The newly appointed Assistant Professors will join the Computer Science Department of CWU at a critical time in CWU's and the department's history, with the legislature providing funding for the expansion of the CWU Computer Science program. The number of Computer Science job openings is three times the number of graduates and post-graduates of the discipline in the State of Washington and the starting salaries are among the highest in the sector. The department also anticipates benefiting from additional state legislative support and funding available to Computer Science programs in higher education interested in developing an endorsement for K-12 teachers. These funding/growth opportunities, the high employability and starting salaries of graduates and postgraduates, the upcoming move of the Computer Science Department into a state of the art new building, and the ongoing collaborative options with major industries in the Seattle high-tech area make this an especially exciting time to be a part of the CWU Computer Science department. Furthermore, the master's program in Computational Science is the first of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, attracting both American and international students in an interdisciplinary, multicultural research and teaching environment.

Job Duties: Assistant Professors are expected to develop strong student advising, teaching, research, public service and academic programs within their departments. Assistant Professors are responsible to their department chair in matters of teaching assignments, scholarship and service. The Assistant Professors will teach an appropriate workload of both general computer science courses and courses within their area of expertise, as determined under the provision of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
