Faculty Positions - Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty Positions


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, 2023.  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 and Advanced Technology for the Digital Transformation of Education, including artificial intelligence and data mining in education, natural language processing and/or intelligent interfaces in learning environments, and computer science education at all levels.
  2. Cyber-Physical Systems, including (but not limited to) IoT, robotics, aerial and ground autonomous vehicles, networks, control systems, hybrid systems, data-driven and learning approaches for CPS, and reliability, safety, and usability of CPS.
  3. Cybersecurity, including all areas with particular interest in usable security, formal methods for security, programming language security, and secure and trustworthy AI.
  4. Software Engineering, including all subfields, especially those complementing the directions of the current SE faculty.
  5. 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.

The Department of Computer Science, like the College of Engineering of which it is a part, is committed to building an academic environment that is welcoming to students, staff and faculty members from all backgrounds, including members of groups that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields. As part of its current expansion, the Department seeks to identify a broad cross section of new faculty hires.
