The Institute for Software Research (ISR) in the School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for a teaching-track position. This is a career-oriented, renewable appointment with an initial appointment of three years. Initial teaching-track appointments are typically at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor, with the possibility of promotion to the ranks of Associate Teaching Professor and Teaching Professor. These ranks are not tenured, but they do provide substantial opportunities for professional growth and long-term contributions to Software Engineering education at Carnegie Mellon University.
This position will be primarily assigned to support the Masters of Software Engineering (MSE) program, which was established in 1996 and which continues to train tomorrow’s leaders in designing, developing and managing Internet-scale, mobile and embedded software-intensive systems. There will also be opportunities to engage in teaching at the undergraduate level. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in cyber-physical systems, embedded systems, Internet of Things, and mobile applications, as well as those with interest in the online delivery of educational content. However, applicants with expertise in all areas of software engineering technologies and methods will be considered. Teaching track faculty in the MSE program are encouraged to innovate in teaching practice, to publish on pedagogy and to develop strong industry and government relations that advance our educational priorities.
ISR is an academic department dedicated to the study of software engineering and societal computing, with two PhD programs and approximately forty faculty members. ISR is one of seven departments within SCS, which has over 200 tenure-track, research, and teaching faculty with expertise spanning traditional computer science, human computer interaction, language technology, machine learning, computational biology, software engineering, and robotics. SCS offers a highly collaborative and uniquely interdisciplinary environment that promotes innovation and entrepreneurship in both teaching and research.
