Princeton CS hiring again this year

This year saw some great faculty additions to the CS department:

  • Mark Braverman in theoretical computer science,
  • Zeev Dvir in TCS and Math,
  • Rebecca Fiebrink in computational music and HCI (hired in 2010), and
  • David Wentzlaff in the EE department, although his work includes the very CS-like topics of computer architecture and operating systems.

This coming spring, we’re happy to be interviewing again at the Assistant Professor level. Rather than limit the search to any particular areas of focus, we’re looking for top applicants across all areas of computer science.

Tenure-Track Positions.

The Department of Computer Science at Princeton University invites applications for faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. We are accepting applications in all areas of Computer Science.

Applicants must demonstrate superior research and scholarship potential as well as teaching ability. A PhD in Computer Science or a related area is required. Successful candidates are expected to pursue an active research program and to contribute significantly to the teaching programs of the department. Applicants should include a CV and contact information for at least three people who can comment on the applicant’s professional qualifications.

There is no deadline, but review of applications will start in December 2011. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations. You may apply online at:

Like at many schools, the application cycle has shifted earlier a bit compared to previous years, so applicants are recommended to apply earlier rather than later. The website is already open.
