The Department of Computer Science (http://cs.usc.edu) at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering (https://viterbischool.usc.edu/) seeks a candidate for a teaching position (Lecturer) to teach undergraduate and graduate courses. This is a full time, benefits eligible faculty position on the non-tenure track. The USC Viterbi School is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and welcomes applications from women, persons from underrepresented minority groups, veterans, and individuals with disabilities. We are interested in exceptional candidates at all levels.

Competitive candidates will have the training and experience necessary to teach effectively in a highly-ranked Computer Science department that advances undergraduate students through an accredited BS degree program and graduate students enrolled in MS and PhD programs. While we are interested in candidates with backgrounds in all areas of Computer Science, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in Algorithms, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Databases, Computer Games, Programming Languages, Networks/Systems, and Software Engineering. Relevant industry experience is valued for candidates interested in teaching games-related courses.

This is primarily a teaching position; all candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching. Lecturer will spend the majority of its time on teaching and teaching-related duties with reduced obligation for research and University service. Qualified candidates should have a doctoral degree in Computer Science (or equivalent) by the date of appointment. Salary and benefits are competitive. While we seek applications at the level of Lecturer, in exceptional cases, applicants with longer teaching experience may also be considered for a commensurate position (e.g., Senior Lecturer).
