The College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS) at Northeastern University invites applications for positions at the rank of Lecturer/Assistant Teaching Professor/Associate Teaching Professor/Full Teaching Professor in the Computer Science ALIGN Program at our campus in Seattle beginning in September 2017 or January 2018. The ALIGN Program offers intellectually curious students who did not study computer science as an undergraduate from all backgrounds (technical to liberal arts) the opportunity to earn a Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) and to transition to successful careers in the dynamic field of computer science. Students first take courses in a two semester sequence to give them the background necessary to move into the MS-level classes in computer science. This innovative program is in its 4th year and its graduates now have positions at top tech companies across the country. This program was designed to increase the diversity of thought and demographics in computer science.

We are seeking highly-motivated individuals committed to excellence in teaching. Full-time appointments at all ranks are renewable, career-focused non-tenure-track positions with responsibilities in teaching and service. Primary responsibilities include teaching graduate courses in the Computer Science ALIGN Program. The successful candidate will create course content and materials and collaborate with colleagues to develop new academic programs and relationships with the business community. Student advising and service to the college and university are an integral component of the position. Opportunities for research and scholarship are possible. Northeastern University is a global university recognized by our renowned co-op program and our focus on experiential learning. We are experiencing dramatic growth in enrollment and academic innovation. The College of Computer and Information Science is one of the fastest growing colleges in the university.

Qualifications

Candidates must hold a PhD in Computer and/or Information Science from an accredited institution by the start date. Teaching experience at the graduate level is strongly preferred. Rank of appointment at either the Lecturer, Assistant Teaching Professor, Associate Teaching Professor, or Full Teaching Professor level will be determined on prior teaching experience and will be discussed with candidates during the interview process. Successful candidates will have demonstrated an expert grasp of knowledge of the field and be creative in their approach to teaching in an environment of experiential education. Strong written, oral and interpersonal skills are required in order to communicate effectively with diverse and exceptional students in person and online.
