Senior University Lecturer/University Lecturer
Baruch Schieber (Chair)
The Department of Computer Science at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) seeks candidates to fill a University Lecturer/Senior University Lecturer position. Successful candidates must have an MS degree in Computer Science or a related area. A PhD degree and prior university teaching experience are an advantage. Candidates should be knowledgeable in software engineering and programming languages (e.g., Java, C/C++, Python). Knowledge in project management, operating systems, computer networks, and databases is an advantage. Candidates are expected to mainly teach courses under the umbrella of Cybersecurity in support of our graduate and undergraduate programs. The successful candidate will also be involved in creating course content and materials with a focus on experiential and project-based learning.
NJIT has recently expanded its graduate Data Science programs to Jersey City, just across the Hudson River from the financial district of Lower Manhattan in New York City, where it serves the many working professionals in that region. The instructional staff of YWCC are expected to teach at this site as needed.
The University Lecturer/Senior University Lecturer position requires teaching or engaging in related pedagogical activities for 12 contact hours (per week) each semester at the undergraduate and/or graduate level.
Must abide by the university's core values which include excellence, integrity, civility, social responsibility, diversity and communication.
Successful candidates must have an MS in Computer Science or a related computing area and will have demonstrated an expert grasp of knowledge of the Cybersecurity field at all levels, either through a demonstrated record of teaching excellence, or through industrial experience. Strong written, oral and interpersonal skills are required in order to communicate effectively with students in person and online. The formal education and experience prerequisites may be waived at the university’s discretion if the candidate can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the university an equivalent combination of education and experience specifically preparing the candidate for success in the position.
A PhD and prior university teaching experience are advantages, as is significant industrial experience.
