Faculty Positions in Computer Science Starting Fall 2020 New Orleans, LA
Tulane Computer Science is Hiring!
The Tulane Computer Science Department anticipates several tenured or tenure-track hires beginning in Fall 2020. Applications are encouraged from leading researchers who are attracted by the opportunity to join a unique program whose focus is equally on computer science and on its applications to research in related areas. Our current faculty are engaged in collaborative research projects with colleagues in the School of Science and Engineering, as well as with colleagues in the School of Liberal Arts, and with colleagues in the Health Sciences. The department currently has 7 tenured /tenure-stream faculty and two Professors of Practice; we anticipate attaining a critical mass of 12 faculty within the next year, and a stable state of 15 faculty within the following 2 – 3 years.
We are pleased to announce the following openings:
