Lecturer - Computer Science
The University of Pennsylvania's Department of Computer & Information Science is pleased to welcome applications for multiple teaching positions as a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer. It is a very exciting time to be engaged in computer science education at Penn, as we are experiencing incredible growth and interest in CS courses at all levels, are developing new on-campus and online learning programs, and are rapidly growing the size of our faculty.
We are seeking dedicated, accomplished, full-time instructors to teach introductory-sequence courses, undergraduate electives, and Master’s-level courses in data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, software systems, software engineering, cyber security, and other areas, starting in July 2021.
Additionally (see separate job posting), as part of our revamped teaching-track faculty career path, recently we introduced a Practice Assistant Professor position. This is a great career choice for teaching-focused faculty members who have a track record of published research in engineering education and are interested in developing and publishing on innovative pedagogical techniques. Applicants are encouraged to apply for any/all positions for which they think they may be qualified.
We seek individuals who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. Members of our teaching faculty participate in departmental and school-level efforts to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and to work closely with students to identify and address diversity challenges. As such, we request a discussion of candidates’ experiences in establishing and maintaining supportive, inclusive environments for diverse student communities, and what plans they have for being involved in diversity efforts at Penn.
PhD in Computer Science or relevant discipline, or equivalent experience.
