Faculty Positions

The College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst will be posting multiple tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty positions this fall. We encourage you to check back later in September and apply for any listings you are interested in!

The College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) invites applications for tenure-track faculty at the Associate and Assistant Professor levels from computer scientists whose research applies a computational lens to challenges from other disciplines. Exceptional candidates at other ranks may be considered. This position is part of a new initiative to develop a top-quality informatics program based on our highly-rated computer science program and our significant interdisciplinary collaborations such as the Computational Social Science Institute and the Center for Data Science.

Candidates are expected to help build a nationally recognized research group and provide leadership in the formation of a new informatics program in the college, including developing and teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. We are accepting applications in all areas of interdisciplinary computer science research, but have the strongest need for individuals in human-computer interaction (HCI), information visualization, health informatics, and computational social science.

The College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty openings at the Associate and Assistant Professor levels in the broad area of Data Science. Exceptional candidates at other ranks may be considered. All areas of data science will be considered, including especially natural language processing, computer vision, machine learning, statistics, optimization, deep learning, reinforcement learning, game theory, fairness/accountability, systems for data science, theory for data science, as well as applications to computational economics, agriculture, ecology, education, biomedicine, images, and text.

The College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for tenure-track faculty in Theoretical Computer Science at the Associate and Assistant Professor levels. Exceptional candidates at other ranks may be considered. 

The College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is looking for exceptional PhD recipients who are interested in furthering their teaching experience as Teaching Fellows while maintaining research activity in preparation for a future faculty position. We encourage applications from recent PhD recipients as well as those expected to be conferred in the next year.

The College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) at the University of Massachusetts is looking for exceptional full-time and part-time teachers. We encourage applications from teachers in any area of the information and computer sciences, but we currently have the strongest need for faculty who can teach security, software engineering, theory of computation, artificial intelligence, health informatics, and data science courses.

The College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) invites applications for tenure-track faculty at the Associate and Assistant Professor levels in Information Retrieval (IR). Exceptional candidates at other ranks may be considered.  Candidates are expected to build on and complement the internationally recognized strength in IR at UMass. The Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval has been an important part of the research that has led to search engines being one of the most-used information technologies in current mobile and desktop environments. We are looking for a candidate to lead initiatives in conversational search, neural IR models, new approaches to interaction, or other developing areas of the field.

The College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for tenure-track faculty at the Associate and Assistant Professor levels whose research focuses on Software Engineering or Programming Languages, broadly construed, or related areas.  Exceptional candidates at other ranks may be considered.
