The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at The Catholic University of America invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level, beginning January or August 2024.
All areas in Computer Science will be considered, however, the areas of robotics and machine learning will be given special attention. We intend to establish Catholic University as a thought leader in the area of ethics in machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers bachelor’s degrees (ABET accredited) and graduate degrees (MS and PhD). For more information about the department please visit engineering.catholic.edu/eecs.
We seek candidates who understand, are enthusiastic about, and will make a significant contribution to the “mission of the University”.
Duties include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses as assigned by the department chair, developing a sustainable, externally funded research program, supervising graduate and undergraduate students, and pursuing scholarly publications and professional activities. Qualified candidates must have an earned doctorate in computer science (anticipated completion prior to starting the position is acceptable).
