Teaching Faculty Search


The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University invites applications for an anticipated teaching-track position beginning in January 2014. This is a career-oriented, renewable appointment that is responsible for, and committed to, developing and delivering excellent courses at all levels in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Particular emphasis is on courses in programming, software engineering, networks, embedded systems, microprocessors, computers, algorithms, circuits and electronics, but there will be opportunities to contribute in other areas.

Applicants for the position must have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related field, and have demonstrated excellence in teaching applicable courses. This position is a non-tenure track with appointment typically at the rank of Instructor, Associate Professor of Practice or Full Professor of Practice. Initial appointments are for two or three years, and the position is renewable. There is a pathway for promotion from lower ranks depending on performance and for extended periods of time.

Salary will be provided for the 9-month academic year. Possibilities of support in the summer include summer classes and various outreach programs. Teaching-track faculty are also welcome to pursue research interests and seek funding for such programs.

Teaching-track faculty in the Electrical & Computer Engineering department are expected to teach multiple courses per year (typically at least four) with multiple sections of the same course counting toward that total. Additional responsibilities include student advising, curriculum development, course development, supervising undergraduate and graduate course staff. A reduced teaching load may be granted depending on the extent of other duties. These positions come with full benefits.
