Thriving university in robust Southwest Florida seeks innovative software engineering faculty. Three faculty positions available.
With Florida Gulf Coast University experiencing double digit enrollment increases and record high application volume, this is an ideal time for innovative software engineering candidates to consider a move to Southwest Florida, where the economy is strong and poised for growth in the coming decade. FGCU enjoys strong support from companies located in the region, including Arthrex, CallMiner, Gartner and Lee Health as well as the real estate and hospitality industries.
The ABET-accredited Department of Software Engineering in the U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering seeks three candidates to help meet the strong demand for graduates to work in software applications, cybersecurity and other computationally based industries as we expand degree programs and collaborate with faculty in disciplines such as computer and information sciences, mathematics, statistics, bioinformatics, computational chemistry and others.
We are currently seeking the following:
Two professors at the Assistant/Associate rank, each possessing a Ph.D. in software engineering, computer science, computer engineering or closely related field.
One at the instructor (I or II) level, holding at least an M.S. in software engineering, computer science, computer engineering or closely related field.
Successful candidates will teach, be involved in course and/or curriculum development, take part in college and university committees and initiatives and engage in community service.
Help strengthen and expand the course of this burgeoning department located on FGCU’s lush 800-acre campus where sustainability is a primary focus. A 125,000-squarefoot LEED-certified classroom and lab building will open in the current academic year.
FGCU is a regional university with more than 15,000 students and 500 faculty. Situated in Southwest Florida between the Florida Everglades and the Gulf of Mexico, it offers an exceptional environment for living and learning. Half of the 800-acre campus is preserved in its natural state and all students complete a course in sustainability and an 80-hour community service requirement. Southwest Florida provides an exceptional quality of life with lush beaches, year-round recreational opportunities and a subtropical climate. The region offers an ideal environment in which to raise a family.
