Assistant Teaching Professor

We are no longer accepting applications for this recruitment


The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the University of California, Riverside invites applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor position beginning in January 2018. At UCR, teaching professors are responsible mainly for undergraduate instruction and curriculum development. Successful candidates will need to exhibit dedication to teaching and appropriate pedagogical knowledge and skills. Priority will be given to candidates with expertise and prior experience in teaching courses on data structures, software engineering, discrete mathematics, and algorithms, but highly qualified candidates with background in other areas will also be given consideration. Besides teaching, teaching professors are also expected to be actively engaged in development of undergraduate curricula, pedagogical innovation, TA training, program accreditation, student advising, and scholarly activity in the area of computer science education.

An assistant teaching professor appointment is similar to a regular tenure-track assistant professor appointment and follows a parallel track, including regular, rigorous performance reviews and a tenure process that, if successful, leads to a tenured appointment.

A Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field is required at the time of employment. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Full consideration will be given to applications received by October 30, 2017. The search will continue until the position is filled.
