Position Type: Other Academic Appointee
Nov 1, 2019
The Masters Program in Computer Science (MPCS) at the University of Chicago invites applications for the Clinical Professor of Computer Science appointment. This full-time, benefit-eligible appointment is for an initial three-year term, with possibility of renewal. This is a teaching position with no research responsibilities, and a teaching load of six courses across three academic quarters of the year (Autumn, Winter, Spring). MPCS classes range in size, depending on student interest most core classes are between 40-60 students, while elective classes are smaller.
The MPCS curriculum includes immersion classes (introductory classes for students without a background in Computer Science), core classes (focused on building a solid foundation in core computer science concepts), and electives (focused on providing applied and industry-oriented skills). This position will teach immersion programming classes, core courses, and/or electives related to data analytics. You must be able to teach at least two of the following classes: Concepts of Programming, Databases, Advanced Databases, Introduction to Computer Systems, Networks, Operating Systems, Distributed Systems, Parallel Programming, Compilers, Computer Architecture, Computer Security, Functional Programming, Algorithms, Advanced Algorithms, Foundations of Computational Data Analysis, Machine Learning, Applied Data Analysis, or Big Data Application Architectures. Syllabi for past offerings of these classes can be found at https://mpcs-courses.cs.uchicago.edu/
A PhD in Computer Science or a related field at time of appointment, or 10 years of relevant industry experience.
Must have been the instructor of record in at least 3000 units of undergraduate and/or graduate course offerings in Computer Science or a related field over the span of at least 10 calendar years; 3000 units is typically equivalent to 30 quarter-long course offerings, or 20 semester-long course offerings. See https://registrar.uchicago.edu/records/transcripts/transcript-key/credit-conversion-chart-equivalencies/ for equivalencies between teaching units and semester/quarter hours.
Work experience in a computing-related industry is preferred.
