Assistant Professor Job Application

The Computer Science Department at Stevens Institute of Technology invites applications for three open tenure-track positions, with appointments to begin in either January 2016 or August 2016, at mutual convenience. Special consideration will be given to candidates in machine learning, visual computing, or secure systems at the assistant professor level. However, outstanding applicants at other levels and/or in other areas of Computer Science may also be considered.

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field, a record that suggests the potential to achieve national prominence in research, and a strong commitment to teaching and student mentoring. A successful candidate will be expected to conduct a vigorous, externally funded research program and to teach and innovate curricula at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Computer Science Department is a small, dynamic environment that includes three present NSF CAREER awardees and designation by NSA as both a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education and a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research. Most faculty have extensive research programs externally funded by agencies including NSF, NSA, DHS, NIH, ONR, ARO, and others; the department has two NIH R01 grants. Areas of research emphasis include visual computing, machine learning, and cybersecurity. The student body consists of approximately 300 undergraduate majors, 400 Masters students, and 25 doctoral students. Class sizes are small, and the students are talented (middle 50% SAT range 1260-1400) and well prepared for a technical education. Distinguished adjunct professors, many drawn from nearby research centers, augment our full time faculty.

Stevens is a private technological university located in Hoboken, New Jersey. The Institute's small size eases cross-department and inter-disciplinary research ties and teaching programs. The 55-acre campus is on the Hudson river across from midtown Manhattan within a few minutes from New York City via public transportation. Hoboken is an upscale small city, the residence of choice for many professionals working in NYC. Faculty live in Hoboken, Manhattan, and in suburban communities in Northern New Jersey along commuter train lines to Hoboken and NYC. Stevens's location offers excellent opportunities for collaborations with nearby universities such as NYU, Princeton, Columbia, and Rutgers/DIMACS as well as major industrial research laboratories such as Bell Labs, AT&T Labs, IBM Research, Google NYC, Siemens, and the Sarnoff Corporation.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, teaching and research statements, and at least three references. PDF is preferred for all application materials and reference letters.

Review of applications is underway. Those seeking a January 2016 start date should apply immediately. Those seeking an August 2016 start should apply no later than December 15, 2015 to receive fullest consideration.

Stevens Institute of Technology is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Stevens is building a diverse faculty, staff, and student body and strongly encourages applications from females and minority candidates as well as veterans and individuals with disabilities.
