Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and
the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our
world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students,
faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the
confines of discipline, degree, and campus.
Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London;
Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto;
Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and
Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through
this network, we expand opportunities for flexible,
student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused
Northeastern's comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate
programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to
degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among
these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees
designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and
About the Opportunity:
The Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University
invites applications for one or more positions at the rank of
Assistant Teaching Professor/Associate Teaching Professor/Full
Teaching Professor in the Professional Masters Programs and in the
Align Program at Northeastern's Seattle campus for
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.
Successful candidates will create course content and materials, and
collaborate closely with colleagues across all Northeastern
University campuses. 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
The ALIGN bridges are designed for students from a variety of
undergraduate backgrounds who need supplemental technical courses
in order to matriculate into the Master of Science programs. ALIGN
consists of four courses emphasizing the foundational knowledge and
technical skills required for success in the respective Master of
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
in CS, with Seattle being the Align program's original location.
The Seattle campus is in the heart of South Lake Union, and in
Computer Science we are growing rapidly, with currently 300
graduate students and projections to increase this significantly.
Classes are held on campus in both day and evening timeslots, and
we offer both the core Align program courses and a rich and growing
collection of electives in software engineering, artificial
intelligence and machine learning.
Please learn more about the Align program at our website, https://align.khoury.northeastern.edu/
A PhD in computer science or a related field is required by the
appointment start date.
Please submit a cover letter of interest highlighting teaching
accomplishments and relevant professional expertise, a curriculum
vitae, a teaching statement, and the names and contact information
of at least three references.
Compensation is commensurate with qualifications and includes an
