The Department of Computer Science has grown significantly in the past decade in faculty, number of students, and research funding. The department benefits from outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, collaborative faculty, and cross-disciplinary research opportunities. Tufts University is one of the smallest universities ranked as a Research 1 university, so it offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere coupled with the intellectual and technological resources of a major research university. Tufts University supports and encourages a culture of interdisciplinary scholarship, and there are numerous such opportunities within the School of Engineering, the School of Arts and Sciences, the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, the School of Medicine, and our other graduate and professional schools.

Located only six miles from historic downtown Boston, faculty members on the Tufts Medford/Somerville campus have extensive opportunities for academic and industrial collaboration as well as participation in the rich intellectual life of the area. The School of Engineering is in the midst of a period of exciting growth that has seen the recruitment of outstanding new faculty, a quadrupling of funded research over the last ten years, the addition of new buildings and laboratory space, an emphasis on building diversity in engineering, and major curricular initiatives at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The ideal Assistant Professor of Teaching candidate will possess prior teaching experience, especially with undergraduate students, and have an engaging teaching style. The candidate must have a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring.

Candidates are encouraged to demonstrate throughout their application their attention to diversity and inclusion as these topics relate to teaching, research, and engagement within the academic environment.

A doctoral degree is preferred but not required.
