Non-Tenure Track Faculty Positions

Non-Tenure Faculty Positions

The School of Computing and Information (SCI), the newest school at the University of Pittsburgh, aims to create and harness data-driven technology, science, and expertise to improve the security, performance, and understanding of complicated, interacting natural, social, and engineered systems. Predictive modeling and insightful analysis for evidence-based decision-making, in the context of these interacting systems, is key to our mission. As we build and expand the school, it is crucial that we continue and strengthen our leadership in addressing underrepresentation by fostering a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for students, faculty, and staff.

About the Position

Non-tenure track positions for Lecturer, Professor of Practice, Assistant Professor, and Associate Professor are available that are long-term, career-oriented and renewable. These positions offer exciting and long-term paths to teach and develop novel undergraduate programs, including the rethinking of curriculum to reflect emerging concepts, new skills and the deep entwinement of computing and information into other disciplines. Non-tenure positions also offer opportunities to teach classes at the graduate-level in computer science, information science, library science, and telecommunications. Such programs are essential to train polymaths who understand the abstractions that unite disciplines, and can apply these concepts. We strongly encourage scholars who have experience working with diverse students and an investment in embedding inclusion in their teaching to apply. As we transition to a four-year undergraduate program, individuals filling these openings will have a unique opportunity to develop inclusive curriculum that teaches both current computer science, information science, and library and information science concepts as well as polymathic ones. For positions at the rank of Assistant and Associate Professor, a PhD is required. For positions at Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, and Professor of Practice, an M.S. is required, with a PhD strongly preferred.

About the School of Computing and Information

As a new school, we are working to develop and expand upon many exciting initiatives. In collaboration with multiple units at Pitt and other leading organizations in the region, we have launched the Modeling and Managing Complicated Systems (momacs) Institute. Our faculty are involved in developing numerous interdisciplinary research programs, launching a first year-admitting undergraduate program, creating joint academic programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and creating a new Professional Institute to close critical skills gaps by providing specialized education to working professionals.

Pittsburgh is a vibrant hub of education, technology, and medicine, with many startups and established companies throughout the region. The region offers an exceptionally high quality of life, with low cost housing, excellent secondary schools, abundant outdoor activities, and rich cultural attractions well beyond other cities of its size. SCI has numerous connections to centers, institutions, and companies in the region, including the School of Medicine, Carnegie Mellon University, the City of Pittsburgh, the Center for Causal Discovery, the Center for Energy, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition, Google, Uber, Oculus, Argo AI, and many others. Through these connections, there are ample opportunities to collaborate broadly and build multi-disciplinary research teams of the highest caliber.
