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 for AY2022-2023 at our campus in Vancouver, where we offer our Master of Science in Computer Science Program.

We are seeking highly-motivated individuals committed to excellence in teaching across all areas of computer science. The successful candidate will create course content and materials, and they will collaborate with colleagues to develop new academic relationships within the university and the local community. Building relationships with students and service to the college and university are integral components of the position. Opportunities for research and scholarship are possible on the teaching track (with a reduced course load). Several of our teaching track faculty are also active in diversity initiatives and service to the local Vancouver community.

Globally, Khoury College has grown rapidly over the last five years in response to increased student demand at the BS, MS, and PhD levels and we expect to continue this rapid growth for the next several years. We invite you to join a fast-moving, ambitious college with an underlying mission that is driven by our motto of “CS for Everyone.” Khoury College is committed to diversity and inclusion in computer science. We aim to establish a computing population—students, faculty, researchers, and staff—that reflects today’s global society.


Candidates must hold a PhD in Computer Science or related degree from an accredited institution by the start date.
