CIS Practice Assistant Professor 2022

Location:
Philadelphia, PA
Open Date:
Aug 23, 2021
Description:

The University of Pennsylvania's Department of Computer & Information Science is pleased to welcome applications for teaching faculty under the Practice Professor track.  It is a very exciting time to be engaged in computer science education at Penn, as we are experiencing incredible growth and interest in CS courses at all levels, are developing new on-campus and online learning programs, and are rapidly growing the size of our faculty.

We are seeking dedicated, accomplished, full-time faculty to teach introductory-sequence courses, undergraduate electives, and Master’s-level courses in data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, software engineering, cybersecurity, software systems, and other areas, starting in July 2022.

As part of our revamped teaching-track career path, our Practice Assistant Professor position seeks teaching-focused faculty members, who have a track record of research in engineering education and developing and publishing on innovative pedagogical techniques. Applicants who desire to pursue this track but do not yet have an extensive publication history are encouraged to apply also to our posting for a Lecturer position.

We seek individuals who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. Members of our teaching faculty participate in departmental and school-level efforts to promote diversity, equity and inclusion, and to work closely with students to identify and address diversity challenges. As such, we request a discussion of candidates’ experiences in establishing and maintaining supportive, inclusive environments for diverse student communities, and what plans they have for being involved in diversity efforts at Penn.


Qualifications:

PhD in Computer Science or relevant discipline.


Application Instructions:

To ensure full consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply by November 30th, 2021. However, applications will be accepted until positions are filled. Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, statement on inclusion and diversity, and names of 3 references. Other supporting documents are optional. Applications must be submitted online through Interfolio.

Organization

Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania! Penn is the largest private employer in Philadelphia and is a world-renowned leader in education, research, and innovation.  

Across our 12 highly-regarded schools, more than 25,000 students, and more than 4,000 faculty members, we become one university: a wide-ranging, ever-changing community that draws its strength from a multitude of races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, historical traditions, ages, religions, disabilities, veteran status, interests, perspectives, and socioeconomic backgrounds. 

Penn carries on the principles and spirit of its founder, Benjamin Franklin: entrepreneurship, innovation, invention, outreach, and a pragmatic love of knowledge. Franklin's practical outlook has remained a driving force in the university's development. To learn more, visit About Penn

Vision

 

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 

 

Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact. 

 

Learn about the signature initiatives of the Penn Compact 2022:  

 

Diversity 

 

Understanding and appreciating diversity is one of Penn's most important priorities and is fundamental to success in today's world. 

 

Penn adheres to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
