School of Computing – Lecturing Professor Position Opening
The School of Computing at the University of Utah seeks enthusiastic applicants for the position of Lecturing Professor (at all ranks) beginning in the fall semester of 2022. This lecturing faculty position is intended to be a long-term or permanent position, with possibilities for extended contracts and promotion within the University’s Career Line Faculty structure.
The School of Computing currently employs 48 tenure-track and 9 lecturing faculty who collaborate to offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs. Lecturing faculty are valued members of the collegial School of Computing faculty and have frequent opportunities for professional growth.
The qualifications of an ideal candidate include (i) a Ph.D. in computer science or a related field, (ii) a demonstrated proficiency in teaching, and (iii) an interest in curriculum development. Lecturing faculty typically teach four courses a year, are heavily involved in university governance and service, and are encouraged to continuously improve their scholastic credentials (e.g., by developing curriculum, employing innovative pedagogical methods, publication, etc.).
The School of Computing is updating and expanding the degree options for undergraduates, which provides an exciting opportunity for new lecturing faculty to make significant contributions to curriculum. In particular, candidates with expertise in web technologies (frontend/backend infrastructure, web UI/UX, virtualization, security, and cloud) are sought.
Due to the success of the Master of Software Development, the only such program in the state of Utah, the School of Computing is also seeking candidates with expertise in software engineering, systems, and data analytics to help grow this program.
The School is deeply committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion. To demonstrate this commitment, we have created the Utah Center for Inclusive Computing to broaden participation in the undergraduate majors (see ucic.cs.utah.edu). To build a more diverse and representative faculty, we strongly encourage applications from populations underrepresented in computing, as well as candidates with nontraditional backgrounds. The School is also committed to addressing lifestyle priorities and will work with candidates to develop opportunities for spouses and partners.
