The Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech is growing rapidly. Thanks to substantial multi-year investments from the Commonwealth of Virginia combined with significant infrastructure investments by Virginia Tech, we anticipate hiring multiple faculty members at all ranks and in all areas for the next several years. The majority of new positions will be at our main campus in Blacksburg, VA. We also seek outstanding candidates for our program in Northern Virginia, which is rapidly expanding due to Virginia Tech’s exciting new Innovation Campus in Alexandria, VA, where computer science academic and research programs will play a central role.
We seek candidates at all ranks and in all areas of computer science. The positions offer competitive packages and resources to enable success. Candidates with core research interests in AI/ML, computer systems, human-computer interaction, cybersecurity, blockchain systems, high-performance computing, computational science, and quantum computing are especially encouraged to apply.
The department currently has 52 faculty members, including 46 tenured or tenure-track faculty, 14 early career awardees, and numerous recipients of faculty awards from IBM, Intel, AMD, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and others. CS faculty also provide leadership in several interdisciplinary research centers, such as the Center for Human-Computer Interaction and the Discovery Analytics Center. The department is home to approximately 1,000 undergraduate majors and 300 graduate students, with university commitments to grow all programs significantly. The department is in the College of Engineering, whose undergraduate program ranks 13th and graduate program ranks 31st among all U.S. engineering schools (USN&WR). Virginia Tech’s main campus is located in Blacksburg, VA, in a region consistently ranked among the country’s best places to live. Our growing program in Northern Virginia offers graduate education and research with one-of-a-kind proximity to government and industry partners.
Candidates with a clear campus preference (Blacksburg or Northern Virginia) should indicate this in their cover letter. Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Ali R. Butt, search committee chair, at email@example.com.
