The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) invites applications for 3 full-time teaching faculty positions in its Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department (http://www.cse.uta.edu). Teaching positions are full-time, Non-Tenure Track positions, and can be at the levels of lecturer/senior lecturer, or assistant/associate/full professor of instruction. These openings are for positions that start in the Fall 2020 semester. The successful candidates are expected to have strong teaching and communication skills, and should have the technical capabilities and knowledge to teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses in one or more specialization areas of computer science, computer engineering, or software engineering. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Candidates in all areas will be considered, but we are particularly interested in candidates who can teach computer engineering courses such as circuits, electronics, embedded systems, and signal processing, as well as those who can teach fundamental computer science classes such as discrete structures, theory of computation and algorithms. We will accept applications until all positions are filled, but priority will be given to candidates who apply before June 30, 2020.

Qualifications

For assistant/associate/full professor of instruction, candidates must have earned (by the start date) a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related area. For lecturer/senior lecturer positions, a Ph.D. degree is preferred, but MS degree in computer-related area and work experience will also be considered. All candidates must show a strong commitment to teaching excellence and should share the university’s core values of fostering an open and inclusive environment that promotes diversity and participation of groups that are currently underrepresented in the computing and engineering fields.
