The Department of Computer Science and Engineering
(CSE) at University at Buffalo (UB) invites candidates to apply for the position of Assistant Professor of Teaching (Lecturer)
, with a focus on teaching Artificial Intelligence or Computer Systems at the MS level . Successful candidates will have a passion for teaching and operate effectively in a team environment and in a diverse community of students and faculty, as well as share our vision of helping all constituents reach their full potential.
While the focus of this position is teaching at the MS level, lecturer duties generally include teaching and development of computer science and computer engineering courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level; service which may include student advisement; industry internships; laboratory and instrumentation upgrades; student excellence initiatives; program assessment and accreditation; diversity enhancement; and external educational grant support in collaboration with the CSE Undergraduate and Graduate Studies Committees.
Lecturers have both teaching (80%) and service (20%) obligations. While there is no research requirement, lecturers are welcome to pursue research and funding opportunities. Lecturers have indefinitely renewable term appointments of up to 3 years at a time, with the possibility of evergreen status which automates renewals. Lecturers are voting members of the faculty and are eligible for full benefits.
Review of applications will begin in September and we are looking at both Spring 2024 and Fall 2024 start dates.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) offers BS degrees in computer science (accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org/
), and in computer engineering (accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org/
), a combined 5-year BS-MS program, a minor in computer science, a Certificate in Data-Intensive Computing, and several joint programs (BS in Computer Science/MBA, BS in Computational Physics, BA in Social Sciences Interdisciplinary - Cognitive Science Concentration, BS in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology - CSE concentration) as well as MS and PhD programs in Computer Science & Engineering.
The department currently has over 60 faculty, including 14 teaching faculty, approximately 2,500 undergraduate majors, 900 masters' students and 150 PhD students. Over 20 junior faculty members have been hired since 2017, and we are continuing to expand. Two members of our faculty currently hold key university leadership positions, and nine members of our faculty are IEEE and/or ACM Fellows. The department is well known for offering an excellent collaborative and nurturing environment for faculty. A total of 10 junior faculty received NSF CAREER awards in the past 4 years, with 5 of them coming in 2019 which sets a national record.
Our faculty members are actively involved in cutting-edge research and successful interdisciplinary programs and centers devoted to algorithms and theory; artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data mining; biometrics; biomedical computing and bioinformatics; computational and data science and engineering; computer architecture and hardware; computer vision and multimedia systems; computing education; computer security, cryptography, and privacy; connected and autonomous vehicles and sustainable transportation; database systems; distributed systems and networks; edge computing and embedded systems; information integrity; high performance computing; human-computer interaction; mobile computing; natural language processing; programming language and software engineering; operating systems; robotics; and society and computing. Our faculty has an excellent publication record.
Since 2015, the department has moved up its rank to be among the top 35 on csrankings.org and is among the top 25 in two recent years (2017 and 2019). During the same period, our research expenditure has grown from $4.5 million (for AY 2015- 2016) to $10 million (AY 2022-2023). In early 2023, a multi-institute research team led by UB CSE faculty received a highly competitive $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation to establish a national institute to develop AI technologies to help children with speech and language disorders.
