The Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech is in a period of dramatic growth and opportunity. With substantial multi-year investments from the Commonwealth of Virginia and infrastructure investments by Virginia Tech, we anticipate hiring multiple faculty members at all ranks and in all areas for several years.  (Details regarding the 2022-2023 recruiting season will be posted in the Fall.)  We seek candidates motivated to contribute to a collegial, interdisciplinary community with a strong tradition of  fundamental and applied research and innovative teaching.  We embrace Virginia Tech’s motto, Ut Prosim (“That I May Serve”): we are committed to research, education, service, and inclusivity that makes a positive difference in the lives of people, communities, and the world.

The department currently has 76 faculty members, including 61 tenured or tenure-track faculty, 17 early career awardees, and numerous recipients of faculty awards from IBM, Intel, AMD, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Cisco and others. CS faculty members direct several interdisciplinary research centers, including the Center for Human-Computer Interaction and the Sanghani Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics. The department is home to over 1,400 undergraduate majors and over 600 graduate students, with university commitments to continue growing all programs. The department is in the College of Engineering, whose undergraduate program ranks 13th and graduate program ranks 31st among all U.S. engineering schools (USN&WR). The Mission of the College of Engineering is to educate and inspire our students to be critical thinkers, innovators and leaders.  Our core values are inclusiveness, excellence, integrity, perseverance and stewardship.

Virginia Tech's main campus is located in Blacksburg, VA, in an area consistently ranked among the country's best places to live. In addition, our program in the Washington, D.C., area offers unique proximity to government and industry partners and is also expanding rapidly, with Virginia Tech's exciting new Innovation Campus in Alexandria, VA, slated to open in 2024.  Candidates for faculty positions at the Innovation Campus are encouraged to apply to separate announcements for those opportunities.

The department fully embraces Virginia Tech’s commitment to increase faculty, staff, and student diversity; to ensure a welcoming, affirming, safe, and accessible campus climate; to advance our research, teaching, and service mission through inclusive excellence; and to promote sustainable transformation through institutionalized structures.
