The University of California, San Diego Department of Computer Science and Engineering seeks applications for a Teaching Professor at the Associate or Full level, with tenure (formal title (Senior) Lecturer with Security of Employment). Teaching Professors are faculty members with a stronger emphasis on teaching and scholarly activity related to education than on traditional disciplinary research activities. The normal teaching load for Teaching Professors is two courses per quarter at the undergraduate and/or graduate level.

We seek candidates who have demonstrated that they are strong computer science and engineering educators. 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.

An active scholarship program outside the classroom, usually (but not always) related to computer science education is also expected.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in computer science or a related area at the time of application.

UC San Diego is deeply committed to education and is a leader in undergraduate computer science education at a large scale. More information about the CSE department can be found at

We encourage candidates to send applications as soon as possible. Review of applications will start on February 1 and continue until the position is filled.
