The Department of Computer Engineering at Santa Clara University invites applications for one tenure-track Assistant Professor position starting in the 2017-2018 academic year. Applicants must hold a doctorate in computer science, computer engineering, or in a closely related field; have demonstrated a strong potential for high-quality research in computing; and have a strong commitment and ability to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. To complement expertise of current faculty, address areas of strong interest to students, and enhance collaboration opportunities with local industries, the department is particularly interested in candidates with specialization in machine learning, programming languages, mobile computing, or system security. However, Silicon Valley is an area of broad and ever-changing technical interests and needs, and strong candidates will be seriously considered regardless of area of specialization.
The full-time teaching load is normally seven course equivalents per academic year (including lectures and supervision of labs, theses and projects), distributed across three quarters of ten weeks each. However, course release(s) may be approved for faculty actively involved in research. Salary is based on expertise and experience.
