Detailed Job Description

Assistant Professor of Software or Computer Engineering

The Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering at the University of San Diego (USD) invites applications for tenure track faculty positions in software engineering or computer engineering with preference for assistant professor level positions. We are looking for outstanding candidates from all areas of software engineering and computer engineering, including those with industry experience.

USD provides a high quality undergraduate education by emphasizing small classes and a high level of faculty-student interaction. The Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering has recently ranked among the top 15 programs at non-Ph.D. granting institutions by U.S. News and World Report. The school currently houses undergraduate degrees in general engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and industrial & systems engineering departments. We also anticipate launching an MS degree in Cyber security this year.

Software Engineering is housed within a General Engineering department and is a specialization therein. The goal of the Software Engineering focus is to straddle the computer engineering / computer science disciplines with an emphasis on programming, but with more computer architecture awareness than is typically the case in pure computer science programs. As a member of the General Engineering Faculty, the ability to step outside the pure computational sciences is also valued. A survey courses on Electrical Engineering principals is also part of the Software Engineering program and the ability to support such efforts is highly valuable.

The school recently received a multi-year NSF grant that has a goal of developing "Change Making" Engineers. The project addresses how an engineering education that integrates traditional technical skills, enhanced social awareness and an integrated professional spine produces connected learning that empowers graduates to improve society - by practicing engineering within the contexts of social justice, peace, humanitarian advancement, and sustainable practices. We encourage applicants that have backgrounds in these areas.

USD, an independent Catholic university, is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to achieving excellence, diversity and inclusion in its faculty, students and environment.

The successful candidates will:

• Hold a Ph.D. in software engineering, computer engineering, computer science, or a related discipline, and

• Have a demonstrated commitment to teaching and research, and mentoring undergraduates.
