The Institute for Software Research (ISR) in the School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for multiple teaching-track positions in software engineering. These are career-oriented, renewable appointments with an initial appointment of three years. Initial teaching-track appointments are typically at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor, with the possibility of appointment to the rank of Associate Teaching Professor based on applicable experience. These ranks are not tenured, but they do provide substantial opportunities for professional growth and long-term contributions to software engineering education at Carnegie Mellon University.

One position will be primarily assigned to support our Masters of Software Engineering (MSE) program; the other position will broadly support our computer science and software engineering educational programs. Both positions provide opportunities to engage in teaching at the undergraduate and Masters level. For the MSE position we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in DevOps and continuous integration, quality assurance, and scalable systems.

Applicants with expertise in all areas of software engineering, however, will be considered for both positions.

About the Institute for Software Research


ISR is an academic department dedicated to the study of software engineering and societal computing, with two Ph.D. programs and approximately forty faculty members. ISR is one of seven departments within SCS, which has over 200 tenure-track, research, and teaching faculty with expertise spanning traditional computer science, human computer interaction, language technology, machine learning, computational biology, software engineering, and robotics. SCS offers a highly collaborative and uniquely interdisciplinary environment that promotes innovation and entrepreneurship in both teaching and research.



We seek candidates with significant experience in a software engineering related position, familiarity with modern software engineering practices, and an aptitude for teaching and engaging students. We especially invite candidates with a demonstrated track record in mentoring and engaging members of groups traditionally underrepresented in software engineering and computer science. Faculty candidates are expected to have an advanced degree (M.S. or higher) in computer science, software engineering, or a related field.
