Applications are invited for tenure-track faculty positions at the 
Assistant, Associate and Full Professor levels. Applicants should 
hold a doctorate in Computer Science or a closely related field, have 
a record of accomplishment in research, and demonstrate a strong 
commitment to teaching.

Building upon the impressive recruiting successes of the last two 
years that included eight new tenure-track faculty, the Department 
plans to fill three additional faculty positions. The Department 
continues to seek outstanding candidates likely to develop 
synergistic relationships with existing areas of research excellence. 
Academic couples seeking to co-locate are strongly encouraged to 
apply. Research groups in search of a highly supportive 
institutional environment may also want to consider relocating to 
Washington University. With the strong backing of the University and 
the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Department is 
committed to making significant investments in promising new areas of 
study and to providing the kind of resources and environment that 
will enable new faculty members to flourish intellectually.

levels of research activity, e.g., annual research expenditures 
recently reached a record $450,000 per faculty member. Research 
areas which are well represented in the Department include: 
networking and communications; distributed software systems; graphics 
and computer vision; artificial intelligence; computer and system 
architecture; and computational biology. Our doctoral graduates have 
been heading for successful careers in academia and industrial 
research centers while noteworthy entrepreneurial endeavors 
spearheaded by our faculty and graduates (with the full support of 
the University) attest to a highly respected technology transfer 
tradition and culture. Strict limits on University undergraduate 
enrollments combined with the increasing popularity of Washington 
University allows the Department to continue to offer small classes 
and close personal attention to a diverse student body of exceptional 
quality and to benefit from strong participation by undergraduates on 
a wide range of research projects. A faculty known for its friendly, 
accepting and supportive nature provides a welcoming and mentoring 
environment for new arrivals. Finally, progressive fiscal policies 
that reward research, teaching, and innovation by the Department have 
created an environment rich in resources that fosters a readiness to 
invest in promising new initiatives.

Prize Laureates have been associated with the University), its
