In addition, we are interested in recruiting for the Paul Chrisman Iribe Chaired Professorship. This chaired position has been established to promote advances in virtual reality and related disciplines. The Paul Chrisman Iribe Chair is a tenured faculty position at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level that was established in conjunction with the new Brendan Iribe Center for Computer Science and Innovation at the University of Maryland. Applicants are expected to be recognized scholars in Computer Science with a demonstrated record of external funding supporting the candidate's research program.

We are committed to building a diverse faculty preeminent in our missions of research, teaching, and engagement in the community.  Candidates who have experience working with a diverse range of faculty, staff, and students and who can contribute to a climate of inclusivity are encouraged to identify their experiences in this area.  The Department of Computer Science especially encourages applications from women, underrepresented minorities and those who can contribute to a climate of inclusivity.
