The Department of Computer Science ( at Hunter College of The City University of New York invites applications for a position at the rank of Full Professor to begin in August of 2017. The Department specifically seeks applicants with an extensive independent research record that will augment Hunter's bioinformatics group with expertise in an area that that the group lacks. Data visualization expertise would be especially welcome. Candidates with interdisciplinary research interests that intersect with other local research institutions are encouraged to apply. Evidence of a strong research program that can attract undergraduates is essential. Applications seeking appointment at a rank below Full Professor will not be considered.

Located on the 68th Street campus on the upper east side of Manhattan, the small but diverse faculty of the Computer Science Department at Hunter works closely with students and each other in an open and collegial atmosphere. Hunter has both a teaching and a research mission and the candidate will be expected to teach core undergraduate computer science courses as well as electives within their area of research and share responsibility for committee and other departmental assignments.

Preferred candidates will be able to work collaboratively and contribute to departmental strengths in teaching and research, and be able to lead efforts to broaden participation in computing both across disciplines and to diverse populations across the campus. A proven record that engages undergraduates in research and historically underserved students in computer science, via publications and external funding, is essential. Applications that demonstrate experience developing and coordinating multi-section introductory courses, incorporating active learning into the classroom, secondary school outreach, and placing students in research or industrial internships are particularly encouraged.


Ph.D. degree in Computer Science or Mathematics with a specialization in computation is required. Also required are: the ability to teach successfully, demonstrated scholarship or achievement, and ability to cooperate with others for the good of the institution.

Candidates must have an outstanding record of scholarly publications and funding commensurate with an appointment with tenure at the rank of Full Professor at Hunter College. In addition, a history of external funding and credentials suitable for appointment to the CUNY doctoral faculty in Computer Science are required which will enable the successful candidate to teach doctoral level courses and mentor Ph.D. students.
