Department: Department of Computer Science

Location: Charlottesville

Posting Date: 10-10-2017

Posting Summary:
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia seeks applications for multiple non-tenure-track teaching faculty positions to begin in August 2018. Candidates can apply for these long-term positions at one of three professorial ranks or at one of three lecturer ranks. We seek applicants who share our interest and enthusiasm for excellence in computing science education.

The department is committed to creating and benefiting from an environment where a diversity of capable, inspired individuals interact and collaborate to learn and advance knowledge without barriers.

Candidates for a General Faculty position at the rank of Assistant, Associate or full Professor must have a PhD or equivalent experience in computer science or a related discipline. They must have an interest in and ability to teach a broad set of courses in our undergraduate curriculum. Course load will be two to three sections per semester consisting of a mix of upper- and lower-division courses. Graduate-level teaching will possibly be included. Faculty in professorial positions will have service responsibilities, and scholarship in computing or in CS education is expected for promotion. The department strongly values scholarship activities by General Faculty that have potential to advance computing education.

Candidates for a General Faculty position at the Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Distinguished Lecturer rank must have a Master's degree or equivalent experience in computer science or a related discipline.

Lecturers may have fewer expectations for service activity, and will not be required to be engaged in scholarship.

These positions will have renewable three-year contracts. University policies insure that these positions benefit from opportunities for professional development. General Faculty receive departmental support for their teaching and scholarship activities.
