Three Teaching Positions in Computer Science

Department of Computer Science

The University of Vermont

The College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for 3 full-time non-tenure-track teaching positions in Computer Science (CS) for a Fall 2017 start date. We seek highly motivated candidates with a passion for teaching CS and an ability to develop and teach a variety of CS courses. Qualifications for these positions include an M.S. or Ph.D. in computer science or a related field and a demonstrated commitment to educating the next generation of computer scientists.  Two of the positions are for lecturers who will focus on teaching required first and second year courses for CS majors and minors, as well as service and elective courses at the lower level. The third position is for a Professor of the Practice in Software Engineering (technically hired as a senior lecturer) and requires industry experience in software engineering; the focus will be on developing and teaching upper division courses in industrial strength software engineering on a variety of platforms, ideally developing relationships with industry sponsors for capstone projects.

Prior experience teaching computer science is highly desirable, and prior experience or willingness to teach in hybrid or online formats is a plus. In addition to teaching, a modest amount of service and academic advising is also expected. The appointment period is 9-months per year, but opportunities for teaching additional summer or online courses may be available for additional compensation. UVM offers generous benefits packages, including health, dental, retirement contributions, and tuition remission.

The University of Vermont is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and actively encourages applications from women, veterans and people from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.  To that end candidates must provide a diversity impact statement as part of their cover letter, detailing how they will further the diversity of the unit through their teaching and service at the University.

Computer Science is recruiting for a total of 5 faculty positions.  Links to the advertisements for these and other open faculty positions in the College of Engineering & Mathematical Sciences are available online (http://go.uvm.edu/hireme). Existing collaborators are encouraged to apply, as are couples. In general, the University is open to discussion of how it can support dual-career couples.

The University of Vermont, established in 1791, is a comprehensive research university with a current enrollment of 12,000+ undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. The scientific and

academic environments in the Computer Science Department, the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, and throughout the UVM community are dynamic, highly collaborative, and multi-disciplinary.

The University is located in Burlington, Vermont, about 90 miles south of Montréal. Burlington is often rated as the best small city in America for quality of living, and features year-round outdoor recreation and cultural events. Greater Burlington has a population of approximately 150,000 and enjoys a panoramic setting on Lake Champlain, bordered by the Adirondack and Green Mountains.

Applicants must submit a cover letter that highlights expertise and teaching experience and describes how they will contribute to diversity and inclusion through their teaching and/or service, a current CV, and the names of three references, at least one of which can comment on teaching. All application materials must be submitted online at http://www.uvmjobs.com.  If applying for the Professor of the Practice apply to position F928PO, for the lecturer positions, position number F929PO. Evaluation of applications will begin January 2, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. Please address any questions about this position, or the application process, to cssearch@cems.uvm.edu.
