Clinical Faculty and Regular Faculty – Computer Science
Location: Coeur d’Alene
Division/College: College of Engineering
Employee Category: Faculty
Full/Part Time: Full Time
The Computer Science (CS) Department at the University of Idaho invites applications for two faculty positions at our Coeur d’Alene (CdA) branch campus. One position is a non-tenure track clinical faculty position, while the second one is a tenure-track assistant professor position.
The clinical faculty position will have teaching as a major responsibility, and requires evidence of significant teaching experience; typical teaching responsibilities include up to three undergraduate classes per semester. The candidate may also advise students on their academic program, participate in research projects, serve on graduate students’ supervisory committees, engage in outreach and engagement activities, and act as expert advisers to faculty members or groups. Applicants for the position require demonstrated knowledge and practical experience in the field, scholarly contributions, or other professional accomplishments comparable to those expected of faculty within the unit. This is a permanent promotable faculty position, but is non-tenured.
The tenure-track assistant professor position requires evidence of potential effective teaching and scholarship in teaching and learning, artistic creativity, discovery, and outreach/application/engagement. Appointees in this rank have charge of instruction in assigned classes and laboratories and independent or shared responsibility in the determination of course objectives, methods of teaching, and the subject matter to be covered. Assistant professors are expected to demonstrate the ability to conduct and direct scholarly activities, and to provide intramural and extramural professional service. Startup funding and research support will be extended for the position to facilitate development of an externally funded research program.
The University of Idaho is the state’s land-grant institution, and the leading research institution in the state of Idaho. From its residential campus in Moscow, UI serves the state of Idaho through educational centers throughout the state. Several research centers exist at the University of Idaho, including the Institute for Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Studies, National Institute for Advanced Transportation Technology, Center for Secure and Dependable Systems, Center for Modeling Complex Interactions and the Northwest Knowledge Network. We are a certified National Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Information Assurance and Cybersecurity Education.
The Computer Science Department is housed within the College of Engineering, and delivers education from three locations – Moscow, Idaho Falls, and Coeur d’Alene. We recently received several grants that have further enhanced our capacities to deliver high quality research-based hands-on undergraduate courseware. These grants have enabled high fidelity video conferencing (VC) technology enhanced classrooms that serve our students synchronized education-at-a-distance across our three campuses. In close coordination with North Idaho College, the state of Idaho has recently funded expansion of our offerings to three years of the bachelor’s degree in CdA; funding for the full four years is expected this fall. The CdA program receives and delivers the curriculum using a combination of face-to-face and VC capabilities. Graduate degrees, through the PhD, are already available via our Engineering Outreach (EO) program; these capabilities are enhanced with resident faculty in the three locations.
The UI Coeur d’Alene Center, located on scenic Lake Coeur d’Alene, is 90 miles north of the main University of Idaho campus in a beautiful and affordable resort community that is the economic hub of northern Idaho. The region boasts a growing tech business sector and includes Spokane, Washington, a city of 210,000, 25 minutes to the west. Outdoor recreational and cultural opportunities abound in this lake-, mountain- and riverside destination.
The successful candidate for either of these positions will have an earned PhD in CS or a closely related field. The program includes a tight partnership with North Idaho College and an emphasis on industry involvement and real-world experiences for students. Experts in the areas of robotics, artificial intelligence, embedded systems and cybersecurity are especially encouraged to apply.
We highly encourage candidates from underrepresented US minority groups and/or females to apply for this position.
