INTRODUCTION

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Connecticut invites applications for two non-tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor-in-Residence at the Stamford campus. The successful candidates will primarily contribute to the Department’s teaching program.

These positions are for the new and dynamic program in computer science on the Stamford campus. They are specifically geared to Stamford and Fairfield county. This area has one of the world’s highest standards of living as well as a strong industrial base. There are opportunities for curricular design and engagement with regional industry.

Our initial focus area is Big Data Analytics.

The successful candidates will share a deep commitment to effective instruction at the undergraduate levels, the development of innovative courses, and mentoring of students in research, outreach, and professional development. The successful candidates will also be expected to broaden participation among members of under-represented groups; demonstrate through their teaching, possible research, and/or public engagement the richness of diversity in the learning experience; integrate multicultural experiences into instructional methods and research tools, and provide leadership in developing pedagogical techniques designed to meet the needs of diverse learning styles and intellectual interests.
