Teaching Track Faculty in Information Systems (Open Rank)
Posted: September 22, 2022
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionPosition Description
Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh seeks applicants for a teaching-track position beginning in Fall Semester, 2023. This is a career-oriented, renewable faculty appointment with primary responsibility for teaching and scholarly contributions to the educational mission of the University. We are interested in candidates who can teach in one or more of the areas of computing, data science, and information systems. We have several broad areas of interest, including application software development, mobile computing, data science and big data, information security and assurance, and design and development of human-centered information systems. Our most immediate need is to teach a required web application design and development course offered to all second-year students. We will also consider candidates who can teach data science and database courses. We give high priority to the overall passion and promise of the candidate’s teaching. The expected teaching load is 2+2 and salaries are competitive with positions at most top-tier universities in the U.S.
The rank of the initial appointment is open and can be at the Assistant, Associate, or full Teaching Professor level based on prior experience and track record.
Carnegie Mellon University’s undergraduate Information Systems Program develops leaders at the intersection of technology, organizations, and society. We prepare students to develop information technology to support mission objectives, to creatively identify and analyze data to form actionable insights, and to lead change in managerial and policy contexts. Carnegie Mellon University is multidisciplinary to the core, and the Information Systems program draws from the best of our Heinz College and Dietrich College. As a community, we are grounded in real-world problem solving, drive innovation, nurture diversity, and develop compassionate leaders.
The Teaching Track at Carnegie Mellon is a career-oriented, non-tenure, faculty track with renewable fixed terms and opportunities for promotion from Assistant to full Teaching Professor. Although this position emphasizes teaching, curriculum development, and supervising student projects, significant opportunities exist to engage in research independently and/or in collaboration with CMU’s researchers across multiple disciplines. Teaching Track faculty serve on committees alongside other faculty and also take up leadership roles at the college and University levels. Carnegie Mellon values teaching and provides excellent resources to help you develop, implement, and assess educational innovations. Besides, demonstrable professional growth during the term of appointment, such as contributions to research, publication of educational materials or engagement in the professional community will be considered a plus for reappointment.
Carnegie Mellon is committed to increasing the diversity of its community on a range of intellectual and cultural dimensions. We welcome faculty applicants who will contribute to this diversity through their teaching, research and service. We seek to meet the needs of dual-career couples and are a member of the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) that assists with dual-career searches. Carnegie Mellon University makes every effort to provide physical and programmatic access to individuals with disabilities.
