FACULTY OPPORTUNITIES

COMPUTER SCIENCE SCHOLAR - OPEN POOL

The Department of Computer Science at CSU seeks applications in the 2020-2021 academic year from individuals who are interested in a long-term career in academia but feel it would be beneficial to have a few years of practical experience before accepting a tenure track position at a leading research university.

The Computer Science Scholar program provides an appointment combining teaching and research responsibilities with university career development programs and mentorship from department faculty.  A Scholar will teach a mix of department courses and also develop at least one course in their preferred field.  A Scholar is expected to supervise a modest research program comprising work by undergraduate or master’s degree students or both.  Scholars are eligible to submit proposals to outside funding agencies, and the university and department will provide resources to help Scholars learn to write and submit proposals.  Scholars are expected to spend a substantial fraction of their time leveraging university programs and department faculty mentoring to develop their teaching and research skills.  Scholars are assigned individual faculty mentors.

The department encourages applicants with diverse interests who will expand the offerings and intellectual directions of the department.  Applicants pursuing research programs that combine computing with other disciplines, such as biological computing or computing pedagogy, are also welcomed.

CSU is an EO/EA/AA employer and conducts background checks on all final candidates.
