Carnegie Mellon University

Tenure-track Position in the Institute for Software Research

The Institute for Software Research (ISR) in Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science seeks candidates with strong academic credentials and compelling research vision for tenure-track faculty appointments at the rank of assistant, associate, and full professor.

Our research and educational programs focus on societal computing and software engineering. We are interested in candidates across these areas. We particularly encourage applications from candidates with interests in social network analysis and network science. ISR already has strength in these areas, as showcased by our IDeaS and CASOS centers, which we are seeking to extend and complement.

To apply, please submit your materials by Dec 18, 2020 via the SCS application page and mention ISR in the cover letter or societal computing as an area of interest.

We are especially interested in candidates with diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to excellence and leadership in research, undergraduate and graduate teaching, and/or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly community. We particularly seek candidates with a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and underrepresented minority students. In keeping with the CRA best practices on evaluating scholarship, we pay close attention to a candidate’s educational contributions, research quality and impact as opposed to arbitrary numerical measures of productivity. Carnegie Mellon considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of, gender, race, protected veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and any additional legally protected status.

ISR is an academic department with forty faculty members whose research portfolio includes network analysis, security and privacy, social media analysis, Internet of Things, software engineering, mobile systems, and related topics. These interdisciplinary topics build on core computer science, human and organizational behavior, and policy and business considerations. ISR hosts two PhD programs and several master’s programs, with more than a hundred affiliated graduate students.
