Full-time Teaching Positions

Chicago, IL

The Masters Program in Computer Science (MPCS) at the University of Chicago invites applications for all ranks of the Clinical appointment (Assistant Clinical Professor of, Associate Clinical Professor of, and Clinical Professor of Computer Science). These full-time, benefit-eligible appointments are for an initial three-year term, with possibility of renewal. These are teaching positions with no research responsibilities, and a teaching load of six courses across three academic quarters of the year (Autumn, Winter, Spring). MPCS classes range in size, depending on student interest: most core classes are between 40-60 students, while elective classes are smaller. 

The MPCS curriculum includes immersion classes (introductory classes for students without a background in Computer Science), core classes (focused on building a solid foundation in core computer science concepts), and electives (focused on providing applied and industry-oriented skills). These positions will teach immersion programming classes, core courses, and/or electives related to data analytics. You must be able to teach at least two of the following classes: Concepts of Programming, Databases, Advanced Databases, Introduction to Computer Systems, Networks, Operating Systems, Distributed Systems, Parallel Programming, Compilers, Computer Architecture, Computer Security, Functional Programming, Algorithms, Advanced Algorithms, Foundations of Computational Data Analysis, Machine Learning, Applied Data Analysis, or Big Data Application Architectures.
