The Department of Computer Science in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) invites applications for a faculty position as Professor of Teaching / Lecturer with Security of Employment beginning July 1, 2019. The Department is especially interested in those who can teach AI/ML, theory and databases classes, in addition to the usual introductory CS classes. The Professor of Teaching/ Lecturer with Security of Employment series requires, in addition to excellent teaching and service, that the candidate make outstanding and recognized contributions to the development of his or her specific discipline and/or of pedagogy. This position parallels the tenure-track faculty series. The search is open-rank, inviting applicants at the Assistant (potential security of employment; analogous to pre-tenure) or Associate/Full (security of employment; analogous to tenure) ranks. This is a full-time faculty position designed for individuals who wish to focus their careers on teaching, professional activities, and University and public service. Professors of Teaching are members of the University of California Academic Senate and have all the usual benefits of Senate membership.

The Computer Science Department's curricula, faculty and research focus on an array of topics, including computer architecture, system software, networking and distributed computing, data and information systems, artificial intelligence, and computer graphics, while also exploring interdisciplinary topics such as biomedical informatics, data mining, security and privacy, and ubiquitous computing. At UCI, ICS brings together three unique departments (Computer Science, Informatics, and Statistics), thus strategically positioning itself to meet the technical and social challenges of computing and information systems in the coming decades. The U.S. News and World Report 2018 Best Global Universities ranking identifies UCI as a top 75 university in computer science and one of the top 30 universities for computer science in the United States. ICS is one of only five computing-focused schools among the Association of American Universities (AAU) members. Our 90+ faculty members include 2 NAE Members, 14 ACM Fellows, 9 IEEE Fellows, 9 AAAS Fellows and many other national award winners.

For eight consecutive years the University of California, Irvine has been named a top 10 “Coolest School” by Sierra magazine for our innovative sustainable practices. UCI is also ranked as a top ten public university by U.S. News and World Report, and has been identified by the New York Times as No. 1 among U.S. universities that do the most for low-income students. UCI is located in Orange County, 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 45 miles south of Los Angeles. Irvine is one of the safest communities in the U.S. and offers a very pleasant year-round climate, numerous recreational and cultural opportunities, and one of the highest-ranked public school systems in the nation.
