Assistant Teaching Professor positions in Computer Science (Preferential Hire)

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Victoria, Canada is seeking applicants for one position at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor with eligibility for continuing appointment and with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2021. In accordance with the University of Victoria’s Equity Plan, and pursuant with Section 42 of the BC Human Rights code, the Department of Computer Science at the University of Victoria is seeking to hire one faculty member with preference for candidates from any of the following three designated groups: indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, or women.

We are seeking individuals who have a record of excellence in teaching, can teach a variety of computer science courses at the university level, and have an interest in establishing a long-term teaching career with our Department.  We encourage applicants with expertise in any area but the following are of particular interest given our current department needs: introductory programming, software engineering, security and real-time systems.

 Successful candidates will have a PhD in computer science or related area, completed by the appointment date. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in undergraduate student teaching, aim to engage in teaching-related scholarly activities, and have leadership potential in advancing our undergraduate student education. Candidates should demonstrate their commitment to pedagogical enquiry and teaching innovation. The position requires administrative, organizational, mentoring and leadership skills to be able to coordinate large first and second year undergraduate courses, and supervise labs for first and second year courses.

Our department is undergoing significant expansion, and has a strong record of excellence in research and teaching at the undergraduate, masters and PhD level. Located on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, the City of Victoria is a wonderful place to live. It has a vibrant tech sector, an international airport with direct connections to Seattle and major Canadian cities, as well as direct seaplane access between downtown Victoria and the downtowns of Vancouver and Seattle.

 Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, teaching statement, and teaching dossier including course syllabi, teaching evaluations and a list of at least three references including addresses, emails and phone numbers. In particular, we ask for at least two teaching reference letters addressing the candidate's pedagogical strength, and at least one letter addressing the candidate’s subject competency in computer science. Evidence of participation in instructional development (e.g., teaching-related workshops, teaching-related conferences and presentations, or publications) will be considered as an asset. The cover letter should clearly identify the designated group or groups applicants belong to (one or more of aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities or women) to be considered for this preferential search.
