About the Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science (CS) is one of the oldest CS departments in the country. It is one of the three departments in the School of Computing and Information. We are located in Pittsburgh, PA, frequently voted as one of the most livable cities in the U.S., with a vibrant education, technology, culture, and sports environment. The Pittsburgh "story" is one of resilience and adaptation, which made the city known for its "eds and meds" (education and medical institutions) on the national and international stage. Our department is a community that includes 22 full-time tenure-stream faculty, nine appointment-stream faculty, more than 100 graduate students, more than 900 pre-CS/CS majors, and thousands of alumni. The department places a high priority on diversity, social justice, and inclusive excellence in research and teaching.
The Department of Computer Science is seeking candidates for an Assistant Professor from all areas of AI to create methods, theory and practice to solve critical societal problems. We are interested in emerging areas of AI and Machine Learning (ML); theoretical foundations of AI/ML; AI, fairness and ethics; and traditional areas of AI that complement the current strengths of the department in natural language processing, machine learning and computer vision, such as knowledge representation, planning or multi-agent systems.
The Department of Computer Science is inviting applications for two teaching assistant professor positions. The department is looking for candidates who are eager to use pedagogical approaches and inclusive practices and have experience teaching in any of the following areas: algorithms and theory; computer systems (especially cloud computing, HPC, and mobile computing); data science, probability, and statistics; and software engineering and software quality assurance.
