The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Samueli School of Engineering at UC Irvine (EECS@UCI) invites applications for a “Professor of Teaching in Engineering” position with potential security of employment. This position parallels the tenure track faculty research series starting Fall Quarter 2016. It will involve coordinating and teaching undergraduate and graduate lecture and laboratory courses in computer engineering. Teaching responsibilities will include teaching, development, support and assessment of best-practices for computer engineering education across the department, and leadership on undergraduate accreditation initiatives. This position falls under the Lecturer with Security of Employment series at the University of California and requires, in addition to excellent teaching and service, that the candidate makes outstanding and recognized contributions to the development of his or her specific discipline and/or of pedagogy.

EECS@UCI is a vibrant unit with a growing stature offering B.S. degrees in computer engineering, computer science and engineering, and electrical engineering, and graduate degrees (M.S. and Ph.D.) in electrical and computer engineering. Located centrally within the greater southern California megalopolis, just miles from the Pacific Ocean, we aspire to address grand challenges related to high-performance, low-power, scalable, secure and evolvable hardware, software and cyber-physical systems, and to prepare our graduates to be leaders in these fields. We seek outstanding candidates who hold a doctorate in computer engineering, computer science or a closely related field, and preference will be given to candidates who have innovative ideas for lecture and laboratory instruction. Postdoctoral experience and a proven teaching record at the university level are highly desirable. Relevant teaching and research experience includes peer-reviewed publications of creative work and a passion for engineering education that motivates high-quality educational experiences in laboratory, lecture and field settings. We also seek candidates skilled at coordination with regional partners in industry, government and resource agencies to enhance department programs, e.g., through internship programs and off-campus learning opportunities. The department benefits from the active participation of many engineering professionals through its EECS Affiliates program and its research activities. Grant writing in support of innovative instructional initiatives and modernization of educational facilities, while not required, will add to the strength of this position.

Applications should be submitted electronically. Instructions can be found at The position will remain open until filled.
