The Cornell University Department of Computer Science (CS) in the Cornell Bowers CIS College of Computing and Information Science invites applications for a full-time and long-term Lecturer position at Cornell’s Ithaca campus. Cornell University is located in Ithaca, New York, with a county population of about 100,000 people in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. Both Cornell and Ithaca offer a wide range of cultural activities, sports, and outdoor activities with the pleasures of both city and country close at hand.


This non-tenure track faculty position offers a professional teaching career track with possibility for growth.  Appointments are typically three year (Lecturer) or five year (Senior Lecturer) with the expectation of renewal, based on candidate’s qualifications and experience. Candidates for the position should hold a PhD in any computing-related field and have demonstrated commitment to teaching excellence and innovation.  We are seeking candidates who can contribute to large lower- and upper-level undergraduate and master’s level courses across a range of computer science subfields.


A typical full-time (100%) effort load for a Lecturer in Computer Science is two courses per semester, as well as collaborative engagement in the further development of Cornell’s educational mission. The department offers a competitive salary and benefits package, and lecturers play a full and active part in departmental life, from curriculum design and innovation to participation in wider faculty governance and decision-making.


Fostering an inclusive environment is a core value of the Computer Science Department and Cornell as a whole. In line with Cornell’s historical commitment to educating “ … any person … in any study…”, we seek candidates who will create a climate that is inclusive of all students, including students from historically underrepresented groups, and students who have overcome personal challenges. Applicants are asked to submit a Statement of Contribution to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to describe their potential contributions to diversity and inclusion. See for the university’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity, including suggestions for what we are looking for in such statements, and see for some CIS activities in this area.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a diversity statement, a teaching statement speaking to experience, skills, distinct strengths, and evidence of past teaching success and ability, and make arrangements for three letters of reference speaking to the candidates teaching skills and abilities to be submitted electronically.


Application materials should be submitted at:


Evaluation of applicants will begin November 1, 2021 and continue until the positions are filled.
