The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Washington State University (WSU) invites applications for a full-time clinical teaching faculty position in Computer Science. The position will be based at WSU main campus in Pullman, WA. Candidates with a Master’s or PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline are sought. Preference will be given to candidates with prior teaching experience, curriculum development (classroom, online), leadership potential, industry experience/potential to foster industry partnerships, exceptional communication and interpersonal skills, and a commitment to diversifying the student body. The job duties of successful candidates include curriculum development; advising students; teaching undergraduate courses in computer science; interfacing with industry; participating in continuous teaching assessment activities; effectively communicating and interacting with students; supporting student recruitment activities; and collaborating with others within the School, the University, or other organizations.

The new faculty hired for this position will join approximately 50 existing faculty members in the School of EECS, which has experienced rapid growth in enrollment over the past four years. As of the fall of 2018, around 1000 undergraduate students are enrolled in its B.S., and B.A programs, and 275 graduate students are enrolled in its M.S., and Ph.D. programs in computer science, electrical engineering, and computer engineering. EECS expects continued increase in enrollments and anticipates multiple faculty hires over the next two years.
