CIS Practice Assistant Professor 2023
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Open Date: Oct 08, 2022
The University of Pennsylvania's Department of Computer & Information Science is pleased to welcome applications for teaching faculty under the Practice Professor track. It is a very exciting time to be engaged in computer science education at Penn: we are experiencing incredible growth and interest in CS courses at all levels, are developing new on-campus and online learning programs, and are rapidly growing the size of our faculty (23 hires in the last 5 years).
We are seeking dedicated, accomplished, full-time faculty to teach introductory-sequence courses, undergraduate electives, and Master's-level courses in software engineering, data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, software systems, and other areas, starting in July 2023.
As part of our revamped teaching-track career path, our Practice Assistant Professor position seeks teaching-focused faculty members, who have a track record of research in engineering education and developing and publishing on innovative pedagogical techniques. Applicants who desire to pursue this track but do not yet have an extensive publication history are encouraged to apply also to our posting for a Lecturer position.
We seek individuals who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. Members of our teaching faculty participate in departmental and school-level efforts to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and to work closely with students to identify and address diversity challenges. As such, we request a discussion of candidates' experiences in establishing and maintaining supportive, inclusive environments for diverse student communities, and what plans they have for being involved in diversity efforts at Penn.
PhD in Computer Science or relevant discipline.
To ensure full consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply by November 15th, 2022. However, applications will be accepted until positions are filled. Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, statement on inclusion and diversity, and three letters of reference. Other supporting documents are optional.
