The Department of Informatics in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for a Professor of Teaching - Open Ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) with specialization in Software Engineering.
The successful candidate will play a significant role in the Professional Master of Software Engineering (MSWE) program and the state supported undergraduate program. The Professor of Teaching - Open Ranks will teach software engineering and computer science courses, support the intense bootcamp-like experience of the first quarter, mentor students in highly technical independent projects, and will be available for technical questions throughout the year. This position requires teaching excellence, public service, and engagement in original scholarly, creative, and/or pedagogical work.
The Department of Informatics is highly interdisciplinary with faculty backgrounds in computer science, design, education, health informatics, humanities, media arts, organizational studies, and psychology. This, in no small measure, contributes to its international reputation as an innovative site for research and education in information technology. Six graduate programs and four undergraduate degrees are currently being offered. Highly desired candidates will be dedicated to teaching excellence, will thrive in and add to our unique environment. The final candidate will join a welcoming and supportive community of teaching-oriented faculty and continuing lecturers.
The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in a STEM field with a strong track record in the practice of software engineering.
