Job Summary

The department is highly collaborative both within and outside the department.

Several faculty members are NSF funded and collaborate with institutions in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area.  

The University of San Francisco is located in the heart of one of the world’s most innovative and diverse cities, and is home to a vibrant academic community of students and faculty who achieve excellence in their fields. Its diverse student body enjoys direct access to faculty, small classes and outstanding opportunities in the city itself. USF is San Francisco’s first university, and its Jesuit Catholic mission helps ignite a student’s passion for social justice and a desire to “Change the World From Here.” For more information, visit http://www.usfca.edu. USF has been recognized as a top 20 entrepreneurial research university (Forbes 2015).

Job Responsibilities

The successful candidate will be expected to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, maintain an active research program that involves students, and perform service duties to the CS department and university. The standard teaching load for this position at USF is two 4-unit courses per semester with an additional third course every fourth semester (2-2-2-3 over two years).
