The Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering at Michigan State University is in a phase of significant and sustained growth and expansion. We are pleased to invite applications at all ranks and in all areas of Computer Science, including those that intersect with other fields. Multiple tenure-system faculty positions are available.


The Department is looking for highly motivated applicants who can complement the department’s strength and expertise. Cluster hires will also be considered. Candidates must have an earned PhD in computer science or a related field. Tenure-system computer science faculty are expected to establish a vibrant, sustainable and internationally visible research program; make significant scholarly contributions to their discipline; be an effective teacher and mentor of both undergraduate and graduate students; and engage in institutional and professional service as well as public outreach.


The Department has strong research programs in all major areas of Computer Science and Engineering. The department has accredited B.S. degree programs in Computer Science and Computer Engineering. There are currently over 170 graduate students and 1,400 undergraduate students in the department. Department faculty are actively involved in leading several national-level centers, including BEACON, an NSF Center for the study of evolution in action that is headquartered at MSU. MSU’s annual research expenditure is around $695M. University researchers and scholars are internationally renowned and are facilitating broad social, economic and technological impact.


MSU enjoys a park-like campus with outlying research facilities and natural areas. The campus is adjacent to the city of East Lansing and the capital city of Lansing. The Lansing metropolitan area has a diverse population of approximately 470,000. Local communities have excellent school systems and place a high value on education.

Applicants must submit (a) a cover letter summarizing their qualifications and highlighting up to five prominent works, (b) a detailed resume, (c) two vision statements: one describing their planned research program, and the other describing their teaching philosophy, including mentoring, outreach, and promoting a diverse and inclusive environment, and (d) the names and contact information of at least three references. For full consideration, applications should be received before November 1, 2019. Applications will be reviewed on a continuing basis thereafter until all positions are filled. However, the search committee reserves the right to begin the evaluation process before November 1, 2019, and issue offers on a rolling basis.
