Faculty Recruiting

Fall 2021 faculty recruiting is now closed. Please check back for our 2022 faculty recruiting announcement coming soon.

Robotics Candidates: If your research area is robotics, please also send your cover letter and CV to faculty_jobs_robotics@utlists.utexas.edu along with an indication that you have applied to the computer science department. This will ensure that your application is connected to the university-wide robotics search.

UT Computer Science strongly encourages potential applicants to apply as soon as they are able to do so. We interview candidates at all times of year and early applicants will be interviewed in the fall.

Faculty growth in UT Computer Science will be significant and sustained. We are recruiting in all areas. 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.

The department is very fortunate to be housed in a new, state of the art facility, 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 more than $600 million. The University’s Department of Computer Science boasts a top-ten ranking for its graduate program with corresponding top-ten rankings in the major subfields of artificial intelligence, systems, theory, and programming languages.

Austin 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, Apple, Google, IBM, National Instruments and Oracle. Our ecosystem is rich with mid-sized companies with a hi-tech focus, including Indeed, VMWare, HomeAway, Zynga, Evernote, to name just a few.

Austin is a thriving city with a booming economy and a high quality of life that consistently place it at the top of lists for “Best Places to Live in the US.” 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.
