Applications are invited for multiple faculty positions in the Computer Science program within the College of Engineering and Science (COES) at Louisiana Tech University for highly qualified research faculty and educators. The vision of the College of Engineering and Science at Louisiana Tech is to be a world leader in integrating engineering and science in education and research.  The College is experiencing significant growth in computational research initiatives through DoD and allied funding agencies. We are therefore undertaking an aggressive faculty recruiting campaign. To build a diverse workforce, the college encourages applications from women, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and minorities. We are especially interested in candidates who are merging fundamental theory, concepts, and approaches with interdisciplinary domain knowledge to address key societal challenges. 

Louisiana Tech is designated as a national university by the 2018 U.S. News & World Report college rankings. COES currently enrolls almost 3,000 students, including over 200+ masters and 140+ doctoral students. Annual research expenditures of the College have averaged $10M+ over the past three years. The College is opening a new $37M Integrated Engineering and Science Education Building this fall that will provide 128,000 square feet of space to expand its focus on project-driven curricula. COES launched the nation's first B.S. in Cyber Engineering in 2012, and has recently embarked on a bold partnership to significantly grow capacity and graduates in computer science, cyber engineering and related areas to support targeted research and development efforts in the region. More details about the college and the programs of Computer Science and Cyber Engineering are available at: http://coes.latech.edu. Both undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered in the disciplines.

To apply, send a letter of inquiry with curriculum vitae to cscfacultysearch@latech.edu with the subject line "CS Faculty Application:".

Outstanding candidates can also be nominated with a corresponding letter of qualification. Review of applications and nominations will begin immediately, and will continue until suitable candidates are identified. Letters of inquiry can be submitted to Dr. Galen Turner, Director of Computer Science and Cyber Engineering, at gturner@latech.edu.

Louisiana Tech University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.


All areas of specialization will be considered, but we are particularly interested to hire candidates whose interests are primarily focused in cyber-security and artificial intelligence. These candidates must have earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Cyber Engineering or a closely related field. Proven research track record, outstanding teaching skills, excellent written and oral communication skills, and a demonstrated commitment to high-quality student success are expected. Successful candidates will be expected to perform exceptional research, procure extramural funding to support research, advise graduate and undergraduate students, collaborate with other faculty, and teach effectively both at undergraduate and graduate levels.
