The Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign invites applications for full-time tenure-track faculty positions at all levels (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Full Professor). While we welcome applications from exceptional candidates in all areas, we particularly encourage applications from candidates working in quantum computing, cloud computing and data centers, interactive computing (HCI, HRI, wearable computing, AR/VR, graphics), the intersection of systems/architecture and artificial intelligence/machine learning, and the social impacts of computing.

Applicants are required to have (or expected to receive) a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree in Computer Science or a related field. Additional qualifications include the ability to teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels and the potential to initiate and carry out independent research.

We seek applicants that will contribute to the diverse, vibrant, and inclusive atmosphere in the department as we strive to make computing's remarkable opportunities available to everyone through the continued expansion of our research and teaching activity in Urbana-Champaign, in Chicago, and online. Quantum computing faculty will engage with a growing campus and state-wide quantum research community through the new Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST) and the Chicago Quantum Exchange.

Qualified senior candidates may be considered for tenured Associate Professor and Full Professor positions as part of the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative in which new endowed professorships and chairs will be established in areas of strategic interest to The Grainger College of Engineering. Such areas include, but are not limited to, quantum, big data, machine learning, and robotics. More information about the Grainger Initiative can be found at
