Ongoing Search for Part-Time Lecturers

The Department of Computer Science (CS) at Tufts University conducts an ongoing search for qualified part-time lecturers. We invite applications from individuals who are capable and interested in teaching one or more courses either currently offered by CS or new courses that the applicant thinks CS might wish to offer. This includes local industry experts who are interested in teaching advanced evening classes in cutting-edge new areas.

The CS department has grown significantly in the past decade in number of faculty and students, graduating over 125 majors annually. Located in the Boston area, the department benefits from outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, collaborative faculty, and cross-disciplinary research opportunities. Tufts University is one of the smallest universities ranked as a Research 1 university, and it offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere, coupled with the intellectual and technological resources of a major research university. Tufts University supports and encourages a culture of interdisciplinary research and there are numerous such opportunities within the School of Engineering, the School of Arts and Sciences, and through graduate and professional schools.


Prior teaching experience and a graduate degree are preferred but not required.
