Clinical Assistant Professor, Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences

Tracking Code2743 Job Description

The Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences invites applications for a non-tenure-track Clinical Assistant Professor to serve as its Director of Undergraduate Studies beginning as soon as July 1, 2022. Qualifications required of all applicants include extensive experience commensurate with a PhD degree or equivalent in any of the disciplines that span computing and data sciences and a strong commitment to teaching and to curricular development that is informed by real-world experience in an academic or industrial setting.

Founded in 2019, the Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences is a university-wide, degree-granting academic unit focused on core and applied areas of computing, computational, and data-driven inquiry. Housed in an iconic 19-story building with a convention-bending design to be completed in 2022, CDS complements traditional cognate academic disciplines by laying the foundation for innovation-driven, civic-minded computing to maximize the real-world impact of research, curricular, and co-curricular programs that are thematically aligned with strategic goals of the university. In the Fall of 2021, CDS launched its signature undergraduate BS degree program in Data Science. Additional information about the Faculty is available at https://www.bu.edu/cds.

The successful candidate will be appointed as a clinical faculty member in CDS at the rank of assistant professor, carrying a teaching load of three introductory or intermediate undergraduate courses per year, covering foundational and core data science subjects. As Director of Undergraduate Studies, the successful candidate will play a key role in the academic advising, mentorship, and career counseling of students, and in the development of the instructional capacity supporting CDS’s undergraduate programs. Initial appointment will be for a renewable three-year term with future longer-term appointments expected.

DO NOT APPLY THROUGH THE BOSTON UNIVERSITY HR WEBSITE.

Applications for this position are now accepted at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19904. Application materials include current curriculum vitae, a statement summarizing teaching and pedagogical innovation interests, and at least three letters of references. Applications are welcome from recent PhD graduates, postdocs, lecturers, or practitioners who are interested in an academic career focusing on teaching and mentorship of undergraduate students. Particular attention will be given to candidates with a record of pedagogical innovation in topics that are relevant to data science, most notably mathematical and algorithmic foundation, software and data engineering, data mining, machine learning, and AI. Candidates from underrepresented groups and those who have a track record of broadening participation in computing and data science are encouraged to apply.

Boston University expects excellence in teaching and in research and is committed to building a diverse community, which is essential to its mission as expressed at https://www.bu.edu/info/about/diversity. BU is an AAU institution with a rich tradition of inclusion and social justice. We are proud of our record, including being the first American university to award a PhD to a woman and the university from which Martin Luther King Jr. received his PhD. CDS is dedicated to increasing participation of all talented students, especially women and other underrepresented groups in computing.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.

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.
