Carnegie Mellon University

Teaching-track Position

The Institute for Software Research (ISR) in the School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for a teaching-track position. This is a career-oriented, renewable appointment with an initial appointment of three years. Initial teaching-track appointments are typically at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor, with the possibility of promotion to the ranks of Associate Teaching Professor and Teaching Professor. These ranks are not tenured, but they do provide substantial opportunities for professional growth and long-term contributions to Software Engineering education at Carnegie Mellon University.

We seek candidates with demonstrated excellence in teaching and commitment toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly community, and especially invite candidates with a demonstrated track record in mentoring and engaging students from groups traditionally underrepresented in software engineering and computer science. Professional experience in software engineering and familiarity with current software engineering technologies and methods is desirable.

ISR is an academic department dedicated to the study of software engineering and societal computing, with approximately thirty faculty members. ISR is one of seven departments within SCS, which has over 200 tenure-track, research, and teaching faculty with expertise spanning traditional computer science, human computer interaction, language technology, machine learning, computational biology, software engineering, and robotics. SCS offers a highly collaborative and uniquely interdisciplinary environment that promotes innovation and entrepreneurship in both teaching and research. Teaching track faculty contribute to the design of new curricula and the adoption of new teaching methods.

An applicant should submit (1) a letter of application describing his or her interests in teaching undergraduates and Master's students at Carnegie Mellon University and in promoting inclusion and diversity in Software Engineering, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a statement of teaching philosophy, (4) the names and email addresses of three or more individuals whom the applicant has asked to provide letters of reference, and if available, (5) supplementary materials including (a) teaching evaluations, video samples of teaching, curriculum portfolios, or other evidence of commitment to teaching effectiveness, and (b) evidence of commitment to promoting inclusion and diversity in Software Engineering.
