Assistant Professor of Computer Science (Tenure Track)
Provost's Office
Shiley School of Engineering
Full Time Faculty

The Computer Science (CS) Program at the University of Portland (UP) seeks a tenure-track assistant professor of computer science to join the thriving academic community of the Shiley School of Engineering at the University of Portland. This position will start August 2019.

This position will support a new post-baccalaureate degree in computer science where the primary audiences will be liberal arts majors. This position also will allow us to expand course offerings to non-CS majors. All CS faculty members at UP will contribute to the expansion of these areas.

We anticipate conducting the first review of applications on October 1, 2018, and will continue reviewing applications as necessary until the position is filled.

* Information about the Donald P. Shiley School of Engineering: The Shiley School of Engineering has an enrollment of approximately 650 students across four BS majors: civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, and computer science, and two masters programs. Visit www.engineering.up.edu for more information about the Shiley School.

UP’s typical teaching load is 18 semester credits per year (3 courses each semester). Summer and evening teaching may be required. We will consider candidates who can and want to teach a combination of lower division (Java, C) and upper division courses. Areas of desired specialty include computer architecture, security, and programming languages; however, all areas will be considered. Faculty are expected to teach some service courses that may include Introduction to Engineering, Introduction to Computing, Engineering Statistics, and Engineering Economics.

In addition to undergraduate teaching, the candidate is expected to advise undergraduate students, supervise senior capstone projects, develop and teach electives and masters-level courses, engage in scholarly activity within the context of a teaching-oriented university, and serve the University and the Shiley School. This is an ideal position for educators who are passionate about teaching and who want to work at a student-centered institution where we strive for a balance of professional education within a liberal arts environment.
