Associate or Full Professor of Computer Science

We are excited to announce a new search for a chaired professor in the Study of Computation and Just Communities, to anchor an exciting new center on that topic.

The Dartmouth Computer Science department invites applications for The John G. Kemeny Professorship of the Study of Computation and Just Communities. Candidates should have a record of scholarly activity commensurate with an appointment at the rank of Associate Professor with tenure at an R1 institution. Candidates should have a record of research in machine learning with a demonstrated interest in investigating the connections of machine learning to its effects on society and equity. Examples of such work are - but not limited to - the intersection of machine learning with privacy, economic opportunity, algorithmic bias, remote sensing, and text and image processing/misinformation. The successful candidate will have an interest in working closely with Dartmouth College's newly created Wright Center for the Study of Computation and Just Communities. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field.

The Computer Science department is home to 24 tenure-track faculty members, and is committed to growing that number by 25-33% over the next decade, in a new dedicated Computer Science and Engineering Center whose construction is scheduled to be complete in 2021. The department has strong Ph.D. and M.S. programs and outstanding undergraduate majors.

Dartmouth is highly committed to fostering a diverse and including population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower income backgrounds, and first-generation college graduates. We seek candidates who have a demonstrated ability to contribute to Dartmouth's undergraduate diversity initiatives in STEM research, such as the Women in Science Program, E.E. Just STEM Scholars Program, and the Academic Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE). Applicants should state in their cover letter how their teaching, research, service, or experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth's commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
