About us:

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Rochester has a distinguished history of research in artificial intelligence, HCI, systems, and theory. We nurture a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary culture, with exceptionally strong external funding and with active ties to numerous allied departments, including brain and cognitive science, linguistics, biomedical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and several departments in the medical center. Recent faculty hires have received a host of national honors, including the NSF CAREER award, MIT TR35 award, honorable mention in the ACM dissertation competition, multiple Google Research awards, and best paper designations at top-tier conferences. In 2015, we were one of only two CS departments nationwide to secure three NSF CRII awards for junior faculty.

The department is deeply committed to building a more diverse and representative faculty, and strongly encourages applications from groups underrepresented in higher education. We have a vibrant Women in Computing community and are a charter member of the ABI/HMC BRAID Initiative. With funding from the NSF, the CRA, and major industrial sponsors, BRAID works to increase diversity and inclusivity in the undergraduate program and to rigorously evaluate factors that contribute to change. In 2017, women constituted 33% of our BA/BS graduates, double the national average, and we are actively working to improve the environment for other underrepresented groups.

The University of Rochester is a private, Tier I research institution with approximately 5,000 undergraduates and a comparable number of graduate students. It had recently committed $50M to the multidisciplinary Goergen Institute for Data Science (GIDS), of which Computer Science is the leading department member- and which it shares the newly constructed state-of-the-art facility. Ongoing hiring in GIDS provides exciting opportunities for collaborations between computing and other disciplines.

Anchoring the Finger Lakes region of Western New York, the greater Rochester area is home to over a million people, and offers unsurpassed quality of life, with a thriving arts scene, major and minor league sports teams, outstanding public schools, affordable housing, and a huge range of cultural and recreational opportunities. Traditionally strong in optics research and manufacturing, the area was recently selected by the Department of Defense as a hub of a $600M Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation.
