Applications received after this date will be reviewed by the search committee if the position has not yet been filled.

The CSE Department seeks applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor with potential security of employment (“similar to tenure-track”). The teaching faculty series at UC San Diego (whose official title is “Lecturer with (Potential) Security of Employment”) carries equivalent rights and responsibilities to the more traditional UC San Diego research-focused faculty series. Teaching Professors are expected to place a stronger emphasis on teaching and scholarly activity related to education than on traditional disciplinary research activities.


We seek candidates who have demonstrated that they are strong computer science and engineering educators. Candidates will be expected to teach core undergraduate courses and may also teach advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. The normal teaching load for Teaching Professors is two courses per quarter. Candidates should also be engaged in, or have the potential to engage in, scholarly activity outside the classroom that has resulted or will likely result in advances in computer science and engineering education. Successful candidates must show commitment to educating a broad and diverse group of students and in working to increase the participation and success of students from groups underrepresented in computer science, including but not limited to: African Americans, Latino/as, American Indians, Native Hawaiians, Native Alaskans, women, persons with disabilities, and first-generation college students. All candidates are asked to describe explicitly the nature of their commitment to and experience with underrepresented groups.


Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. degree or to have advanced to candidacy in computer science (including computer science education) or a related area by the time of application.


CSE is a highly collaborative department, home to over 50 faculty including four teaching faculty. With over 2000 undergraduate CS majors, UC San Diego is deeply committed to undergraduate education and is a leader in undergraduate computer science education at a large scale. The department has pioneered several innovative undergraduate programs and pedagogies to support its large and thriving undergraduate student body. More information about the department can be found at http://www.cse.ucsd.edu/.


We encourage candidates to send applications as soon as possible. Applications received by December 4, 2017 will be given full consideration. However, positions remain open until filled.
