Three Teaching Positions in Computer Science
Department of Computer Science
The University of Vermont

The College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for 3 full-time non-tenure-track teaching positions in Computer Science (CS) for a Fall 2018 start date. We seek highly motivated candidates with a passion for teaching CS and an ability to develop and teach a variety of CS courses. Qualifications for these positions include an M.S. or Ph.D. in computer science or a related field and a demonstrated commitment to educating the next generation of computer scientists. Two of the positions are for lecturers who will focus on teaching required first and second year courses for CS majors and minors, as well as service and elective courses at the lower level. The third position is for a Professor of the Practice in Software Engineering (technically hired as a senior lecturer) and requires industry experience in software engineering; the focus will be on developing and teaching upper division courses in industrial strength software engineering on a variety of platforms, ideally developing relationships with industry sponsors for capstone projects.

Prior experience teaching computer science is highly desirable, and prior experience or willingness to teach in hybrid or online formats is a plus. In addition to teaching, a modest amount of service and academic advising is also expected. The appointment period is 9-months per year, but opportunities for teaching additional summer or online courses may be available for additional compensation. UVM offers generous benefits packages, including health, dental, retirement contributions, and tuition remission.

The University of Vermont is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
Applications from women, veterans, individuals with disabilities and people from diverse racial,
ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. To that end, candidates must provide a diversity impact statement as part of the application detailing how they will further the diversity of the unit through their teaching and service at the University.

Computer Science is recruiting for a total of 5 faculty positions. Links to the advertisements for these and other open faculty positions in the College of Engineering & Mathematical Sciences are available online (http://go.uvm.edu/hireme).
