The Department of Computer Science and Engineerig at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of assistant adjunct professors, associate adjunct professors, and adjunct professors. Adjunct faculty members are expected to engage in research or other creative activity, teaching, and university and public service.

The campus is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to diversity of scholarly activity and add additional dimension to the Baskin School of Engineering by complementing or augmenting our existing research strengths.

Current areas of excellence and research foci within the Computer Science and Engineering Department include algorithms, animation & visualization, architecture, artificial intelligence, assistive technology, computer science education, computer system design, database systems, digital design, embedded systems, entrepreneurship, graphics, information retrieval (or data mining), information technology systems design, knowledge management, machine learning, mobile and cloud computing, networks, operations research, operating systems, product development, programming languages, security, sensor technology, services engineering, software engineering, and storage systems.

UC Santa Cruz is the University of California campus nearest to Silicon Valley and maintains close ties with local industry in the fields of computer science/engineering, and technology management. The campus is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching, and/or service.
