Positions

Postdoc Opportunities

Prestigious 3-year Research Instructorships in Theoretical Computer Science and Machine Learning

The Department of Computer Science, in collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Study, offers two 3-year positions for outstanding new Ph.D.’s working in theoretical aspects of computer science, including machine learning. Combining research with teaching duties, these positions come with attractive benefits and working conditions. Typically, the first and third years of these appointments are spent at Princeton University and the second year is spent conducting research (without teaching duties) at the Institute for Advanced Study. These arrangements are flexible. The typical teaching load in the first year of the position is a single one-semester course. The IAS has no teaching duties.

Candidates are expected to complete a PhD in Computer Science or a related field, no later than September 1, 2018, for a September 2018 start. Please include a CV, research statement, teaching statement, and 3 letters, of which one should address teaching abilities.
