Faculty Opening

The Stanford Department of Computer Science invites applications for a teaching faculty position.  The appointment will be made as a non-tenure line Professor (Teaching), with rank (Associate or Full Professor) depending upon the candidate's seniority and experience.  Normally, the initial appointment term is 5 years, and is eligible for promotion to a continuing term appointment, which provides security of appointment without requiring further formal reappointment.

The Department seeks to strengthen its teaching program through this appointment and fill the position of Associate Department Chair for Education. The normal responsibilities for Professor (Teaching) include: teaching classes (typically four courses during the three quarters of the regular academic year), working to develop CS undergraduate curriculum, and involvement in the broader CS educational community.  The Associate Chair's responsibilities additionally include a leadership role in designing and coordinating the CS undergraduate curriculum and coordinating the core teaching program, with a one-class reduction in teaching responsibility.

The ideal applicant for this position will have a strong commitment to and demonstrated aptitude for teaching, as well as an established reputation and national visibility in Computer Science Education.  All candidates must hold a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related discipline.
