Multiple Open-Rank, Term Faculty Positions

The George Mason University Department of Computer Science, within the College of Engineering and Computing (CEC), invites applications for multiple, renewable-term, non-tenure-track teaching faculty positions at all levels beginning Fall 2023. George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.

Candidates who are in a dual-career situation may be able to take advantage of the university’s support for dual-career recruitment.


Successful candidates will be expected to teach primarily at the undergraduate level; advise undergraduate students; participate in the department’s educational mission; and embrace and help advance the University’s strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Qualified candidates may also have the opportunity to teach at the graduate level. The Department is currently based on Mason’s Fairfax campus, but plans are underway to expand the Department’s presence at the Mason Square campus in Arlington, where there will be additional opportunities for teaching.

Required Qualifications:

Applicants for Term Assistant Professor positions must have received a PhD in Computer Science or a related field by the start date of the position. Senior applicants with a record of outstanding teaching may be considered for higher ranks. Applicants who have received an MS in Computer Science or a related field by the start date of the position will be considered for Term Instructor positions. Candidates may also be considered who hold a degree in some other field but have significant experience teaching computer science. All applicants should possess a strong commitment to and demonstrated excellence in teaching.

Preferred Qualifications:

While applicants in all areas of computer science will be given serious consideration, we are particularly interested in candidates in the areas of computer science education, software engineering, programming languages, databases, security, ethics, and data analytics. Administrative and/or managerial experience is a plus. The Department and the College place high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.

About the Department:

The Department of Computer Science has 21 teaching-track faculty and 57 tenured and tenure-track faculty with wide-ranging research interests, and strong research groups in cybersecurity, systems and networks, machine learning and data mining, artificial intelligence, robotics, visual computing, theory, databases, bioinformatics, HCI, and software engineering. The department has seen a substantial increase in computer science majors as enrollment has grown from 550 undergraduates in 2012 to over 2,200 today. The department has nearly 200 PhD students and over 950 Masters students enrolled in four MS programs.
