chicago campus, TTI-Chicago has strong ties to the University. Moreover, TTI-Chicago faculty members frequently collaborate with colleagues from leading academic institutions, including the top neighboring universities. TTI-Chicago supports travel and visitor hosting through annual research funds for research and tenured faculty, and start-up packages for tenure-track faculty. In addition to having access to TTI-Chicago's excellent computing infrastructure, faculty members have access to many of the University of Chicago's state-of-the-art facilities.

 TTI-Chicago's faculty and students enjoy the close proximity of a vibrant urban environment with flourishing culture, business, and entertainment scenes.

 We invite candidates with an outstanding academic record and a passion for computer science research to join our world-class team of 11 tenured/tenure-track faculty and 8 research faculty members.
