Department Faculty Positions

Continuing Status-Track Position

The Computer Science Department at Brigham Young University currently has multiple open slots for continuing-status-track professorial and professional faculty positions to start Fall semester 2018.  If you would not like to apply for a position right now, but would like to be notified the next time a position opens, send your name and interest to recruiting@cs.byu.edu.  

BYU, an equal opportunity employer, requires all members of the faculty to observe the university's honor code and dress and grooming standards.  Preference is given to qualified candidates who are members in good standing of the university's sponsoring organization, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Professorial Continuing Status Track Faculty Position

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field and should have a strong research orientation and scholarly abilities together with strong teaching ability.  Outstanding candidates in all areas of computer science are encouraged to apply.  Professorial candidates are expected to develop a research program and advise M.S. and Ph.D. students in that area.  Current areas of research in our Ph.D. and M.S. can be found at: Computer Science Research.  Candidates are also expected to be able to teach effectively in both graduate and undergraduate environments as well as to be contributing citizens of the department and university.

Applicants for the Professorial Continuing Status Track faculty position may apply here.

Professional Continuing Status Track Faculty Position

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field and should demonstrate scholarly ability as well as the potential for excellence in teaching.  Outstanding candidates in all areas of computer science are encouraged to apply.  Professional candidates are not expected to develop a research program.  They are expected to carry a heavier teaching load and to focus on excellence in their teaching as well as to be contributing citizens of the department and university.

Temporary Positions

Often we have teaching positions available which range from one course for one semester up to full-time for one year. Applicants should have a Masters or Ph.D. degree in Computer Science or a related field or significant industrial experience.

Visiting Professorship

Applications are invited for visiting professorship positions beginning Winter 2018 or later.  Duties include teaching at the undergraduate (and possibly graduate) level, conducting independent research and supporting department, college and university goals.  Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.  Visiting positions are typically for a period of one year, but may be renewable in exceptional circumstances.

Adjunct Faculty

We are often looking for qualified candidates to serve as Adjunct Faculty members.  Duties include teaching undergraduate courses on a part-time basis (typically one per semester) over a variety of subjects.

 

Applicants for all positions may email or send a curriculum vita/resume and statement of intent to recruiting@cs.byu.edu. BYU, an equal opportunity employer, requires all faculty to observe the university’s honor code and dress and grooming standards.  Preference is given to qualified candidates who are members in good standing of the affiliated church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Future Needs

We feel strongly that the key to our future is the quality of faculty we hire. We are building a list of potential faculty candidates who could become part of the Department as openings become available in the future. We would like to make this need known to as many potential faculty members as possible. Many people do not realize the dramatic changes in the department over the last ten years. We have had a PhD program since 1986 and are performing substantive research in many areas.

You could really help out by letting us know of any possible candidates (including a way to get hold of them) who could combine solid research and teaching to improve our department. This includes people (yourself, if applicable) who have

  • A solid background in academic or industrial research
  • Have recently received the PhD in Computer Science or a related field or
  • Are currently in a PhD program.

We are just as interested in people who, though not currently in a position to consider BYU, might be in the next few years. We are putting together a list of current and future candidates so that we can stay in touch and monitor their interest. Please send E-mail to recruiting@cs.byu.edu with any questions or information you have. Thank you.
