The Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for a Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment. A successful candidate is expected to excel in undergraduate education and must demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service as appropriate to the position.
At UC Santa Barbara, Lecturers with Potential Security of Employment carry equivalent rights and responsibilities as the traditional tenure-track faculty.
In 2023-24, UC Santa Barbara departments are partnering with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to launch a special faculty recruitment initiative named after Benjamin Banneker, the 18th-century African American mathematician, astronomer, antiracist, engineer, ecologist, and peace advocate. Funded by an Advancing Faculty Diversity grant from the UC Office of the President, the Banneker Initiative proposes to hire scientists, engineers and interdisciplinary scholars as UCSB faculty, whose disciplinary and interdisciplinary work shares Banneker’s concerns as an African American scientist, especially his desire to advance scientific and engineering knowledge for the public good.
With the goal of creating a diverse community around such concerns, applicants may be eligible to be fellows in the Benjamin Banneker Initiative. The community of Banneker Fellows will receive funding for cohort building and professional development activities, including enrollment in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Faculty Success Program, proposal writing training, and seed grants.
In order to be considered, applicants should have completed all requirements for a PhD (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a related field, except the dissertation (or equivalent) at the time of application.
PhD degree must be conferred by the time of appointment.
Applicants who show outstanding potential and have a strong commitment to excellence in undergraduate education and innovative and effective approaches to supporting a diverse set of students, and mentoring will be preferred.
The primary criteria for this position are teaching ability of exceptional quality and enthusiasm for teaching a variety of computer science and data science undergraduate courses, along with a broad knowledge in computer science, data science, and its applications. A successful applicant should also be committed to student mentoring and curriculum development. Research, although not a requisite for these positions, is acknowledged and credited.
