About TTI-Chicago

TTI-Chicago is a philanthropically endowed academic

institute dedicated to fundamental research and graduate

education in computer science. TTI-Chicago produces

cutting-edge research (our faculty routinely publish their

results at top conferences and are recognized with

distinctions such as the Sloan Research Fellowships, NSF

CAREER Awards, and Best Paper Awards) and offers world-

class graduate education. At the same time, TTI-Chicago

faculty members enjoy a uniquely light teaching load, which

helps them focus on their research. TTI-Chicago research

assistant professor alumni have an excellent employment

track record (https://www.ttic.edu/faculty-alumni/).


Located on the University of Chicago campus, TTI-Chicago

has strong ties to the University. In addition to having access

to TTI-Chicago's excellent computing infrastructure, faculty

members have access to many of the University of

Chicago's state-of-the-art facilities. TTI-Chicago faculty

members frequently collaborate with colleagues from leading

academic institutions around the world. Moreover, TTI-

Chicago supports travel and visitor hosting (through annual

research funds for research and tenured faculty and start-up

packages for tenure-track faculty).


TTI-Chicago's faculty and students enjoy the close proximity

of a vibrant urban environment with flourishing culture,

business, and entertainment scenes.


We invite candidates with an outstanding academic record

and passion for computer science research to join our world-

class team of 12 tenured/tenure-track faculty

and 11 research faculty members.


Teaching Requirements

Tenure-track faculty teach one quarter per year. Research

faculty have no teaching duties, but have the opportunity to

teach and co-advise students.


TTI-Chicago/Simons-Berkeley Joint Program

Applicants for research assistant professor (RAP) positions in

relevant areas are encouraged to simultaneously apply for

to participate in a program at the Simons Institute before

joining TTI-Chicago. Please note that applicants interested in

the joint program must submit separate applications to TTI-

We will start reviewing applications on December 1, 2019,

and will continue until the positions are filled.
