Job Description

To apply for this job please visit masters.cs.uchicago.edu.

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago is seeking qualified applicants for all ranks of the Clinical appointment (Assistant Clinical Professor of Computer Science, Associate Clinical Professor of Computer Science, and Clinical Professor of Computer Science). The “Clinical” appointment is a full-time teaching-track position used in professionally-oriented programs at the University of Chicago. It is unrelated to clinics in a medical sense.

We are specifically seeking applicants to teach Systems classes (Networks, Operating Systems, etc.) in the Masters Program in Computer Science (MPCS, https://masters.cs.uchicago.edu), or to teach Python Programming and/or Databases classes in the MPCS and in the MS in Computational Analysis and Public Policy (CAPP, https://capp.uchicago.edu/). These positions also include the opportunity to teach additional classes in the applicant’s field of expertise.

This full-time, benefits-eligible appointment is for an initial term of three to five-years, with possibility of renewal. This is a teaching position with no research responsibilities, and a teaching load of six courses across three academic quarters of the year (Autumn, Winter, Spring).

The Masters Program in Computer Science (MPCS) offers a comprehensive and professionally-oriented computer science education that combines the foundations of computer science with the applied and in-demand skills necessary for careers in technology, and is targeted for students interested in tech careers in Software Engineering, Data Analytics, Product Management and Application Development.

MSCAPP is a professionally-oriented program offered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and the Harris School of Public Policy, and is designed for students seeking to leverage the power of technology and data science within the field of public policy. Through a highly interdisciplinary curriculum and opportunities for applied experience, students build expertise across the realms of computer science, data science, statistics, and public policy analysis, and ultimately embark on a career using modern tools to make a positive social impact within the public and non-profit sector.

Courses in both programs are held for nine weeks during each academic quarter, with the tenth week for a final project or exam. Instruction is expected to be primarily in person, with some limited opportunities to offer remote or hybrid courses.

For each clinical position/rank, applicants should have one of the following: a doctorate in Computer Science or a related field at the time of appointment; a masters degree and 4 years of relevant professional experience; or a bachelor’s degree and 8 years of relevant professional experience.  Work experience in a computing-related industry is preferred.  In addition, each rank has the following requirements:

For the Assistant Clinical Professor of Computer Science position we require teaching experience in Computer Science or a related field at the undergraduate or graduate level, as either an instructor of record or a teaching assistant.

For the Associate Clinical Professor of Computer Science position, candidates must have been the instructor of record in at least 1800 units of undergraduate and/or graduate course offerings in Computer Science or a related field over the span of at least six calendar years. 1800 units is typically equivalent to 18 quarter-long course offerings, or 12 semester-long course offerings.  See https://registrar.uchicago.edu/records/transcripts/transcript-key/credit-conversion-chart-equivalencies/ for equivalencies between teaching units and semester/quarter hours.

For the Clinical Professor of Computer Science position, candidates must have been the instructor of record in at least 3000 units of undergraduate and/or graduate course offerings in Computer Science or a related field over the span of at least 10 calendar years; 3000 units is typically equivalent to 30 quarter-long course offerings, or 20 semester-long course offerings. See https://registrar.uchicago.edu/records/transcripts/transcript-key/credit-conversion-chart-equivalencies/ for equivalencies between teaching units and semester/quarter hours.
