LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY
DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING & COMPUTER SCIENCE
TENURE TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF COMPUTER SCIENCE

The Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor of Computer Science to begin fall, 2019. A Ph.D. in computer science or closely related field is required. The mission of the LMU Computer Science program is to be a recognized venue for excellent baccalaureate education in computing through a solid curricular foundation in computational thinking, integration of interdisciplinary studies, emphasis in communication skills, collaboration with industry, and service to the profession and the community. Its student population ranges from those completely new to computing in their freshman year to those with years of programming experience. As such, successful candidates must be able to present ideas at multiple levels of abstraction from distinct perspectives. They must demonstrate knowledge of both algorithmic complexity and software performance, and can choose the right technique, language, or tool for a given task. They adhere to the ethics of software development, respecting the rights of authors and users and supplying attribution when needed. In addition to excellent teaching, successful candidates are expected to establish active research programs that will include undergraduates and perform department, college, and university service when called upon to do so.

The Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science is fully committed to a culturally diverse faculty and student body. Adjacent to “Silicon Beach” in Los Angeles, LMU enrolls about 6,200 undergraduate and 2,100 graduate students. Loyola Marymount, a comprehensive university in the mainstream of American Catholic higher education, seeks professionally outstanding applicants who value its mission and share its commitment to academic excellence, the education of the whole person, and the building of a just society. LMU is an equal opportunity institution actively working to promote an intercultural learning community. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. (Visit www.lmu.edu for more information.)

Complete applications must include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy within an institution such as LMU, a description of proposed research projects, and three letters of recommendation. If you have prior relevant teaching experience you are encouraged to include student and/or peer evaluation information. Apply online at https://jobs.lmu.edu. Letters of recommendation should be emailed to Dr. John David N. Dionisio, chair of the Computer Science search committee, care of Jacquelyn Smith at Jacquelyn.Smith@lmu.edu. Please address questions to Dr. Dionisio at dondi@lmu.edu or (310) 338-5782. Review of completed applications will begin November 1, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
