Tulane University is a private Carnegie-R1 university and a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU). Tulane brings together bold and creative scholars, scientists and students who are committed to crossing boundaries. Data-intensive discovery lies at the heart of research and education at Tulane, and is fueled by the Data Hub, Tulane’s new Center for Data Literacy. Tulane resides in historic New Orleans, Louisiana – a city that takes the utmost pride in its vibrant music scene, world-class restaurants, rich confluence of cultures and traditions, and festive Mardi Gras parades. "The things that make life worth living – eating, drinking and the making of merriment – are the air that New Orleans breathes." - Adam Karlin, Lonely Planet. The Princeton Review ranks Tulane at or near the top for Most Engaged in Community (#1), College City (#1), Happiest Students (#4), Best-Run College (#4), and Quality of Life (#9).
The department is looking to expand expertise in all areas related to data-intensive computing. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, databases, visualization, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Outstanding candidates from other areas will be considered as well, for example in quantum computing or programming languages/compilers. The candidate should demonstrate a strong potential to engage in high quality research and teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level To support junior faculty in establishing their research program, assistant professors in our department teach at most one course per semester.
Tulane Professors of Practice are faculty who design, enhance, and teach courses, and provide departmental and university service. Their term appointments are renewable every three years (initially) and every five years after promotion to Senior Professor of Practice. The typical teaching load is three courses per semester (two preps). Tulane recognizes and rewards innovative and quality teaching. Candidates interested in creating and adopting pedagogical innovations, conducting scholarly activity in computer science education, or developing original elective courses will find many opportunities and support to pursue their interests. The successful candidate will have a record of excellent teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate level, and commitment to student-centered teaching and to increasing diversity in computing.
Review of applications for all positions will begin December 15, 2022, and will continue until the positions are filled.
