The College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) invites applications for teaching faculty positions at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level in Computer Science in Shenzhen. These are full-time tenure track positions with the Georgia Tech Shenzhen Institute (GTSI) in Shenzhen, China. These positions will reside in China only.
GTSI is a Joint Institute between Georgia Tech and Tianjin University (TJU) and is located in Shenzhen, the so-called “Silicon Valley of China”. GTSI has received approval from the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia as well as the Chinese Ministry of Education to offer Georgia Tech’s existing Master’s degree programs in Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Analytics, Computer Science, and Industrial Design. Georgia Tech is responsible for Georgia Tech academic program operations at GTSI. A subset of the GTSI student body will also receive a Tianjin University Master’s degree (double MS degrees) by completing additional TJU graduate coursework and dissertation requirements beyond the Georgia Tech degree requirements.
Georgia Tech's undergraduate Computer Science program is currently ranked No. 5 and its graduate Computer Science program is ranked No. 8 in the U.S. according to the U.S. News and World Report.
Successful GTSI faculty candidates will be expected to teach courses from Georgia Tech’s MS curriculum in Computer Science, mentor students, engage in field-related professional achievement and activity, and perform service to GTSI and the professional society. Teaching and service constitute the criteria for advancement for GTSI faculty on the teaching track. Although not a job requirement, teaching faculty are welcome to engage in research as well and supervise student projects.
Employment, compensation and benefits of these teaching faculty members will be through GTSI. They will be interviewed by the relevant faculty body at Georgia Tech -- Atlanta.
