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 http://hr.mst.edu

seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples.
