Faculty Hiring

The School of Computing Instruction (SCI) within Georgia Tech’s College of Computing was recently founded to recognize the contributions of CS teaching-track faculty and support their pedagogical efforts.

We invite applications for multiple full-time and long-term faculty positions. Primary responsibilities will include but not be limited to providing high-quality undergraduate teaching. Candidates will be expected to teach a 2-3 load with the assistance of one teaching assistant for every 25 students.

Opportunities to teach graduate courses are also possible as candidates will be matched to courses for which they are the best fit. In addition to teaching, there’s an expectation (and several opportunities) to participate in service at the School, College, and Institute level. Candidates are also encouraged to engage in scholarship and curriculum development. As part of its budget, SCI earmarks funding for these sorts of activities and makes it available to faculty.  

For this cycle, we are seeking candidates who are interested in one or more of the following areas: 

  • Artificial Intelligence  
  • Capstone Design  
  • Computer Organization/Architecture 
  • Discrete Math 
  • Mobile Application Development 
  • Software Engineering 
  • Usability and User Experience 
  • Web Development 

The appointment will be made as a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer, depending on past teaching experience. Both positions are on 9-month renewable contracts with an expectation to start in Fall 2023 on Georgia Tech’s Atlanta campus. Summer teaching for additional compensation is typically available. In some cases, that teaching can be done on one of our multiple study-abroad campuses (Berlin, Barcelona, Metz, etc). 

Qualified applicants must hold a Masters or PhD degree in computer science or related field. Each candidate must also submit a cover letter, CV, teaching statement, link to a sample teaching video, and contact information of at least three references. The top candidates will be invited to interview and give a sample lecture.

Our award-winning teaching-focused faculty have three core missions:   

  • Platform for Creativity and Innovation. SCI’s creative faculty boldly experiment with new ideas and approaches to pedagogy, while continually re-examining proven methods to ensure their approach is effective and practical across a diverse set of courses and students. Ultimately, we consider SCI a platform for meaningful experimentation and invite collaborations both within and beyond Georgia Tech to further push the envelope in computing education.  
  • Scalability of Computing Instruction. SCI’s faculty design and serve as primary instructors for the College’s array of introductory computer science courses, direct the junior design/capstone program for our undergraduate computing majors, and teach a selection of upper-division and graduate level courses that reflect our faculty’s varied interests. At the undergraduate level, SCI faculty teach a third of the College’s 1000-4000 level course offerings or half of the nearly 9000 undergraduate computing course seats each semester. Further, we reach tens of thousands of GT graduate students and non-GT students through special initiatives, such as MOOCs and the state of Georgia’s dual enrollment high school program.   
  • Transparency and Meaningful Dialogue. While the main source of recognition we desire is from the numerous learners our faculty reach, we seek to foster meaningful dialogue and to share what works and what does not work in practice, in order to inspire others to attempt new ideas in computing education. We will use SCI’s platform to encourage the distribution of information and (of course) to learn from others. We aspire to be leaders in the conversation on computing education.
