University of Oklahoma, Gallogly College of Engineering

The Gallogly College of Engineering is rapidly growing with a strategic focus on increasing the number of engineering graduates and increasing our research portfolio. Our plan for student body growth is built around new programs that support and educate our student body in meaningful ways, including new and innovative online degree programs that address computing workforce advanced education. We seek applications for a full-time, renewable-term assistant or associate professor for our newly launched online M.S. Program in Applied Computing to support this mission. This program is specially tailored for individuals who do not have a background in computing but would greatly benefit from completing it. It offers opportunities to explore various computing areas and advance their career prospects in this field. This position will involve creating and teaching online courses that meet program requirements, such as programming principles, mathematics for computer science, data structures and algorithms, software engineering, and applied database systems. There will be an opportunity to create elective courses on relevant topics like security, AI/ML, and cloud computing. The successful candidate will not be eligible for tenure but will otherwise have full faculty rights and privileges. The rank may be assistant or associate and will be commensurate with experience. This position offers the flexibility of remote work; however, the role necessitates occasional travel to the main campus in Norman, Oklahoma, and other designated locations as desired. More details of this position can be found at https://apply.interfolio.com/128002.

We are seeking candidates with an education- and professional practice-focused background in all areas of computing with the ability to teach multiple computing courses, including those listed previously. We seek candidates who support inclusive excellence in all aspects of faculty responsibility, including within the classroom, the academic community, and their professional commitments. Candidates should discuss in their cover letter how they will support the college’s commitment to student success and educational excellence. Candidates for the position must possess a doctoral degree in a relevant computing discipline.
