Position Details

The University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) recently created a new School of Computing and Information (SCI) to be the nexus of computing and information at Pitt. SCI has many openings for non-tenure track positions that offer careers and paths for advancement in teaching across a spectrum of areas, which includes rethinking curricula to reflect emerging concepts, conducting research, and developing activities for the deep entwinement of new skills in computing and information into other disciplines. Such programs are essential to train polymaths who understand and apply the abstractions that unite disciplines. As SCI transitions to a four-year school and creates new undergraduate and graduate degree programs, individuals filling these openings will have the chance to develop and teach curricula in many areas, including computer science, information science, information culture, and data stewardship. In addition, we are seeking individuals with competencies and experience in cybersecurity for an anticipated new institute for professional education. SCI’s leadership, faculty, and staff value the importance of and need for diversity and inclusion within computing and information. Candidates from underrepresented populations, as well as those experienced with diverse students and commitments to inclusion are especially encouraged to apply for these openings.
