About the Opportunity

The Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University invites applications for one or more positions at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor/Associate Teaching Professor/Full Teaching Professor as part of Align Online beginning September 2024. The Align program is a national initiative to close America’s tech diversity gap by offering an innovative Master of Science in CS for non-computer science majors. Align Online, brings the program to students across the United States and territories, by offering the courses online combined with a residency experience in which students visit one of our network campus location three times during their first year. The innovative program combines the flexibility of online learning with the connection of in-person experiences.

We are seeking highly motivated individuals committed to high-quality, inclusive teaching and equity in computer science. Full-time appointments at all ranks are renewable, career-focused, non-tenure-track positions with responsibilities in teaching and service. Khoury College also supports teaching faculty to pursue impactful activities beyond teaching and service responsibilities. Many teaching faculty are active in research and scholarship, diversity initiatives, and service to their local communities.

Khoury College has grown rapidly over the last five years in response to increased student demand at the BS, MS, and PhD levels, and we expect to continue this rapid growth for the next several years. We invite you to join a college with significant support for teaching-track faculty and an underlying mission that is driven by our motto of “CS for Everyone.” Khoury College is committed to diversity and inclusion in computer science. We aim to establish a computing population—students, faculty, researchers, and staff—that reflects today’s global society. Building relationships with students and service to the college and university are integral components of the position.
