Also, an updated announcement from Rutgers (with link):

Tenure-Track Position

The Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University invites applications for faculty positions at all ranks, with appointments starting in September 2011. The search focuses on theoretical and applied cryptography, although all candidates whose research deals with security will be considered.

Applicants for this position must have completed or be in the process of completing a dissertation in Computer Science or a closely related field, and should show evidence of exceptional research promise, potential for developing an externally funded research program, and commitment to quality advising and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Candidates are expected to have defended their PhD by the start of the fall semester.

Applicants should go here to apply. Required materials are a curriculum vitae, a research statement addressing both past work and future plans, a teaching statement, and three references.

Applications should be received by November 15, 2010 for full consideration.

Rutgers values academic diversity and encourages applications from individuals with a variety of experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds. Females, minorities, dual-career couples, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Rutgers is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.



  1. Is a low paying lecturer position in Bristol (what is the teaching load??) really a sign of a good market?

  2. Answering the above question: I don’t know about the Bristol position but it’s likely to be better than you think it is… “lecturer” is UK equivalent to US assistant prof; and one would expect to get automatic pay raises, especially when you get promoted.

  3. Would you like to post some Ph.D positions in your blog? haha~
