The Department of Computer Science at North Carolina State University (NCSU) is expanding. The Department is seeking faculty at all ranks to fill multiple tenured/tenure-track faculty positions with an expected (but flexible) start date of August 16, 2022.  The Department welcomes applications in all areas of Computer Science, but we are particularly interested in candidates whose primary research areas include: 

  1. Artificial Intelligence, including all areas with particular interest in machine learning, data science, natural language processing, intelligent user interfaces, multiagent systems, and advanced learning technologies. 

  2. Computer Networks, including all areas.

  3. Computer Systems, including big data, cloud and high performance computing, machine learning systems, parallel I/O, heterogeneous storage and compute systems, operating systems, and compiling for parallelism.

  4. Cyber-Physical Systems, including robotics; IoT; autonomous vehicles (avionics and others); control systems; hybrid systems; data-driven and learning approaches for CPSs; and reliability, safety, and usability of CPSs.

  5. Cybersecurity, including all areas with particular interest in usable security, formal methods for security, programming language security, and secure and trustworthy AI.

  6. Software Engineering, including all areas with particular interest in architecture, human-computer interaction, requirements, and scalable methods for formal and automated analysis. 

  7. Theoretical Computer Science, including all subfields.


Successful candidates must have a strong commitment to academic and research excellence, and an outstanding research record commensurate with the expectations of a major research university. Required credentials include a doctorate in Computer Science or a related field.


The Department, part of NC State’s College of Engineering, is one of the largest and oldest in the country. The department’s research expenditures and recognition have been growing steadily.  For example, we have one of the largest concentrations in the country of prestigious NSF Early Career Award winners (30 of our current or former faculty have received one).  Further, we are widely recognized as a highly diverse department, having one of the highest numbers of female tenure-track faculty in a computer science department in the country.


NC State is located in Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, which forms one vertex of the world-famous Research Triangle Park (RTP). RTP is an innovative environment, both as a metropolitan area with one of the most diverse industrial bases in the world, and as a center of excellence promoting technology and science. The Research Triangle area is routinely recognized in nationwide surveys as one of the best places to live in the U.S.  We enjoy outstanding public schools, affordable housing, farmer’s markets and festivals, and great weather - all in proximity to the mountains and the seashore.
