In joining our department, you won't be alone! We have an excellent and collegial group of faculty to welcome you. For more details, explore the faculty profiles.
Furthermore, since computer science is an enabler for advancement in so many areas, our computer science faculty have opportunities to find collaborations within the broader University. With our involvement in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology program, we interact most closely with the Departments of Biology, Mathematics & Statistics, and Chemistry, and the School of Medicine. Computer Science faculty and students also have interactions with SLU's College of Engineering, School of Business, Law School, College for Public Health and Social Justice, Center for Digital Humanities, and the many other departments found at SLU.
St. Louis Region
The Greater St. Louis Region is an excellent place to live, and our Human Resources department is excited to provide their own "Relocation Guide" with a variety of information about the area, and SLU's support for new employees.
Since they've already done that, we'll offer a more computing-focussed introduction to our city. St. Louis has an outstanding and ever-growing tech industry, as home to world headquarters for many large corporations, and home to the IT headquarters for many additional companies. Some big names in terms of CS employment in the area currently include (alphabetically): Anheuser-Busch/InBev, Boeing, Citi Cards, Enterprise, KPMG, MasterCard, Microsoft, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, Riot Games, Scottrade, and World Wide Technology. Some big names in the realm of bioinformatics, bioscience and healthcare include: Bayer/Monsanto, Centene, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, Express Scripts, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Missouri Botanical Gardens, Pfizer, Sigma-Aldrich and SSM Health.
But it's not just the big corporations that love the city. St. Louis has a vibrant entreprenuer community including several prominent incubators such as the CORTEX Innovation Community, which is literally a few blocks from the west end of our campus, and the T-Rex Incubator, found just over 2 miles to our East, in downtown St. Louis. The BioSTL Coalition, which includes Saint Louis University among its members, focuses on bioscience industries in the region.
