    The Department of Computer Science (CS) launched in 2020 a multi-year faculty recruitment and hiring process for 20 tenure-track positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels over and above normal hiring patterns, with preference at early-career appointments. In the first year of the initiative, the department welcomed eight new faculty members. In the second year, the initiative will support at least eight new faculty positions starting in the 2022-2023 academic year. Destination Vanderbilt-CS is part of the university's recently launched Destination Vanderbilt, a $100 million university excellence initiative to recruit new faculty.

    We seek exceptional candidates in broadly defined areas of computer science that enhance our research strengths in areas that align with the following investment and growth priorities of the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering:

    1. Cybersecurity and Resilience
    2. Autonomous and Intelligent Human-AI-Machine Systems and Urban Environments
    3. Computing and AI for Health, Medicine, and Surgery
    4. Design of Next Generation Systems, Structures, Materials, and Manufacturing

    Our priorities are designed to ensure the strongest positive impact on computer science and cross-disciplinary areas at all six academic departments in the School of Engineering and other colleges and schools across campus. The hiring initiative builds on these strengths and aspires to propel the Vanderbilt CS Department to one of the leading academic programs nationally and beyond. Successful candidates are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to develop and grow vigorous programs of externally funded research.

    Vanderbilt University has a strong institutional commitment to recruiting and retaining an academically and culturally diverse community of faculty. Minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and members of other underrepresented groups, in particular, are encouraged to apply. Vanderbilt is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
