The Department of Computer Science at the University of Arizona is accepting applications from dedicated educators for Lecturer-track faculty positions at all ranks. Teaching faculty are critical to the department’s mission and are appointed with the expectation of long-term employment.

Summer teaching is available for interested faculty for additional compensation.
Lecturers at all ranks teach both core and elective undergraduate courses and actively participate in departmental faculty meetings, decision-making, planning, and service. The Lecturer teaching track is non-tenure-eligible but offers a well-defined promotion path. Applicants must have either an M.S. or a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely-related discipline and will be considered for appointment at the Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, or Principal Lecturer ranks based on experience and evidence of teaching quality and effectiveness.
This career-track appointment is not eligible for tenure.

The Department has a long history of excellent undergraduate and graduate instruction and research accomplishment with a diverse and enthusiastic student body. The Department supports the UA’s diversity and inclusiveness strategic initiatives designed to create an inclusive environment for all faculty, staff, and students. All faculty are expected to support diversity and inclusiveness efforts in the department and college.
The university is in Tucson, the heart of a metropolitan area of over a million people surrounded by five mountain ranges. Tucson boasts a warm desert climate, 350 sunny days per year, and a wide variety of outdoor activities.
