The Schwarzman College of Computing is increasing MIT’s academic capacity in computing and AI with 50 new faculty positions — 25 located within the college and 25 shared with other academic departments.

Core faculty positions

Multiple searches to recruit core faculty in computer science (CS) and in artificial intelligence and decision making (AI+D) will be active in the upcoming academic year. Faculty in these positions will be appointed in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), which jointly reports to the Schwarzman College of Computing and the School of Engineering.

Links to active job postings will be added on a rolling basis.

Shared faculty positions

During the 2021–2022 academic year, there will be searches for faculty positions shared between the college and an academic department. These searches will be conducted around six strategic areas of inquiry and the positions will have a shared appointment in both the academic department and in the college, in either EECS or in the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society.

Searches will occur with each of the five schools at MIT, in the following strategic areas. Links to active job postings will be added on a rolling basis.
