Instructor for Online Computer Science Program

Oregon State University | School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) currently serves over 3,500 students and ranks #2 nationally in the number of CS degrees conferred per year. Through this program and others, the College of Engineering delivers a transformational education that graduates leaders who drive change throughout their lives. The university’s Ecampus partners with more than 700 faculty members and has earned national acclaim for the quality of its faculty development program. Ecampus is a widely respected leader in online education, having been ranked in the top 10 nationally five years in a row by U.S. News & World Report.  OSU offers both an online Bachelor’s degree in CS and an online Post Bacc program that enables students with a Bachelor’s degree outside CS to earn a CS degree in an accelerated fashion.

Oregon State University’s (OSU) School of EECS invites applications for online Instructors in our Computer Science program. Available Instructor positions are fixed-term, non-tenure track, 9-month and 12-month, part-time and full-time (.30 to 1.0 FTE), with the possibility of renewal at the discretion of the School Head. This program is fully online and does not require Instructors to live within the vicinity of the Corvallis campus. Remote candidates who are hired will receive a telecommute package including computer, monitor, and headset. Candidates would be expected to attend a 1-week initial in-person training and then come to the Corvallis campus for 1 week every 6 months. Travel expenses will be reimbursed according to university guidelines. (Due to COVID-19, in-person training may be held remotely through video applications).

Candidates should hold a Master’s degree in Computer Science or a related field and have experience teaching, mentoring and facilitating learners, preferably in an online setting.  Candidates must also be able to demonstrate a deep understanding in at least one area of high need for our program (Security, Operating Systems, Programming Languages) or in at least two areas of secondary need. 

The OSU College of Engineering is committed to being recognized as a national model of inclusivity and collaboration. We strive to develop a community of faculty, students, and staff that is inclusive, collaborative, diverse and centered on student success. As such, we seek applicants who will broaden our capacity to advance student success across individual identities, racial/ethnic categories and socioeconomic backgrounds.
