I encourage those from the ML community interested in a tenure-track position to consider the following opportunity at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.  In my experience here,  the teaching/research balance is very nice and somewhat unique to 4-year colleges.   We have a tenure-track faculty opening in CS, and the right candidate could be someone to contribute primarily to our existing CS major or to help build our brand new major in Data Science.  


The U.S. Naval Academy’s Computer Science Department invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. This position is anticipated to begin in late July 2022. A Ph.D. in Computer Science, Data Science, or closely related field is required. Applications are encouraged from all relevant topical areas.

The Naval Academy features a diverse set of students representing every part of the United States and a number of other countries, drawn together by a desire to serve in their future careers. As part of this culture, the Computer Science Department is committed to recruiting and supporting a diverse and inclusive faculty. We therefore encourage qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply for consideration.

Applicants must have a dedication to teaching at the undergraduate level and a strong research program. Note that no military background is needed as this is a civilian faculty position. 

The department offers a Computer Science major (with 150 current students), and also leads anew interdisciplinary major in Data Science. We currently have a faculty of 16. The successful applicant can expect small class sizes (typically 10-20 students), a highly collaborative and collegial department, numerous opportunities for internal and external research collaboration, competitive compensation (including 10 months salary plus support for possible internal and external sources of summer salary), and excellent federal benefits.

The department is housed in Grace Hopper Hall, a brand new, state of the art building overlooking the scenic Severn River. Our spaces provide outstanding office, laboratory, and research facilities for both students and faculty, including specialized labs for robotics and networking, seven computing labs, as well as six dedicated faculty research and collaboration spaces.

The Naval Academy is an undergraduate institution located in historic downtown Annapolis, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. Roughly half of the faculty are tenured or tenure track civilian professors with Ph.D.s who balance superb teaching with excellent research. The remaining faculty are active duty military officers with Masters or Doctoral degrees. Each year the academy graduates roughly 1000 undergraduate students with majors in the sciences, engineering, and humanities.

See https://www.usna.edu/HRO/jobinfo/Tenure-track-CompSci-AY22.php for more specifics
about the position and details on how to apply. U.S. Citizenship is required.

Initial review of applications will begin on November 1, 2021 and then continue until the
position is filled.
