Lecturer Opening

The Department of Computer Science at Stanford University invites applications for a Lecturer position.  The appointment will be made at the Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level, depending upon the candidate’s seniority and experience.  An appointment as a Lecturer is a full-time, non-tenure line position that is renewable in subsequent years and, depending on performance, may lead to promotion to Senior Lecturer.  An appointment as a Senior Lecturer is a full-time position with an initial term appointment (up to 5 years) and would then be considered for a continuing appointment, which provides security of appointment without requiring further formal reappointment.

The candidate’s primary responsibility is the teaching of undergraduate courses (typically four courses during the three quarters of the regular academic year, or a 1-1-2 schedule).  Additionally, candidates will also provide undergraduate student advising.  Applicants should have a strong commitment to and demonstrated aptitude for excellent teaching.  All candidates must hold a Master’s degree or higher in computer science or a closely related discipline. Further information about the Computer Science Department at Stanford can be found at: http://cs.stanford.edu/.

Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, brief teaching statement (3 pages total, including references), material relevant to evaluating the applicant’s teaching abilities, and the names of at least three references.  Candidates are requested to ask references to send their letters directly to the search committee.  Applications and reference letters should be sent to:  Lecturer Search Committee Chair, c/o Laura Kenny-Carlson, via electronic mail to: search@cs.stanford.edu.

The review of applications will begin on December 5, 2022, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit complete applications by that date for full consideration; however, applications will continue to be accepted until January 31, 2023.
