Faculty Hiring

Assistant Professor Positions

The Computer Science Department at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions in any area of computer science starting from fall 2017. Areas of special interests are operating systems, algorithms, networking/Internet of Things, cybersecurity, computer graphics, and virtual reality. While we expect that the hiring will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, exceptional candidates at higher ranks will be considered.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree by summer 2017 in a relevant discipline with outstanding academic credentials that demonstrate their ability to conduct independent and successful world-class research, and a commitment to both undergraduate and graduate education. The successful candidate will contribute to and enhance existing research and educational programs that relate to the areas of our special interests. The ability to bring in external funding is critical.

The department includes 29 tenured/tenure track professors and is rapidly expanding, supported by the university’s “2020 Vision” strategic plan. Sources of research funding include DARPA, NSF, NIH, DHS, DOE, ARL, and ONR. Located in Northern New Jersey, within the greater New York Metropolitan area, NJIT is part of a vibrant ecosystem of research universities and corporate research centers. NJIT is committed to building a diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
