CIS Faculty Positions

The Department of Computer and Information Science at Fordham University is undergoing a rapid expansion in both its undergraduate and graduate programs, and Fordham’s administration is committed to increasing the department’s local and national distinction in research and science education. The department offers undergraduate programs at Fordham’s Rose Hill campus in the Bronx and Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan. The department also offers graduate degrees in Computer Science, Data Analytics, and Cybersecurity at its Manhattan campus.

The department invites applications for department chair, assistant professors, and lecturer/postdocs, to start fall 2017. The chair position requires distinguished research, an excellent record of external funding, significant administrative experience, and strong experience in program development, collaborative academic leadership, and teaching. The tenure track positions require a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field, a commitment to teaching excellence, and an active program of research with the potential to attract external research funding. One of the assistant professor positions must be in the area of cybersecurity, but applications in all areas of CIS are encouraged for the second position, although applicants in the area of database systems are especially encouraged to apply. The department also has several positions for lecturers and postdocs. Lecturer positions (MS required, Ph.D. preferred) are one year renewable with a 4-4 teaching load and postdoc positions are renewable for up to three years with a 3-3 teaching load.
