Aurora University seeks talented faculty who are passionate about teaching and learning. As a private institution, Aurora University expects faculty to be involved in the lives of students through mentoring, student support, enrollment initiatives, and other activities related to the college experience. To facilitate this highly interactive faculty/student relationship, the typical teaching load is three 4 credit-hour courses per semester and student advising is supported by professional staff. Evidence of successful teaching, or a strong potential for successful teaching, is required for all positions. Undergraduate faculty share in the delivery of the general education program, most often by teaching within the university’s interdisciplinary core.

The Department of Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science invites applications for a tenure or clinical track assistant professor of computer science. The successful candidate is expected to have a doctorate in computer science or software engineering with a background in risk assessment/validation of software/computer engineering and a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring of students. Successful candidates will teach undergraduate courses in the Computer Science program and the Software Engineering program.

All faculty positions offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, life, long term disability, a 403(b) retirement plan through TIAA, and tuition remission included for benefit-eligible positions.

Applications must include a letter of intent including description of education, certifications held, and all relevant experience, current curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references including phone numbers (candidates will be notified prior to references being contacted).
