Posted: 03/02/17 | SHARE:


The Computer Science Department at University at Albany offers Bachelor's and Master's degrees, a combined BS/MS, a computer science minor, and a doctoral program that prepares students for research careers as a creative scholar or industrial scientist.  Professors of Practice and Lecturers are integral to the Department's teaching mission, which now includes a dual degree program just launched in Computer Science with Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications in the beautiful Yangtze River Valley of China. Successful applicants will teach in the program core both at UAlbany and, every second or third semester, at Chongqing with additional compensation and all expenses covered. Courses at Chongqing may be from 6 to 12 weeks and may be taught entirely in the classroom, entirely online, or in some combination. All instruction in China will be in English and will include substantial TA support. A variety of courses must be covered including, but not limited to, programming and data structures, software engineering, programming languages, compiler design, operating systems, databases, data analytics, discrete math, and related topics. Professors of Practice and Lecturers are expected to commit to excellence in teaching, and to constant review and improvement of the pedagogy they use to engage and support student learning. Responsibilities are predominantly teaching (base three-four teaching load), combined with university and department-level service. Professors of Practice may play an active role in ongoing program and course development.
