The University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Computer & Information Science is thrilled to welcome applications for multiple teaching positions as a Lecturer. It’s a very exciting time at Penn now, 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 Masters-level courses in data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, software systems, cybersecurity, and other areas, starting in July 2019.
Additionally (see separate job posting), as part of our revamped teaching-track faculty career path, last year we introduced an Assistant Professor of Practice position, which is a great career choice for teaching-focused faculty members who are interested in conducting research in engineering education and developing innovative pedagogical techniques. Applicants are encouraged to apply for any/all positions for which they think they may be qualified.
Additionally, members of our teaching faculty have been working closely with our Director of Diversity & Inclusion to work closely with students to identify and address diversity challenges in our department. As such, within the applicant teaching statement, we welcome a discussion of the candidate’s experiences in establishing and maintaining supportive, inclusive environments for diverse student communities, and plans for being involved in diversity efforts at Penn.
