Teaching faculty positions are renewable, career-oriented, non-tenure-track positions. Initial appointments are typically at the rank of Teaching Assistant Professor, with the possibility of promotion to the ranks of Teaching Associate Professor and Teaching Professor. Senior-level appointments are available for candidates with significant additional experience, stature, and demonstrated teaching excellence.  After the first year, successful teaching faculty may be offered multi-year contracts.

Applicants must have or be working toward a Ph.D. or equivalent in Electrical or Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a closely related field, and a terminal degree of that type is required before starting a teaching faculty position.

Successful applicants will join the department’s thriving community of creative, passionate, and innovative teaching faculty who contribute to high-quality instruction, curriculum development, and student mentoring.  Teaching faculty are full departmental participants and have opportunities to engage in outreach and service activities such as running summer camps, mentoring professional student groups, and community involvement.  Teaching Professors are expected to have a demonstrated interest in improving pedagogy, and may take on leadership roles on campus and in the scientific community to contribute to best practices and/or education research in the discipline.
