The position will primarily involve (i) working with the Curriculum Committee in the development of new curriculum and teaching materials that will incorporate the modern practice of software development into courses; (ii) teaching undergraduate and graduate; and (iii) participating in other Faculty administration and student affairs, such as the Masters of Applied Computer Science Committee, Curriculum Committee, and student advising.

The successful candidate to this position must meet the following requirements:
• A graduate degree in Computer Science (or related field), with at least 5 years of experience in professional software development is preferred; however, a Bachelor degree in Computer Science (or related field), combined with at least 10 years of experience including a track record of significant accomplishments in professional software development would be considered equivalent;

Additional desirable qualifications are as follows:
• Demonstrated professional experience as a senior software engineer across a range of industries

• Experience with current trends in industry practices and platforms substantiated by industry experience or applied research
• Recent experience in the ICT industry, particularly with large software projects and modern software development tools

Although the instructor is not expected to conduct research, the successful candidate will have a well-defined area of interest in CS in which they will remain current and be able to teach senior-level and graduate courses.

Eligible candidates are encouraged to apply for this position with a package including a (i) C.V. or resume; (ii) cover letter; (iii) the addresses and emails of three references; and (iv) a teaching dossier or project portfolio, if applicable.
