The Department of Computer Science in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a full-time position as Senior Instructor. This position will support the Department of Computer Science and fulfillment of the department's educational mission through teaching Computer Science courses and curriculum coordination on the CU-Boulder campus, insuring the program effectively delivers the curriculum developed by the faculty and helps mentor and develop instructional faculty.

Candidates must have an earned undergraduate degree in computer science from a major university and a graduate degree in Computer Science or a closely-related field. Candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to high-quality undergraduate Computer Science education in the areas of programming languages, cybersecurity or other core areas of Computer Science. Candidates should highlight their experience in these areas.

This is a non-tenure track appointment; and it is expected that the successful candidate will be appointed as a Senior Instructor. Candidates should have appropriate leadership and mentoring experience and qualifications such as having participated in two cycles of successful ABET review (or having organized one cycle), participated in curriculum design, engaged undergraduates in teaching and governance and demonstrated a passion for serving the next generation of Computer Science students. Salary and title commensurate to experience; appointment at the level of senior instructor typically requires seven years of teaching experience, and candidates with less experience may be considered for the instructor level. This position is nominally a 9-month academic-year appointment, but the ideal candidate would be available for additional full or part time appointment during summer sessions. The position will report to the Chair of the Department of Computer Science.

Application and Review Process:

Applicants should apply through the university job application system and submit electronic files (PDF format) including a cover letter, curriculum vita or resume, a two-page statement of teaching and related entrepreneurial or research interests, and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of at least three references.
