Located in the heart of Chicago, the Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) invites applications for many full-time tenure-track positions at all ranks. All candidates must have a doctorate in Computer Science or a closely related field by the appointment’s starting date. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate excellence in research and teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

We seek candidates in all areas of computing, at all levels, with special but not exclusive interest in fields related to speech and/or natural language processing, computer vision, programming languages and compilers, machine learning, human-computer interaction, data science, and computer systems. Over the next few years, we expect to hire multiple faculty in all of those areas and many others. Applicants working at the intersection of computer science and related disciplines are also encouraged to apply.

Applications must be submitted at https://jobs.uic.edu/, and must include a curriculum vitae, teaching and research statements, and names and addresses of at least three references in the online application. Links to a professional website and Google Scholar, ResearchGate, or similar profiles are recommended, but not required. Applicants may contact the Faculty Search Chair at search-chair@cs.uic.edu for additional information. For fullest consideration, apply by November 15, 2017. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.

The rapidly growing department of Computer Science at UIC has 33 tenure-system faculty – 13 of whom are NSF CAREER award recipients – with strong and broad research agendas.

UIC is committed to increasing access to education, employment, programs and services for all. The University of Illinois is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Minorities, women, veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply. UIC is responsive to the concerns of dual-career couples.

Chicago epitomizes the modern, livable, vibrant, and diverse city. World-class amenities like the lakefront, arts and culture venues, festivals, and two international airports make Chicago a singularly enjoyable place to live. Yet the cost of living, whether in an 88th floor condominium downtown or on a tree-lined street in one of the nation’s finest school districts, is remarkably affordable.
