The Department of Computer Science at Brown University seeks applicants for
a faculty position in the broadly construed area of graphics,
visualization, and interaction, including such diverse areas as
computational photography, interaction devices and systems, and information

The position is expected to start on September 1, 2016. We are particularly
interested in candidates whose research will help us build bridges to
university-level priorities in data science and humanity-centered robotics,
as well as other areas of strength in the department. We will consider
applications at all levels, with a preference for junior candidates. We
strongly encourage applications from women and under-represented minorities.

The department has 27 tenured and tenure-­track faculty members as well as
several adjunct, research, and visiting faculty members. Department members
frequently take advantage of Brown's interdisciplinary culture via
collaborations with numerous other departments and centers, including
Africana Studies, Applied Mathematics, Art, Biology, Brain Science,
Cognitive Linguistic and Psychological Sciences, Computational Molecular
Biology, Computer Vision, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine,
the Physical Sciences, and Psychology.

Brown University is located in Providence, RI, an hour from Boston and
about three hours from New York City. Providence is a small city with big
life: it has distinctive architecture, a vibrant arts
community, superb food, easy access to major East Coast metropolises,
and spectacular coastlines only minutes away. To learn more, go to

Applications should be completed by December 15, 2015. Applications will be
considered until the position is filled.

Inquiries may be addressed to faculty_search_2016 at lists.cs.brown.edu.


Junior applicants must have completed all requirements for the doctoral
degree by September 1, 2016. The initial appointment as assistant professor
is for four years and is renewable.

Application Instructions

All applicants must submit a curriculum vita and brief statements of
research and teaching interests. The department emphasizes  quality and
impact over quantity in evaluating the work of candidates, as also
recommended by the CRA, so applicants should also identify a small number
of the best results (papers, systems, etc.) for their contributions
are significant.

Applicants for a junior position must submit at least 3 letters of
reference; senior candidates must submit 5 names of references whom the
committee may contact.

Applications must be submitted via Interfolio; the application page is
http://apply.interfolio.com/32056, and requests all necessary information
from each applicant.

Please forward to potentially interested folks!
