In 2022-2023, UNT plans to recruit for the following faculty positions in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE).

Tenure-track positions:

Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in Computer Science and Engineering. The College of Engineering has established college-wide priorities for the areas of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, Autonomous Vehicles, Digital Manufacturing, and Smart Sensors. The department plans to contribute to these priorities by hiring faculty in our existing strength areas of Algorithms and Computation Science, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science, Computer Systems and Networking, Cybersecurity, and Software Engineering. Candidates who can contribute to one or more of the department’s existing strengths and/or college priority areas, are especially encouraged to apply. We welcome applications from almost all areas of computer science and computer engineering; if you have concerns whether you fit, please contact us.

The candidates for these positions are expected to teach CSE undergraduate and graduate courses, develop a strong research program funded by external sources, support and mentor graduate students, and provide service to the University and the profession. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in computer science, computer engineering or a closely related field. For an Assistant Professor position, a strong publication record and the potential to succeed in securing research funding and mentoring graduate students are required. For an Associate Professor position, a sustained record of providing mentoring to junior faculty, advising graduate students, providing service to the University and profession, and securing external funding for research activities are also required.
