Carnegie Mellon University: College of Engineering: Information Networking Institute (INI)

The Information Networking Institute (INI) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is soliciting applications for faculty at all levels for CMU’s main campus in Pittsburgh, PA, and Silicon Valley campus in Mountain View, CA. We are primarily seeking teaching track faculty candidates, however there are opportunities for special track faculty and/or research track faculty jointly with other departments at Carnegie Mellon.

The INI offers graduate degree programs in information networking, information security and mobile and IoT engineering at CMU’s Pittsburgh and Silicon Valley campuses. Our department was founded in 1989 in response to a demand from industry for professionals skilled in both computer science and communications. What began as a small fledgling program has evolved over the past three decades to become an integral academic unit of CMU’s College of Engineering (a Top Five engineering school as ranked by U.S. News and World Report) and home to a diverse community of more than 300 students each year from across the world. Given the interdisciplinary nature of our programs, INI students have the unprecedented flexibility to take courses across disciplinary boundaries, such as: computer science, engineering, public policy, management, machine learning and human-computer interaction, among others.

The INI Faculty Experience

We are seeking faculty candidates in our core technical areas of networking, security and mobile and IoT engineering, including but not limited to: mobile computing, embedded systems, Internet of Things technologies, telecommunications, data analytics and machine learning, information security, software security, network security and cyber operations. Outstanding candidates in other areas related to networking, security and mobile and IoT engineering are encouraged to apply. Teaching faculty play a vital role in advancing the INI's educational mission; we value candidates who are dedicated to enhancing student learning and demonstrate a passion for teaching a diverse student population.

From our uniquely interdisciplinary program structure and applied learning opportunities to our supportive advising model and exceptional student services, the INI is committed to delivering a transformational educational experience for our graduate students. Teaching track faculty have a primary responsibility of designing and leading courses and projects for INI, in addition to advising and mentoring students. They also have opportunities to pursue activities that align with their interests, such as advising student-led, industry-sponsored projects. Overall, INI faculty play an influential role in advancing the department’s strategic initiatives. For example, faculty contribute to our holistic student advising model and have the opportunity to shape the incoming class of students they will teach through their engagement in the admissions process.

Our Collaborative and Inclusive Culture

We believe our people -- students, alumni, faculty, and staff -- are our core strength. We emphasize excellence, integrity, respect, collegiality, interdisciplinarity, continuous improvement and engagement in community, all within a welcoming, supportive and inspiring teaching and learning environment. We cultivate an inclusive culture that celebrates and values a diversity of opinion and intellectual perspective from all individuals, regardless of ethnic origin, race, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, and self-identity. We are particularly interested in applicants who are committed to, and have a passion for, a culturally diverse environment in teaching and research, and who demonstrate a willingness to nurture the inclusive Carnegie Mellon environment.

CMU is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its community on a range of intellectual and cultural dimensions. Carnegie Mellon welcomes faculty applicants who will contribute to this diversity through their research, teaching, and service, including: women, members of minority groups, protected veterans, individuals with disabilities, and others who would contribute in different ways.
