Position Summary
The Southern Oregon University (SOU) Division of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Computer Science program invites applications for two tenure track, 9 month, faculty positions in Computer Science: one at the Assistant Professor level and one at the Associate Professor level.
The program is seeking a faculty member with expertise within one of the following broad areas:
• Software Engineering,
• Large-scale Data Management, Information Retrieval, Machine Learning, and Data Security,

• Programming Languages and Environments.
The program offers a well-rounded Computer Science degree that seeks to develop digital problem solvers equipped to meet the ever-changing technological needs of today’s world. All faculty teach a variety of programming and core courses that provide students with a solid background in computer science with a focus on software development, algorithms, and data structures. Faculty also teach one or two electives in each of their areas of expertise. A diversity of expertise is sought to maintain a rich degree program that provides additional breadth and depth through elective offerings aligned with student interests and employer needs.
Faculty regularly teach three courses per quarter, advise 20-30 majors, work together on the day-to-day workings of the program, and participate in university governance.
