The CSE Department seeks applications for a Teaching Professor with security of employment (tenure) at the Associate or Full level. The teaching faculty series at UC San Diego (whose official title is Lecturer with (Potential) Security of Employment) carries equivalent rights and responsibilities as the more traditional UC San Diego research-focused faculty series. Teaching Professors are expected to place a stronger emphasis on teaching and scholarly activity related to education than on traditional disciplinary research activities.
We seek candidates who have demonstrated that they are strong computer science and engineering educators. Candidates will be expected to teach core undergraduate courses and may also teach advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. Successful candidates will have led scholarly activities outside the classroom that have resulted in significant advancements in computer science and engineering education. Successful candidates must show commitment to educating a broad and diverse group of students and in working to increase the participation and success of students from groups underrepresented in computer science, including but not limited to: African Americans, Latino/as, American Indians, Native Hawaiians, Native Alaskans, women, persons with disabilities, and first-generation college students. All candidates are asked to describe explicitly the nature of their commitment to and experience with underrepresented groups.
Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. degree in computer science (including computer science education) or a related area.
CSE is a highly collaborative department, home to over 50 faculty including four teaching faculty. With over 2000 undergraduate CS majors, UC San Diego is deeply committed to undergraduate education and is a leader in undergraduate computer science education at a large scale.
