  • Professor of Practice/Lecturer - Software Engineering

    Ithaca (Main Campus)
    Posted:

    Cornell’s Systems Engineering Program, possibly cooperating with other Cornell departments (e.g., Cornell Computer Science) invites applications for a position to develop and teach courses in Systems Engineering for both on-campus students and professional distance-learning students. The candidate will also take an important role in growing relationships with industry, especially as it pertains to student projects. This is a non-tenure track position in the Systems Engineering program at the Ithaca campus, renewable every three to five years. The Systems Engineering Program trains students with the skills needed to be program managers, researchers, and designers for the next generation of complex, large-scale systems.

    We seek a faculty member to help lead our systems and systems engineering education efforts.  We seek candidates with significant work experience in systems engineering that can use that experience to support the educational mission of the program. Our particular interests include, but are not limited to, systems-related software engineering topics, human-systems interactions, and sociotechnical systems design and enterprise.  Applicants should have a strong background in systems, some relevant background and experience, must exhibit strong promise for excellence in developing courses and in teaching, and possibly an interest in carrying out research in systems-related areas leading to peer-reviewed conference presentations and publications.  The person should have an advanced degree in a related field (Doctorate preferred). Depending on qualifications, we can hire at the rank of Professor of Practice, Senior Lecturer or Lecturer. Although this is intended to be a full-time position, alternative arrangements may be considered.

    Applicants should submit a résumé or curriculum vitae, a teaching statement, and contact information for at least three references. Optionally a candidate can include a research statement and/or a proposed class syllabus. Applications should be submitted online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11249. We will begin reviewing applications immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

    The Systems Engineering Program, and all programs in the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who can contribute to a welcoming climate for students of all races and genders. Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage since Cornell’s founding in 1865. Cornell University seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual career searches.
