Boston University’s Metropolitan College seeks two dynamic and creative faculty members with expertise in data analytics or software development to join its nationally recognized Department of Computer Science (http://www.bu.edu/csmet/) at the rank of Assistant Professor starting July or September 1, 2022.

The Department is a leader in providing rigorous and industry-relevant education in areas such as information security, computer networks, computer information systems, financial informatics, digital forensics, and health informatics. Courses are offered in flexible face-to-face, blended and online formats. It offers the acclaimed Boston University online Masters in Computer Information Systems program, ranked as the 8th best online IT program by US News & World Report 2021. The department believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that end, we are especially eager to have colleagues who support our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, and diverse join our ranks.

Qualifications: The successful candidates must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Computer Science or a related field, and have a demonstrated successful teaching and research record. We welcome applications from candidates with a terminal degree who have extensive professional and industry experience as well as an interest in teaching and applied research.

Responsibilities: Faculty duties include teaching up to six courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels per academic year, including blended and online courses, conducting active research, participating in course and curriculum development, and mentoring part-time faculty and students, as well as providing service to the department, college and the university. These are both full-time, non-tenure track appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor, each with a 2-5 year renewable contract.

The faculty positions offer significant opportunity for interdisciplinary and collaborative scholarly work, including research and curriculum development within Metropolitan College and Boston University, as well as the greater Boston area.

Salary: Commensurate with experience.

DO NOT APPLY THROUGH THE BOSTON UNIVERSITY HR WEBSITE.

Organization

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
