The College of Engineering at Ohio State University is seeking highly qualified and skilled Senior Lecturers to support the teaching mission of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
Senior Lecturers are responsible for teaching introductory and advanced undergraduate courses in all areas of Computer Science from software engineering to algorithms to computer architecture and AI. The current teaching load for full-time lecturers is roughly seven courses over the fall and spring semesters combined. Summer teaching may also be available, depending on demand. Teaching schedules are flexible. The positions are full-time and non-tenure-track. Salary will depend on the candidate's qualifications and experience.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is one of the oldest computing programs in the country and is a national leader in computing research and education. We create, teach, and actualize the principles that connect computing and society while advancing the forefront of foundational computer science into interdisciplinary realms. With current strength of 56 tenure-track faculty and 9 faculty of practice, the department is poised for a large-scale expansion over the next few years. The department continues to raise its national and international research profile, as exemplified by the recent NSF awards for two AI Institutes and a Harnessing the Data Revolution Institute, netting a total of $55M in research funding. The department will continue to invest in creative and team science activities leading to ever increasing strengths in both foundational and applied AI while advancing traditional topics of computer science. The department is also developing innovative academic programs centered on AI and data analytics with various campus partners in topics such as cybersecurity, data analytics, digital health, and multimedia. CSE faculty closely collaborate with various centers on campus including the Translational Data Analytics Institute (TDAI), the Initiative for Food and Agricultural Transformation (InFACT), and the Ohio Supercomputer Center. CSE is vested in creating new and strengthening existing Diversity and Inclusion programs to provide an inclusive environment that will welcome all scholars. The department, through its growth, research prowess, academic offerings, and a welcoming culture, is poised to be the hub of computing scholarship and education on OSU’s campus.
An appointee to a senior lecturer position will have (1) an earned doctorate in Computer Science, (2) a master’s degree and at least 5 years of teaching experience with documentation of high-quality teaching, or (3) extensive experience (20+ years) in the computing field.
