The Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University Seattle Campus invites applications for one or more positions at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor/Associate Teaching Professor/Full Teaching Professor beginning January 2024 or September 2024 as part of the MS program offered at our campus in South Lake Union.

We are seeking highly motivated individuals committed to high-quality, inclusive teaching and equity in computer science. Full-time appointments at all ranks are renewable, career-focused, non-tenure-track positions with responsibilities in teaching and service. Khoury College also supports teaching faculty to pursue impactful activities beyond teaching and service responsibilities. Many teaching faculty are active in research and scholarship, diversity initiatives, and service to their local communities.

Khoury College has grown rapidly over the last five years in response to increased student demand, and we expect to continue this rapid growth for the next several years. We invite you to join a college with significant support for teaching-track faculty and 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. Building relationships with students and service to the college and university are integral components of the position.
