What are PUIs and why list them? - 2021/22 Hiring Cycle

If you would like to add a listing to this page, please visit the Add Listing page

In 2017, I wrote an article about finding academic happiness with primarily-undergraduate institutions. I continue to receive emails with the same question: how do I find these jobs? This listing of ads is meant to help navigate that muddy water. To see last year’s list, see the 20/21 version of this page.

This document does not contain many CS academic positions. It’s intended for those who want to invest in teaching/mentorship with undergraduate students while still staying active in their scholarship. The positions on this page should be…

  • accessible to those with a Ph.D. in CS
  • Universities that identify as primarily-undergraduate colleges and universities.
  • Institutions that highly value teaching, but also secure time and financial resources for faculty to remain engaged with research. This typically means a reduced teaching load (often 3/2 or 2/2) with professional support funds.

If you are considering entering the job market, I’d encourage you to visit the Resources pages for some insight into the ways in which PUIs might differ in their interviewing processes and values.


Who is hiring in CS so far (2021/22)

Deadlines are interpreted differently between institutions. See full description for context

Permanent (Tenure-Track) Positions

While I provide rough guidelines on teaching/scholarship balance, the schools here still cover a range of resources / teaching loads. Always ask questions.

Fixed-Term Positions

You should know that this category includes a wide diversity of positions in terms of resources, length, and university status. And while they are at institutions in which the tenure-track faculty have research resources, it’s possible that these positions do not carry the same benefits. Ask lots of questions!


This list contains all positions in alphabetical order. Entries with [P] are permanent positions. Entries with [FT] are fixed-term positions
