Arizona State University
School of Computing, Informatics, and Decisions Systems Engineering

The School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE) in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) seeks applicants for a full-time lecturer position beginning January 2022.  CIDSE has locations on the Tempe and Polytechnic Campuses so some travel between locations should be expected.  However, most teaching assignments are likely to be courses in CIDSE’s online Masters degree program.   This is a non-tenure track appointment with a fixed term academic year contract. Appointments will be made at the rank of Principal Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Lecturer commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments. Opportunities exist to augment the academic year salary by assisting with summer instruction.

The successful candidate for this position will have a demonstrated record of excellence in teaching that incorporates active learning.   Given the teaching will be at the master’s degree level, the successful candidate will have advanced knowledge in specialized topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, Programming Languages, Cybersecurity, and Software Engineering.  Lecturers also contribute to the service mission of CIDSE programs through student outreach activities, service on committees, and industry engagement activities.  Faculty are also expected to remain engaged through professional development and external services.

A minimum of a M.S. in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Computer Engineering or a related discipline is required. Preference will be given to those candidates with a PhD or near completion PhD by the time of appointment with proven teaching skills in an online format.  A commitment to work collaboratively with a diverse student population is also desirable.

Application deadline is October 15, 2021.

Applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis for a reserve pool.  Applications in the reserve pool may then be reviewed in the order in which they were received until the position is filled.
