The Department of Computer Science at Colorado School of Mines (Mines) is looking to hire multiple Teaching Assistant Professors (exceptional candidates may be considered at the level of Teaching Associate Professor) and Professors of Practice that have a clear passion for conveying knowledge to novice software professionals. We are looking for superb teachers who inspire students and will advance the University’s commitment to diversity.  Each successful candidate must be able to teach one or multiple core computer science courses (including, but not limited to: Introduction to CS, Software Engineering, Discrete Math, Computer Organization, Programming Languages) and preferably teach additional elective courses (including, but not limited to: Web Development, Computer Vision, AR/VR). Candidates should also plan to support departmental recruiting efforts, coordinate multi-section courses (including supervision and training of adjunct professors and teaching assistants), and participate in curriculum innovations and improvements.
