Assistant professors are untenured faculty who are on the tenure track. The probationary period or tenure clock normally lasts five or six years for assistant professors recently graduated from doctorate programs, though recently hired professors with prior teaching or professional experience may have years in other positions credited as part of their probationary period. During probation, most assistant professors undergo a third-year or pre-tenure review, during which the university evaluates whether they have demonstrated adequate progress toward tenure to be awarded a second three-year pre-tenure contract or their contract will not be renewed.

The University of Virginia’s College at Wise, a division of the University of Virginia, is a nationally ranked four-year public liberal arts college located in the scenic mountains of southwestern Virginia and invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Software Engineering in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.

Preference will be given to candidates with relevant industry experience.

Title, rank, salary, and tenure status are commensurate with credentials and experience.
