The Cornell University Department of Computer Science (CS) in the college of Computing and Information Science (CIS) has multiple tenured and tenure-track faculty positions available at its Ithaca campus. Cornell CS is ranked among the top computer science departments in the country. Ithaca, NY, is in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. Both Cornell and Ithaca offer a vibrant cultural life and a wide range of sporting and outdoor activities with the pleasures of both city and country close at hand.

Applications from all areas of computer science and related fields are welcome. 

Faculty hired in these positions will be members of the Department of Computer Science, which spans the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but their teaching and research will be based in Ithaca.

To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2019, but will be accepted until all positions are filled.
