Northwestern University has announced a substantial commitment to grow and transform Computer Science (CS) [http://www.northwestern.edu/newscenter/stories/2016/06/major-expansion-in-computer-science.html]. As part of transforming and scaling computer science education, we are looking for multiple non-tenure track teaching faculty.  We seek outstanding candidates, in all areas and at all levels, with a clear passion to make a difference in Computer Science, and who are excited by the opportunity to help build the future of CS at a great university.

We invite candidates to apply for non-tenure-track Professor of Instruction positions in Computer Science. The successful applicant will be one who is an extraordinary teacher and mentor. They will bring not only strong and deep knowledge of Computer Science, but also passion in their desire to convey that knowledge to a broad variety of Northwestern students. They will go well beyond delivering entry level service courses to create a learning environment that motivates students to enroll, to work, to learn, and to find new applications of Computer Science that shape their careers and the world beyond.  We intend to hire two or more excellent candidates for this role during this academic year. These are multi-year, renewable positions.
