Job Description


Located in the heart of Chicago, the UIC CS department anticipates hiring multiple tenure track faculty at all ranks starting from Fall 2022 (with preference to candidates at the Assistant and Associate Professor ranks). Outstanding candidates in all areas who could complement and enhance current department strengths will be considered. Candidates working in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, Systems and Software, Computer Graphics, and related areas are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a PhD in Computer Science, Data Science, Information Systems, or closely related fields, and the potential for excellence in teaching and research.

The Department of Computer Science at UIC, which will be hiring between 15 and 30 new faculty in the next 5 years, has 40 tenure-system faculty, 4 research faculty with strong and broad research agendas, and 19 clinical/teaching faculty.

World-class amenities like the lakefront, arts and culture venues, festivals, and two international airports make Chicago a singularly enjoyable place to live.  Yet the cost of living, whether in an 88th floor condominium downtown or on a tree-lined street in one of the nation’s finest school districts, is remarkably affordable.
