Faculty growth in the Computer Science department will be significant and sustained. We are recruiting in all areas and at all levels. We especially invite groups of faculty that would like to continue a collaboration, or to establish one. But, all candidates with a passion for research and teaching and the ambition to change the world are encouraged to apply.

Bill & Melinda Gates Computer Science ComplexThe department is ecstatic about our new facility, named the Bill & Melinda Gates Computer Science Complex. The $120 million facility opened in February 2013. It consists of 140,000 net-assignable ft2 in two LEED certified buildings connected by an atrium that incorporates collaborative bridges and terraces on four upper floors; the north building, named Dell Computer Science Hall, is conjoined with the Institute for Computational Engineering and Science, which comprises over 200 faculty and researchers in computer science and its areas of application. 

The University of Texas at Austin is one of the nation’s leading research universities with annual research funding of nearly $500 million. UT is second only to Harvard in the number of National Merit Scholars enrolled, and is ranked the 13th Best Public University1, and the seventh highest producer of undergraduate degrees to minority students2.

Austin, TXAustin is a major hub of hi-tech industry and entrepreneurial activity, providing many opportunities for collaboration. Major companies in Austin, with a focus on hardware or software development, include Dell, AMD, IBM, National Instruments and HP. Our ecosystem is rich with mid-sized companies with a hi-tech focus, including Centaur, Bazaarvoice, HomeAway, Zynga, Evernote, to name just a few. 

Austin is a wonderful town with many of the benefits of a big city. Cosmopolitan, yet laid back, it is the live music capital of the world, and the home of SxSW and Austin City Limits.  Austin has a subtropical climate with lush vegetation and rolling hills along with the Colorado River and the Highland Lakes.
