Position description

The University of California, San Diego Computer Science and Engineering Department seeks applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor (formal title Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment). Teaching Professors are faculty members with a stronger emphasis on teaching who also engage in education and/or disciplinary scholarship. The normal teaching load for Teaching Professors is two courses per quarter at the undergraduate and/or graduate level, including core early undergraduate courses.

We seek candidates who have demonstrated that they are promising computer science and engineering educators, and who are interested in a teaching-focused career.

Candidates who have engaged in activities or efforts 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 are preferred.

An active scholarship program is expected. Applicants must have an expectation of completing a Ph.D. in computer science (including CS education) or a related area by July 1, 2021. Applicants must have prior teaching experience as a TA or lead instructor.

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 and its Teaching Faculty can be found at and
