Of interest are persons with collaborative potential or experience with life sciences or the physical sciences. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field, and must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree by the start of the position.

 A research-intensive liberal arts university, Brandeis fosters highly collaborative science both within and between departments and is currently conducting multiple searches that will strengthen cross-disciplinary studies across the sciences.  The suburban campus in Waltham, MA is just 20 minutes from the bustling academic and biotechnology centers of Boston and Cambridge. Brandeis is a member of the Association of American Universities, and is ranked in the top 35 by US News.

The Computer Science department has 12 regular faculty members who have a teaching load of one course per semester and diverse research interests. Our outstanding undergraduates, currently 50 per year, attain positions across industry as well as elite graduate schools. The department benefits from collaborative opportunities within the University and the greater Boston area. It offers a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and several Master’s degree programs that collectively produce another 60 graduates per year. The department also hosts the Linguistics major, and our Master's program in Computational Linguistics is nationally recognized.

Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.  Diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to Brandeis’ primary mission of providing a quality education.  The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their creative endeavors, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis’ reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students for a pluralistic society.
