The computer science department is expanding rapidly and is preparing to move to the Brendan Iribe Center for Computer Science and Innovation (iribe.cs.umd.edu/home). We are looking for both lecturers and senior lecturers to work with our bright and amazing students. We just launched a new maker space (Sandbox) and are on the lookout for computer scientists who are excited to join our rapidly growing academic community.
Responsibilities: During each fall and spring semester, we anticipate that the lecturer will teach at most three sections involving programming, discrete structures, and/or web development. Once familiar with program requirements, the lecturer will advise undergraduate computer science majors (approximately 4 hours per week, for around nine weeks in a semester). The lecturer may also decide to participate in lower level course curriculum development or become involved in the department’s vibrant research community via research grants and advising. Opportunities for summer and winter teaching for additional pay will also be available.
Application Process: Please apply online at: https://hiring.cs.umd.edu/instructor. Applicants are encouraged to apply by January 15th, 2017. However, the positions will remain open until filled. For any information or questions please email instructorsearch [at] cs.umd.edu.
