We will also consider candidates who have the potential to make exceptional contributions to diversity and inclusion in computer science. We are eager to try to accommodate the needs of, and welcome applications from, dual career couples.
These positions are a part of a major expansion plan for the department as it works to increase its faculty roster by close to 50% over a five-year period. While many of these positions will be used to strengthen and expand core CS areas, some will be used to build bridges with other campus disciplines to facilitate interdisciplinary research and teaching. As a part of our overall plan, we are also emphasizing socially responsible computing throughout our curriculum and research.
The department has 35 tenured and tenure-track faculty members, 2 research faculty members, 6 lecturers (teaching faculty members), and several affiliated adjunct and visiting faculty members. In addition to its strong graduate program, the department has a strong undergraduate culture, anchored by a mature, endowed program for undergraduate teaching assistants and research assistants. Department members frequently take advantage of Brown's interdisciplinary culture via collaborations with numerous other Brown units including Applied Mathematics, Biology, Brain Sciences, Cognitive Linguistic and Psychological Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, and Visual Arts, as well as the Rhode Island School of Design. CS is a founding partner and plays key roles in major university-wide programs and initiatives including Data Science, Humanity Centered Robotics, Computational Molecular Biology, and the currently-launching Center for Computing for the People.
Applicants must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree by the start of the position. The initial appointment as assistant professor is for four years and is renewable.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, a CV, a teaching statement, and a research statement. Please also provide a diversity statement (which can be part of the teaching statement), in which you summarize your past and planned contributions to diversity and inclusion. These contributions may arise from teaching/mentoring, outreach, lived experience, or other activities. Applicants should also arrange for at least three letters of reference to be submitted through the application website. (For additional information about the university's and department's commitment to diversity and inclusion, see www.brown.edu/about/administration/institutional-diversity/pathways and www.cs.brown.edu/about/diversity.)

We will start application reviews and interviewing immediately and highly encourage early applications. Applicants who would like confidentiality should explicitly mention this desire in the first paragraph of their cover letters. To apply, please use Interfolio: LINK HERE.
