The Howard University Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science invites applications for three full-time career status eligible computer science lecturer positions with an anticipated start in the fall semester of the 2022-2023 academic year. To complement the expertise of current faculty, address areas of strong interest to students, and enhance collaboration opportunities with local industries, the department is particularly interested in candidates with specializations in artificial intelligence, data science, software engineering, programming languages (e.g., C/C++, Python, Java), visualization (XR), and human-centered computing. Knowledge of project management, operating systems, computer networks, and databases is a plus. Strong candidates in multi-disciplinary or emerging areas of computing are also encouraged to apply.
Howard University, a culturally diverse, comprehensive, research-intensive, and historically Black private university, offers an educational experience of exceptional quality at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels to students of high academic standing and potential. We provide unique educational and research opportunities that impact and foster the advancement of Black and other underserved communities. The department seeks candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community at Howard University. The ideal candidate is expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in her/his area of specialization, as well as courses of a fundamental/core nature, fulfilling all responsibilities related to those courses, to include actively engaging students from diverse backgrounds. We especially encourage applicants whose goals and professional or life experiences enrich the department and who can serve as a role model to a diverse student population. Candidates must have English language proficiency and should be familiar with technology-infused academic environments. Industry experience is desirable but not required.
Applicants must hold a computer science or related doctorate degree, and have a strong commitment and ability to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Application packages should be submitted electronically to EECS@Howard.edu and include a cover letter, comprehensive resume or curriculum vitae, statement of teaching interests and philosophy, diversity and inclusion statement, and the full names and contact information (postal address, phone number, and email address) of at least three professional references. Candidates must also provide a statement describing their commitments and capacities to contribute to Howard’s institutional mission of diversity, inclusion, and equity via their work.
