Assistant Professor of Computer Science, System and Network Security

The Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, with appointment beginning as early as July 1, 2023. Applicants should have a track-record of excellence in research and teaching, with a focus on the security and trustworthiness of computing devices connected via modern wireless connectivity. We seek applicants who have expertise in systems and network exploitation, with an emphasis on binary-level analysis of systems, formats, and interfaces. Specifically, we seek qualified candidates with a holistic view of technological challenges across multiple layers of underlying technological stacks of modern wireless connectivity such as 5G, Future-G, and other networking technologies, and of securing hardware and software stacks against state-of-the-art cyber attacks. An interest in applying formal methods to these topics is also desirable.

This position is part of a research cluster focused on cyber-security that is working towards future trustworthy connected devices with strong yet usable system security. In addition to faculty in the cluster, the Computer Science department includes other faculty working in security-related areas. Interested faculty are affiliated with Dartmouth's Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS), which also involves faculty from Government, Engineering, Sociology, and Business.

The Computer Science department is home to 24 tenured and tenure-track faculty members and three research faculty members, and is working towards a significant expansion in those numbers over the next decade, in a new dedicated Computer Science and Engineering Center.  Research areas of the department encompass the areas of security, computational biology, machine learning, robotics, systems, algorithms, theory, digital arts, vision, and graphics.  The department has strong Ph.D. and M.S. programs and outstanding undergraduate majors.

We seek qualified 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 Academic Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE). 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. Applicants should provide a statement of how their teaching, research, service, or experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth's commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field, or be All But Dissertation (ABD) with degree received by the start of the appointment.  Applicants with cybersecurity expertise from non-traditional professional tracks are also encouraged to apply.  Effective classroom teaching at the college-level is essential for this position.
