As the Department of Computer Science has grown in recent years, so too has the community of UChicago CS alumni, expanding into new destinations in academia and industry. After completing their PhD or postdoctoral work at UChicago, our alums have gone on to faculty and postdoctoral positions at universities around the United States, have founded innovative new startups, and joined global tech giants on their most ambitious research teams. We spoke to several recent departures about their current work, their experience in Hyde Park, and their advice for the next generations of UChicago computer scientists.
Faculty and Postdocs
At universities such as UC Berkeley, Michigan, and Carnegie Mellon, UChicago CS alums have leapt into academia with prestigious faculty and postdoc positions. These early-career scientists are putting their UChicago CS experience to work on research and teaching in areas such as data science, programming language design, machine learning, and databases.
