The University of California San Diego Computer Science and Engineering Department seeks applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor (formal title Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment). Teaching Professors are full members of the academic senate and are eligible for Security of Employment, analogous to tenure.

The responsibilities of Teaching Professors emphasize teaching courses and contributing to the teaching mission of the department. Teaching Professors are also expected to maintain an active program of educational and/or disciplinary scholarship, and to contribute to department service as senate faculty. The teaching load is two courses per quarter at the undergraduate and/or graduate level.

We seek candidates who have demonstrated that they are promising computer science and engineering educators, and who are interested in a teaching-focused career. Candidates who have engaged in activities or efforts to educate a broad and diverse group of students and worked to increase the participation and success of students from groups underrepresented in computer science are preferred.

Applicants must have an expectation of completing a Ph.D. in computer science and/or CS education or a related area by July 1, 2024. Applicants should have prior teaching experience as a TA, lead instructor, or other comparable experience.
