About the Opportunity:
The Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University
invites applications for positions at the rank of
Lecturer/Assistant Teaching Professor/Associate Teaching
Professor/Full Teaching Professor in the Master's Programs and in
the Align Program at Northeastern's San Francisco campus beginning
We are seeking highly-motivated individuals committed to excellence
in teaching. Full-time appointments at all ranks are renewable,
career-focused non-tenure-track positions with responsibilities in
teaching and service. Opportunities for research and scholarship
are possible with course releases to make time for scholarship.
Primary responsibilities include teaching graduate courses at the
MS-level and in the Align Program (see below for a description). We
are searching across all areas of computer and data science.
Classes primarily meet in the evening and are small, with 10-40
students in a section. Faculty are supported with TAs and graders.
The successful candidate will create course content and materials,
and collaborate closely with colleagues across all Northeastern
University campuses (Boston, Charlotte, San Francisco, Seattle and
Silicon Valley). Student advising and service to the college and
university are an integral component of the position. Northeastern
University is a global university recognized by our renowned co-op
program and our focus on experiential learning.
About the Align Program: Align's mission is to close America's tech
diversity gap. To do so, we are reinventing Computer Science
post-graduate education by scaling an innovative Experiential
Masters in Computer Science for Non-Computer Science Majors.
Scaling Align is a primary initiative of Northeastern University's
Khoury College of Computer Sciences.
Women represent more than 50% of all bachelor's degree recipients
but only 18% of CS graduates. Similarly, underrepresented
minorities represent 25% of all bachelor's degree recipients but
just 10% of CS graduates. By closing these gaps, we will not only
address a major economic issue, but also a profound issue of social
equity and inclusion.
The Align MS in CS program differs from typical MS in CS programs
in several key ways. It is:
- Designed for students who did not earn an undergraduate degree
- Coupled with Northeastern's famous co-op program to provide a
paid 6-8 month work experience in one of the college's network of
500+ corporate partners
- Taught at night year-round so students can keep up with other
commitments and finish in 2.5 years
- Offered locally at tech hubs across the country: Boston,
Charlotte, San Francisco (opened in January 2019), Seattle, and
Our 5 year pilot to date has already demonstrated a graduation rate
of 91%, with 100% employment and average salaries exceeding
$100,000. Unlike code academies, our graduates are prepared for
tech leadership career paths. Unlike undergraduate programs, the
program takes only 2.5 years to complete. Most importantly, more
than half of our graduates will be women and more than 25% will be
underrepresented minorities. It is the ideal onramp for bringing a
diversity of race, gender and thought to America's tech workforce.
Across all campuses we currently have 560 students in the Align MS
The San Francisco campus is in the heart of the city. Note that
classes are given in the evening in and are offered year
