Abstract

This article reports the results of several surveys, which examine current conditions for hiring computing (CS, CIS) faculty. Specifically, the article takes a broad look at some statistics in the most recent Taulbee Survey [1, 2] and also reports on three surveys, conducted by the authors, utilizing the mailing list. Each of these instruments gives only a limited picture, but their results seem consistent and point to a remarkable under supply of candidates. While people may speculate about the short-term consequences of this shortage, all results point to a long-term need to strongly encourage students to enter academia careers in computer science.
