Job Description

Assistant Professor, Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science in the College of Social Sciences, Mathematics, and Education at The University of Tampa invites applications for a full-time tenure track position at the rank of assistant professor beginning in August 2023.

The University of Tampa is a medium-sized, comprehensive, residentially-based private institution of more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students.  The University is ideally situated on a beautiful 110-acre campus next to the Hillsborough River, adjacent to Tampa’s dynamic central business district, which is a growing, vibrant, diverse metropolitan area. UT reflects this vibrancy; with 24 consecutive years of enrollment growth UT boasts 300 student organizations, a multicultural student body from 50 states and 130 countries, and “Top Tier” ranking in U.S. News & World Report.

The Department of Computer Science and computer science baccalaureate program are relatively new, and the program enrolled its inaugural class in the 2021-22 academic year. This is an ideal opportunity to participate in the growth of a new degree program and its unique curriculum.

The ideal candidate will have earned a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related field and have a broad background in computer science. ABD will be considered; however, the terminal degree must be earned by July 2023 as a condition of employment.

The Department of Computer Science values faculty who balance excellent teaching with active scholarship. Responsibilities include teaching courses at the undergraduate level, advising students, conducting research, and participating in academic and professional service activities. Prior experience teaching undergraduate students is strongly preferred. The normal teaching load is three four-credit hour courses per semester. The successful candidate is expected to teach a wide variety of undergraduate courses in computer science as well as develop new courses in relevant areas of expertise. Strong candidates from all areas within computer science will be considered; however, applicants with teaching experience and active research in software engineering and DevOps, data mining and data management, machine learning and artificial intelligence, computer graphics and visualization, and human- computer interaction are especially encouraged to apply.

Highly effective, engaging teaching is a top priority, and innovative approaches to teaching are welcome. Professional achievement and service to the Department, College, University, and the broader community are also required. Candidates should be committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service.

For further details, and to apply, please visit our website at
Applicants should electronically submit a cover letter; a detailed curriculum vitae; a statement of teaching philosophy; a statement of research; a statement of diversity, equity, and inclusion; a graduate transcript; and full contact information of at least four references. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Upon request, applicants may be required to submit a brief video sample of their teaching.

The University has a strong core curriculum rooted in the liberal arts, an enduring commitment to internationalization that has garnered the Senator Paul Simon Award, and a practical, experiential approach to learning.
