There are currently two faculty positions open.

----------

Position #1 in Quantum Computing

The University of Notre Dame is expanding the scope of its quantum science and technology community to include quantum computing, and are looking for new faculty with appropriate expertise. These new faculty members and their students are expected to pioneer the development of novel quantum computing applications in chemistry, physics, and engineering, to create tools for increasing the efficiency of quantum computers, and to develop quantum algorithms and techniques to address new application areas such as data analytics. In addition, with the College of Science and the University's Center for Research Computing, the College of Engineering has established a partnership with the IBM Q Network, and is seeking new faculty who wish to collaborate in this quantum computing effort.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks with expertise in quantum computing paradigms and applications.  We seek to attract, develop, and retain excellent faculty members with strong records and future promise.  The Department is interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the University’s academic community through their research, teaching, and service, and especially take a leadership role in the University's initiatives in quantum computing.

The Department offers the Ph.D. degree and undergraduate Computer Science and Computer Engineering degrees.   Faculty are expected to excel in classroom teaching and to lead highly-visible research projects that attract substantial external funding.  More information about the department can be found at: http://cse.nd.edu/

Applicants must submit a CV, a teaching statement, a research statement, and contact information for three professional references at https://apply.interfolio.com/65332.

The University is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer; we strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, veterans, individuals with a disability and those candidates attracted to a university with a Catholic identity.

Position #2 in Computational Social Science

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the College of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for an open rank faculty position in Computational Social Science. Candidates should possess an earned Ph.D. in computer science or in a social science field that makes extensive use of computational methods in research. Home departments include Computer Science and Engineering, Sociology, Political Science, or other units in College of Arts and Letters with the opportunity for cross appointments with other colleges and departments. Applications at the ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor will be considered; exceptional candidates may be considered for appointment to a chaired professorship.

Notre Dame is supporting interdisciplinary efforts that integrate computer and data science with a variety of scholarly disciplines, including the social sciences, humanities, and creative arts. University-wide undergraduate minors in Computers and Digital Technologies and Data Science provide integrative opportunities across disciplines. This hire is intended to grow and, where appropriate, provide leadership and strategic direction to interdisciplinary research as well as foster growth in undergraduate opportunities.

Applicants must submit a cover letter, CV, research statement, teaching statement, and contact information for three professional references to http://apply.interfolio.com/65475. At later stages of the process we may request a writing sample. Review of applications will begin on October 15th, 2019 and remain open until the position is filled. Questions may be directed to Professor Tim Weninger (tweninger@nd.edu).
