The Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago is seeking a full-time teaching faculty member beginning fall 2016. This is a long-term, career-oriented position with the possibility of advancement through the university’s Clinical track. The department is committed to effective teaching, and candidates would be working alongside seven full-time teaching faculty with over 100 years of combined teaching experience and 11 awards for excellence in teaching. The department is looking for candidates dedicated to teaching; candidates must have evidence of effective teaching, or present a convincing case of future dedication and success in the art of teaching. Content areas of interest include introductory programming/data structures, theory/algorithms, computer systems, databases, software design, and web development. The teaching load is three undergraduate courses per semester, with a possibility of teaching at the graduate level if desired.

The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is ranked in the top-5 best US universities under 50 years old (Times Higher Education), and one of the top-10 most diverse universities in the US (US News and World Report). UIC’s hometown of Chicago epitomizes the modern, livable, vibrant city. Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, Chicago offers an outstanding array of cultural and culinary experiences. As the birthplace of the modern skyscraper, Chicago boasts one of the world’s tallest and densest skylines, combined with an 8100-acre park system and extensive public transit and biking networks. Its airport is the second busiest in the world, with frequent non-stop flights to most major cities. Yet the cost of living is surprisingly low, whether in a high-rise downtown or a house on a tree-lined street in one of the nation’s finest school districts.

Minimum qualifications include a Master’s degree or higher in Computer Science or a related field, and either (a) demonstrated evidence of effective teaching, or (b) convincing argument of future dedication and success in the art of teaching. Applications are submitted online at https://jobs.uic.edu/. In the online application, please include your curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of at least three references, a statement providing evidence of effective teaching, and a separate statement describing your past experience in activities that promote diversity and inclusion (or plans to make future contributions). Applicants needing additional information may contact Professor Joe Hummel, Search Committee Chair, jhummel2@uic.edu.
