Carnegie Mellon University's Language Technologies Institute (LTI) seeks applicants for the Teaching track starting in the Fall 2023 semester. Teaching-track applicants must have strong interests and accomplishments in teaching, with expertise in language technologies.

The Language Technologies Institute (LTI) in the School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for multiple tenure-track and teaching-track faculty positions. The LTI is dedicated to the study of human language and related information technologies, including NLP, speech, MT, computational linguistics, text mining, machine learning, and multimedia.  The LTI has some 36 faculty, about 150 PhD/MS research students, and another 150 professional MS students. It is one of seven departments within SCS, which has over 200 faculty with expertise spanning all areas of computer science. SCS is a highly collaborative and uniquely interdisciplinary environment that promotes innovation and entrepreneurship in both teaching and research.

We seek candidates internationally who have a demonstrated commitment to excellence, and who will contribute in an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. Applicants must have outstanding academic credentials and have an earned Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely-related field.

This position includes teaching lecture style courses, project courses, and seminars. Candidates with industrial experience in language technologies and experience managing and conducting applied research with current technologies are encouraged to apply.

The teaching track is a career-oriented, renewable appointment with an initial appointment of three years. Typically initial appointments are at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor, with the possibility of promotion to the ranks of Associate Teaching Professor and Teaching Professor. Teaching track positions are not tenured, but do provide substantial opportunities for professional growth and long-term contributions to education at Carnegie Mellon University.
