Cornell Tech* is a graduate research and education site focused on creating pioneering leaders and technologies for the digital age. This search encompasses both Cornell University faculty positions and faculty positions that are part of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute** at Cornell Tech.

We welcome exceptional applicants in all research areas and at all levels of seniority. We are particularly interested in applicants from areas broadly relevant to the current research trajectories and priorities at the Cornell Tech campus while addressing grant challenges in transportation, urban infrastructure, energy, information security, and healthcare. Specific research areas of emphasis include; robotics, cyberphysical systems, computer systems, computer architecture, VLSI, Internet of things, communication, storage, security/privacy, mobile sensing, and large-scale data processing, including machine learning.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. In keeping with the mission of Cornell Tech, applicants must also have a strong interest in activities that reach beyond academia for external engagement and impact, in areas that may include technology commercialization and entrepreneurship, or activities with non-profit organizations, government and policy issues, international programs, or pre-college (K-12) education. Applicants for senior positions should have a demonstrated track record of such external engagement.

We will begin reviewing and interviewing candidates immediately and continue until positions are filled. Applications received by December 15, 2021 will be given full consideration. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae (CV), brief statements describing research, teaching, and external engagement, a statement of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and arrange to have at least three reference letters submitted. In the cover letter, CV, or research statement, applicants should identify a small set of their most significant pieces of work. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, K-12 education, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct commercial and societal impact of our research. Accordingly, within a clearly identified subsection of the Research Statement, the candidate should address prior accomplishments and future plans related to this kind of direct commercial and/or societal impact of their research.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations. Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students, and staff impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose, and contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery, and engagement.

* Cornell Tech is a graduate campus of Cornell University located on Roosevelt Island in New York City. It includes the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute, a joint academic venture between Cornell and the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. Cornell Tech's academic environment encourages tight integration across disciplines in technology, business, law, and design, couples fundamental research with practice, and supports societal and commercial ventures alongside research and education. In addition to world-class academic work, a distinguishing characteristic of our research is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct societal and commercial impact of our research. Hubs in Health Tech, Urban Tech, and Public Interest Tech exemplify this approach, bringing together researchers, practitioners and communities to collaborate.

** The Jacobs Institute is a cornerstone of Cornell Tech, representing the collaboration between the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and Cornell University. Jacobs faculty members are fully part of and totally integrated with the faculty at Cornell Tech. Faculty hired in this position will be academically appointed within the Technion, at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level, and permanently located at Cornell Tech in New York City. While the tenure home of the position is the Technion, employment and benefits are delivered through Cornell University. Successful applicants will also have a visiting position and will be eligible for graduate field membership at Cornell and, because of the strong partnership between Cornell and Technion, will have many rights and privileges of Cornell faculty members, including (with graduate field membership) the ability to supervise Cornell Ph.D. students.

The Jacobs Institute shares with Cornell Tech the mission of developing leaders and technologies for the digital age, with a goal of revolutionizing academia's approach to entrepreneurship and interaction with industry. Our research, therefore, focuses on the broad applied area of computing and information sciences. The Institute seeks candidates with demonstrated trans-disciplinary interests and a track record of translating research results into real-world impact, especially in sectors of substantial importance to New York City. Jacobs faculty members push the envelope of academia, combining world-class research and teaching with innovative, out-of-the-box thinking.
