Faculty Position in Computer & Information Sciences

(Continuing Track – Open Rank)

The Department of Computer & Information Sciences at the University of Delaware (CIS at UD) invites applications for a full-time continuing, non-tenure-track teaching faculty position to begin August 15, 2024.

The candidate’s primary responsibility will be teaching (typically three to four courses per semester). There is a particular need for teaching at the introductory computer science level. Applicants should have a record of teaching excellence and a strong commitment to teaching. Experience with broadening participation in computing is a plus. A Ph.D. degree in computer science or a related discipline by the start date is expected, though exceptional candidates with a master’s degree will be considered.

Our department (over 35% women faculty) prides itself on quality teaching: in the last 20 years, no other department has won more University-wide Excellence in Teaching awards. In addition to research in the traditional computer science disciplines, CIS at UD has an active computer science education research group in collaboration with the College of Education and significant outreach to K-12 teachers and students in collaboration with the state Dept of Education. Join CIS at UD as we experience increasing student quality in our majors, growth in our faculty and student body, and the benefits of a top-100 NSF grant institution.

The Continuing Track (CT) is UD’s full-time, continuing faculty line, similar to the tenure track. CT faculty enjoy contracts that increase in length over time and, like tenure-track faculty, receive full and generous benefits, including family-friendly benefits, as part of their compensation package. CT faculty with terminal degrees hold professorial rank and have a path to promotion up to full professor; CT faculty without terminal degrees are at the instructor rank and have a parallel path to promotion. All CT faculty earn sabbaticals, have opportunities to pursue research, participate in shared governance, and hold academic leadership positions (see “Why Do You Want to be a CT Faculty at UD?” )

One of the oldest institutions of higher education in this country, the University of Delaware is a premier co-educational institution of 17,000+ undergraduate students and 3500+ graduate students. With a distinguished faculty and strengths in study abroad, undergraduate research, and active and discovery learning, the University offers a broad range of undergraduate and graduate degrees across seven colleges. The beautiful 100-acre central campus is located in Newark, DE, about halfway between New York City and Washington, DC. 

Applications should include in order: a cover letter (addressed to Prof. Keith Decker, Faculty Search Committee Chair), a vita, at least 3 references with contact information, and a statement on teaching.  The committee will continue review of applications until the position is filled.

The University of Delaware is an equal opportunity employer. Women and members of historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.  The University's Notice of Non-Discrimination can be viewed at:
