Career-track (teaching) Faculty in Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Arizona is accepting applications from dedicated educators for non-tenure-eligible, Career -Track (i.e., teaching) faculty positions at all ranks. Teaching faculty are vital to the department’s mission and are appointed with the expectation of long-term employment. The typical teaching load is two courses in each of the Fall and Spring semesters, but factors such as class size may reduce that load. Career-track faculty at all ranks teach both core and elective undergraduate courses, based on their interests and department needs, and actively participate in departmental faculty meetings, decision-making, planning, and service. Career-Track faculty positions offer a well-defined promotion path along two tracks.

Applicants for the Professor of Practice track must have earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely-related discipline by the time of appointment. Applicants will be considered for appointment at the Assistant Professor of Practice, Associate Professor of Practice, or Full Professor of Practice ranks based on experience and evidence of teaching quality and effectiveness.

Applicants for the Lecturer track must have earned an M.S. in Computer Science or a closely-related discipline by the time of appointment. Applicants with a B.A. or B.S. along with sufficient industry experience will also be considered. Applicants will be considered for appointment at the Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, or Principal Lecturer ranks based on experience and evidence of teaching quality and effectiveness.

As of Fall 2022, the Department of Computer Science has 27 faculty members, including nine Career-Track faculty. The Department has a long history of excellent undergraduate and graduate instruction and research accomplishment with a diverse and enthusiastic student body.

The University of Arizona’s main campus is in Tucson, the heart of a metropolitan area of over a million people surrounded by five mountain ranges.
