The University of Chicago
Adjunct Professor of Computer Science
Department of Computer Science, Physical Sciences Division
Position Type: Faculty
Mar 30, 2021
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago is seeking qualified applicants for the position of Adjunct Professor of Computer Science to teach in its Masters Program in Computer Science (MPCS, https://masters.cs.uchicago.edu), starting in the 2021/22 academic year. The search is open with respect to subfield, but we encourage applications from practitioners and educators in the fields of Computer Systems, Security, Databases, and Software Engineering.
Adjunct faculty are appointed to an initial one-year term, with possibility of renewal to a three or five year term, and are typically expected to teach at least one course per academic year, but may teach up to four courses per academic year.
Courses are held for nine weeks during each academic quarter, with the tenth week for a final project or exam. Instruction is expected to be primarily in person, but may be remote due to the University’s COVID-19-related health and safety protocols and associated requirements (once in-person instruction becomes the default mode of instruction, some classes may continue to use a remote or hybrid format). Courses can meet in the daytime (meeting 2-3 times a week for a total of up to three hours) or in the evening (meeting once per week for up to three hours). The exact day(s)/time(s), as well as the exact mode of instruction (in-person, remote, hybrid) are determined in consultation with the adjunct faculty member.
This position is part-time and is not benefits eligible. This is not a salaried position; adjunct faculty are paid on a per-course basis in the quarter(s) when they teach. Applicants must currently be authorized to work permanently in the U.S.
One of the following:
- A doctorate in Computer Science or a related field at the time of appointment
- A masters degree and 4 years of relevant professional experience.
- A bachelor's degree and 8 years of relevant professional experience.
Must have been the instructor of record in at least 1800 units of university-level undergraduate and/or graduate course offerings in Computer Science or a related field over the span of at least 10 calendar years; 1800 units is typically equivalent to 18 quarter-long course offerings, or 12 semester-long course offerings. See https://registrar.uchicago.edu/records/transcripts/transcript-key/credit-conversion-chart-equivalencies/ for equivalencies between teaching units and semester/quarter hours.
Teaching experience in a professionally-oriented Masters program as an instructor of record.
Work experience in a computing-related industry.
The following materials are required:
Cover letter detailing teaching experience and interests
A list of three references must include name, title, employer/school and email address
At least three teaching evaluations from at least two distinct classes.
We seek a diverse pool of applicants who wish to join an academic community that places the highest value on rigorous inquiry and encourages diverse perspectives, experiences, groups of individuals, and ideas to inform and stimulate intellectual challenge, engagement, and exchange.
