The Department of Computer Engineering at Santa Clara University invites applications for tenure-track Assistant/Associate/Full Professor positions starting in the 2019-2020 academic year. To complement expertise of current faculty, address areas of strong interest to students, and enhance collaboration opportunities with local industries, the department is particularly interested in candidates with specialization in parallel and distributed computing, human-computer interaction, programming languages, visualization, data science, database systems, artificial intelligence, and security. However, Silicon Valley is an area of broad and ever-changing technical interests and needs, and strong candidates will be seriously considered regardless of area of specialization.
Santa Clara University (https://www.scu.edu) is a comprehensive Jesuit, Catholic university, located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Distinguished by the highest retention rate and ranked second among all master’s universities in the West by U.S. News and World Report, Santa Clara University is California’s oldest operating institution of higher-education. The School of Engineering is committed to improving the human condition through engineering education, practice, and scholarship, promoting the University’s mission to ‘fashion a more humane, just and sustainable world’.
SCU maintains small class sizes and promotes close faculty/student interaction. The University enrollment is approximately 5,500 undergraduate and 3,700 graduate students. The Department (http://www.scu.edu/engineering/cse/) offers B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, with 22 full-time faculty, and a strong pool of approximately 30 part-time adjunct faculty who instruct about 400 undergraduate majors, and about 550 part-time and full-time graduate (M.S. and Ph.D.) majors. The School of Engineering maintains strong ties to local industry.
Applicants must hold a doctorate in computer science, computer engineering, or in a closely related field; have demonstrated a strong potential for high-quality research in computing; and have a strong commitment and ability to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The full-time teaching load is normally seven quarter-level course equivalents per academic year (including lectures and supervision of labs, theses and projects), distributed across three quarters of ten weeks each. However, course release(s) may be approved for faculty actively involved in research.
Review of applications will begin upon receipt and complete application packets received by January 20, 2019 will receive full consideration. However, the search will remain open until the position is filled.
