University of Pittsburgh School of Computing and Information Faculty Positions

As the University of Pittsburgh’s newest school, the School of Computing and Information (SCI) is a growing interdisciplinary community of faculty, staff and students who are accustomed to thinking beyond boundaries and innovating new approaches to lead our institution and nation to positive change. Since 2017, SCI has recruited nearly forty new faculty members, and we are continuing our growth with multiple openings in the tenure stream this year.

SCI’s interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and education spans computer science, informatics and networked systems, and information culture and data stewardship with rich connections to partners in education, health sciences, medicine, engineering, social sciences, business and other areas.

This year, we have tenure-stream positions in quantum computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and learning sciences, and appointment-stream (teaching) positions in computer science and data science. Our quantum position is coordinated with Quantum Science Initiative, the Pittsburgh Quantum Institute, and other units at Pitt. The AI and Learning Sciences position is joint with the Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC), which is a University Research Center dedicated to advancing the science of learning by bringing together researchers from the cognitive, developmental, social, educational, and computational sciences.

We place a strong emphasis on diversity, social justice, and inclusive excellence, and we are actively seeking faculty colleagues who share a deep commitment to these principles and contribute to the broadening of participation in computing through their research, education, service, engagement, and lived experiences. We promote an equitable and inclusive community through faculty development and mentorship, promotion of work-life balance, a program for dual-career couples, and a commitment to recruit, retain, and develop faculty from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
