Computer Science – Tenure Track Positions

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) seeks applications for two tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science starting August 1, 2019. We are looking for candidates who show exceptional promise in both research and teaching. Preferred research areas are those that build upon our existing areas of strength, which include algorithms, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, data analytics, databases and data mining, foundations of computer science, human-computer interaction, image processing, networking, and security, but applicants in other research areas are also encouraged to apply. For one position (position number 998709), we are particularly interested in candidates who can pursue interdisciplinary research in the natural and social sciences, and half of the teaching responsibilities of this position will be dedicated to UNCG’s new interdisciplinary Master of Science in Informatics and Analytics program. For the second position (position number 001871), we are particularly interested in candidates who work in core areas of computer science.

The Department of Computer Science at UNCG is a thriving department with an established, ABET- accredited B.S. degree program and an active M.S. degree program, and is experiencing rapid enrollment growth. The department currently has 9 tenured and tenure-track faculty members who are all active in research, as well as lecturers and part-time faculty.

Computer Science – Non-Tenure Track Positions

The Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro invites applicants for a non-tenure-track teaching position (Lecturer or Visiting Faculty), available for the 2018-2019 academic year, to meet the teaching needs in our rapidly growing and vibrant Computer Science program. We are interested in both applicants with an interest in teaching long-term, and those looking to build some teaching experience in a one year appointment.

Responsibilities: This is a non-tenure-track, 9 month appointment that includes the possibility of renewal based on factors including, but not limited to, continued need, satisfactory performance, and availability of funding. The position involves teaching a variety of courses in computer science for majors and non-majors. Teaching assignments will take into account the candidate’s experience and, whenever possible, preferences. The courses will primarily be lower-level undergraduate classes, but if a candidate’s experience, qualifications, and interest are appropriate then teaching assignments could include upper-level or master’s level classes. Classes are generally during the day, although an occasional evening section may be required. More information about the department can be found at our web site, http://compsci.uncg.edu/
