Lecturer or Assistant Professor of Computer Science

The Computer Science Department at Brandeis University invites applications for a full-time faculty position at the rank of lecturer or assistant professor (outside the tenure structure), to start in the Fall Semester of 2020.  The position, which carries the equivalent of a five-course teaching load, will have an initial appointment of up to three years and the potential for renewal.  We seek candidates who are able to teach a wide range of first- and second-year computer science courses, as well as occasional upper-level and graduate electives.  The successful candidate must be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and is expected to participate fully in the academic life of the department, including advising, participating in faculty meetings, supporting undergraduate research and other activities relevant to our teaching mission.

A master’s degree in computer science is required; a Ph.D. is preferred.  Candidates should be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching computer science at the university level.  Salary is commensurate with qualifications.

 The Computer Science department has 13 tenure-line and 5 contract faculty members with diverse research and teaching interests.  Besides offering bachelors, masters, and Ph.D. degrees in CS, the department houses the Linguistics program and offers a vibrant nationally recognized master’s program in Computational Linguistics.

 At Brandeis, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential components of academic excellence. Brandeis University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer that is committed to creating equitable access and opportunities for applicants to all employment positions.  Because diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the core of Brandeis’ history and mission, we value and are seeking candidates with a variety of social identities, including those that have been underrepresented in higher education, who possess skills that spark innovation, and who, through their scholarly pursuits, teaching, and/or service experiences, bring expertise in building, engaging and sustaining a pluralistic, interconnected, and just campus community.

Applicants must submit a CV, teaching statement, and research statement (or a statement describing other significant professional activities beyond classroom instruction) to AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15974. Candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of reference to be submitted through the AJO website.  First consideration will be given to applications received by 31 March 2020.  Questions about the position should be directed to compsci@brandeis.edu.
