Department of Computer Science
Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing


The Department of Computer Science in the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing invites applications and nominations for the position of Visiting Instructor for the 2021-2022 academic year. The home campus for this position will be the Statesboro campus, although teaching on other campuses may be required.

Georgia Southern University is a distinctive combination of Southern charm and uncompromising academics. We are a Carnegie Doctoral/R2 institution serving about 26,500 students through nine colleges on three beautiful oak-lined campuses in Statesboro, Savannah, Hinesville, and a growing online program. Throughout its degree offerings at the associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels, Georgia Southern cultivates community collaboration, world-class scholarship and hands-on learning opportunities.

Georgia Southern University was founded in 1906 as a school for teaching modern agricultural production techniques and homemaking skills to rural school children. Its Savannah campus was established in 1935 as Armstrong Junior College for local youth who could not afford to attend college away from home. The Liberty Center in Hinesville was established in 1998 to serve the military and their families at nearby Fort Stewart, the largest military base east of the Mississippi. All three locations came together in 2018 when Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University consolidated. The "new" Georgia Southern University preserves a passion for serving its neighbors while preparing students for lifelong service as scholars, leaders, and responsible stewards of their communities.

Believing that diversity, equity, and inclusion contribute to excellence in the workplace and to the quality of the University's academic environment, Georgia Southern University is committed to recruiting and retaining diverse faculty and staff to support, promote, and serve a diverse student body and promote Inclusive Excellence. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups, whose work furthers the institution's Inclusive Excellence goals and who bring to campus varied life experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.

Within this setting, Georgia Southern University's Department of Computer Science offers an on-campus Bachelor of Science degree (accredited by CAC of ABET) with a major in Computer Science and a hybrid-format Master of Science degree (ranked #1 MS-CS program in the country by Intelligent.com) that students can complete entirely online. The BS program has specializations leading to certifications in multiple domains, including Network and Computer Security, Game Programming, Software Engineering, and Broadband and Mobile Systems. The department has strong relationships with many local companies. A senior capstone project sponsored by these companies enhances our students' educational experiences and provides faculty with ongoing opportunities for interaction with industry.
