Senior Software Engineering Faculty Position

We are seeking a senior experienced person to fill a faculty position for our growing software engineering program with a candidate who has both industrial experience and traditional academic credentials. As a senior faculty member, the faculty member will play key roles in expanding our software engineering research program, in teaching, in recruiting, and in overall campus leadership. Familiarity with software development practices used in Silicon Valley is a significant advantage. Rank and compensation will be commensurate with experience.

Our MS programs in software engineering and software management currently enroll more than 150 students, both full-time and part-time, many of whom are currently employed at top Silicon Valley companies. These MS programs are project-based and follow a learning-by-doing approach, with no formal exams and infrequent lectures. Both daytime and evening classes are typically small. Faculty members work directly as advisors to student project teams on their deliverables, teaching knowledge and skills on a just-in-time basis.

Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley has been steadily increasing its research activities, emphasizing mobility, networking, and security. We are looking to build our research capabilities in areas such as agile methods, mobile and embedded system development, and cloud computing. The ideal candidate for this position will have sufficient experience to justify an appointment to a senior faculty position. We will give strong consideration to candidates who have spent most of their professional career in industry, and are now seeking an academic position. For this position, relevant industry experience is highly desirable.

Please provide us with your curriculum vitae, a statement about your practical experience, and letters from five references, including both industrial and academic references.

Minimum Qualifications
Education: PhD in Computer Science or related discipline.
Significant industrial experience and demonstrated ability to do Software Engineering research.
Excellent written and spoken communication skills.
