    Employee

The University of Washington’s Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering invites applications for two full-time Assistant Teaching Professor positions. These are non-tenure eligible faculty positions hired on multi-year appointments with a 9-month service period (plus summer opportunities) and an anticipated start date of September 1, 2021. We seek candidates with a strong commitment to teaching and student mentoring.

Our Teaching Professors are long-term educational professionals who combine instructional excellence with a variety of leadership, community building, outreach, pedagogy advances, and scholarship. Our school offers a highly collegial and collaborative culture, with a range of teaching and curriculum-development opportunities in lower-division and upper-division courses for majors and non-majors.  The Seattle area is particularly attractive given the presence of significant industrial research laboratories as well as a vibrant technology-driven entrepreneurial community that further enhances the intellectual atmosphere.

The Allen School fosters a diverse and inclusive academic community as a fundamental part of our mission as a public educational institution (see https://www.cs.washington.edu/diversity).  We encourage applicants with a similar commitment to diversity and welcome learning how the applicant's experiences and future plans for teaching and service would support our commitment to diversity and inclusion. The University is building a culturally diverse faculty and staff and strongly encourages applications from women, underrepresented minorities, individuals with disabilities, and covered veterans. The University is a first-round awardee of the National Science Foundation’s ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Award to increase the advancement of women faculty in science, engineering, and math (see www.engr.washington.edu/advance). Moreover, the College of Engineering has consistently had one of the highest percentages of women faculty in the top 50 colleges of engineering (US News and World Report Undergraduate Rankings). Additionally, the University’s Office for Faculty Advancement promotes the hiring, retention, and success of a diverse and inclusive faculty at the University of Washington.
