Yes, We Have Postdocs This Year

The Harvard Theory of Computation group has postdocs.  This year, besides our usual general call for postdocs, we are also inaugurating the Michael O. Rabin Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Computer ScienceThis new fellowship has its own independent funding, so that researchers can do whatever they want, working with whomever they want, once they get here. 

Oh, there's also our postdocs at Harvard's Center for Research on Computation and Society, and Harvard's Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications also. 

Please apply!

Yes, We're Hiring This Year

Harvard's CS search ad is apparently up and out.  We're eagerly awaiting applications....

The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
seeks applicants for a position at the tenure-track level in Computer
Science, with an expected start date of July 1, 2016.

This is a broad faculty search and we welcome applicants in all areas
of computer science, including applicants whose research and interests
connect to such areas as engineering, medicine, and the social
sciences. We are particularly interested in candidates working in the
broad areas of machine learning, human-computer interaction,
programming languages, and systems (including networking,
architecture, and databases).

The Computer Science program at Harvard University is experiencing a
period of strong growth and expansion following an extraordinary gift
in support of new faculty from alumnus and former Microsoft CEO Steve
Ballmer, ‘77, and the largest gift in the University’s history,
received from John A. Paulson, M.B.A. ’80, in support of SEAS.

Computer Science at Harvard benefits from outstanding undergraduate
and graduate students, world-leading faculty, an excellent location,
significant industrial collaboration, and substantial support from the
Harvard Paulson School. Information about Harvard’s current faculty,
research, and educational programs in computer science is available at The associated Institute
for Applied Computational Science (
fosters connections among computer science, applied math, data
science, and various domain sciences at Harvard through its graduate
programs and events.

Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree by the
expected start date. In addition, we seek candidates who have a strong
research record and a commitment to undergraduate teaching and
graduate training.

Required application documents include a cover letter, cv, a statement
of research interests, a teaching statement, and up to three
representative papers. Candidates are also required to submit the
names and contact information for at least three and up to five
references, and the application is complete only when three letters
have been submitted. We encourage candidates to apply by December 15,
2015, but will continue to review applications until the position is
filled. Applicants will apply on-line at

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will
receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color,
religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin,
disability status, protected veteran status, or any other
characteristic protected by law.
