Assistant Professor, Computer Science

The Southern Oregon University, (SOU) Division of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Computer Science program invites applications for a tenure track, 9-month, faculty position in Computer Science at the Assistant Professor level.

All specialties will receive full consideration, but we are especially interested in candidates with backgrounds in web development, mobile applications, cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, big data, visualization and graphics, parallel and GPU accelerated computing, operating systems, networking and distributed systems, security, programming languages, and software engineering.

The program offers a well-rounded Computer Science degree that seeks to develop digital problem solvers equipped to meet the ever-changing technological needs of today's world. All faculty teach a variety of programming and core courses that provide students with a solid background in computer science with a focus on software development, algorithms, and data structures. Faculty also teach one or two electives in each of their areas of expertise. A diversity of expertise is sought to maintain a rich degree program that provides additional breadth and depth through elective offerings aligned with student interests and employer needs.

Faculty regularly teach three courses per quarter, advise 20-30 majors, work together on the day-to-day workings of the program, and participate in university governance. Faculty are expected to keep abreast of current trends and developments in computer science as well as maintain a modest research program, ideally one that involves students in one or more aspects of the faculty member's work.

Preference will be given to candidates who (1) show promise to attract and retain students interested in computer science, (2) have industry experience and can expand/deepen SOU's connections with the local tech industry, and/or (3) have demonstrated ability to successfully nurture interested students from a diverse student population (including a number of low income, first generation, and non-traditional students).

We offer excellent comprehensive health and retirement benefits. The start date is September 2022 and the position will be open until filled with priority deadline of October 31. Southern Oregon University is a public liberal arts institution of approximately 6,000 undergraduate and 500 graduate students. The surrounding area is known for cultural offerings such as the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Ashland International Film Festival, and the Britt Music Festival. The Rogue Valley is also renowned for outdoor activities such as hiking, snowboarding, and fishing.
