The Khoury College of Computer Sciences invites applications for positions at the rank of Associate Teaching Professor or Teaching Professor and Director of Computing Programs at Northeastern’s Roux Institute, located in Portland, Maine. The position would be responsible for deployment and oversight of a variety of Computer Science and Data Science programming, both in the degree and certificate space, as well as in non-degree programming, particularly in collaboration with Roux Institute Partners.
Northeastern’s Roux Institute is designed as an engine of innovation, talent, and economic growth in Portland, the state of Maine, and the region. Partnership is what sets our education and research model apart. With leading companies at the table from day one, we’re together creating an agile workforce prepared to thrive in a competitive landscape powered by artificial intelligence, and an environment for innovation in the life sciences and other high-growth sectors.
Khoury College currently offers the Master of Science in Computer Science, and the Master of Science in Data Science program is jointly offered by the College of Engineering. Both of these programs can be pursued by students with undergraduate degrees outside of computing through Align, Northeastern’s most innovative and mission driven program (https://www.khoury.northeastern.edu/information-for-overview/prospective-align-pillar/).
Through its commitment to Align, Khoury College aims to close America’s tech diversity gap. The ideal candidate will be able to combine strong leadership skills, demonstrated administrative experience, an entrepreneurial spirit, and commitment to increasing diversity in computer science to create a strategic vision for growth of programs in the region.
In addition to this programming, the Director will be engaged in the development and deployment of programming emerging from our Institute for Experiential Artificial Intelligence, a global University Institute dedicated to building talent and undertaking research involving human-in-the-loop AI.
Finally, the Roux Institute is developing and deploying customized embedded and experiential learning experiences with its 65+ corporate partners. The Director will therefore have substantial responsibility for driving the development of such programming through learning discovery conversations and collaborative development work with faculty and industry leaders.
