Job Description
The Department of Computer Science at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) in Rolla, Missouri is seeking outstanding applicants for multiple tenure-track faculty positions in all areas of Computer Science to begin in January or August, 2024. While the positions are primarily targeted at the assistant professor level, exceptional candidates could be considered for hiring at the tenured associate professor level. Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in cybersecurity or artificial intelligence. The department's current areas of strength include cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, smart and connected systems, cyber-human-physical systems, high-performance computing, wireless networks, Internet-of-Things, and quantum computing. Competitive salaries commensurate with the rank of the positions and qualifications of the candidates will be offered.

The successful candidates will be expected to contribute to departmental and college research efforts, exhibit high quality teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, perform service within the university and professionally, and demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion of both the student body and the faculty. Successful candidates will have a strong track record (or provide evidence of the potential for building one) in securing external research funding and teaching. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field by the appointment start date.

Missouri S&T’s Department of Computer Science has a proud 50+ year history of positively impacting society through ground-breaking research and advancing the quality and breadth of its educational mission, granting an ABET-accredited BS, as well as MS and PhD degrees. An active recruitment strategy has resulted in the department now being one of the largest on campus, with over 900 students. Nearly 1000 recruiters sought Computer Science graduates during the last academic year, including multiple national labs with whom we have long-established hiring pipelines as well as funded research collaborations. The department has several successful and engaged alumni and is strongly supported by the Academy of Computer Science, a 40-member organization dedicated to developing key programs of the department with financial support, and active engagement and advocacy.

Missouri S&T is one of the nation’s leading technological research universities with 98 degree programs in 39 disciplines. Located about 100 miles west of St. Louis in the multicultural community of Rolla, Missouri S&T is an accessible, safe, and friendly campus surrounded by Ozarks scenery. Missouri S&T offers degrees in engineering, the sciences, liberal arts, humanities, and business, with master’s and Ph.D. programs available in many of the science and engineering programs and master’s degrees in biological sciences, business administration and technical communication. With about 7,500 students enrolled on campus and online, Missouri S&T is big enough to accommodate a diverse population, yet small enough for individuals to build high visibility and impactful careers.

Missouri S&T’s Department of Computer Science, the campus, and the greater University of Missouri System are deeply committed to the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Missouri S&T has undertaken several initiatives to improve campus life and the work life balance of its faculty and staff (see ). Missouri S&T also seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples.
