Brooklyn College of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for a Lecturer (Doctoral Schedule) in the Department of Computer and Information Science (CIS) with a starting date in August 2022. Lecturers are eligible for a certificate of continuous employment (CCE) upon the sixth reappointment in the title that follows five years of continuous service in the title.


The successful candidate will have excellent teaching skills and will be required to teach both introductory programming courses and a variety of new and existing advanced courses in areas relevant to the NYC tech industry, especially data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The individuals selected will also help develop courses and curricula for the department.


Our department has 24 fulltime faculty, over 900 undergraduate majors, over 100 Master's students and over 20 affiliated doctoral students of the CUNY Graduate Center.


Brooklyn College serves students from as many as 150 countries who speak over 100 languages and dialects and thus constitutes a vibrant microcosm of the rich diversity and energy that characterize the borough of Brooklyn and the greater New York metropolis. The college’s mission features “a special commitment to educate immigrant and first-generation college students from the diverse communities that make up our city and state.” The college ethos is strongly invested in the educational and eventual career success of a population that encompasses a vast multiplicity of nationalities, ethnicities, religions, cultures and languages. We are committed to fostering a spirit of camaraderie and shared ideals across the entire spectrum of our varied constituency. By accessing a first-class and affordable college education in an inclusive and nurturing intellectual milieu, our students acquire the skills, confidence, and global mindedness that allow them to compete and thrive in a rapidly changing, unpredictable marketplace of ideas that is increasingly mindless of borders and spans the gamut of cultures and vernaculars.


To this end, the college seeks faculty who are eager to engage with the diversity of our student body and have a demonstrated commitment to inclusion and heterogeneity through teaching, research and/or service. We seek to recruit and retain faculty from historically underrepresented groups who reflect the mosaic of our student population. Successful candidates will bring their unique creativity, sensitivity, insights and perspectives to a community that welcomes innovation in scholarship and teaching. Together we will model the finest that a public urban liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies

college can be for the present and future.


The successful candidate will be part of a University and College wide cohort of faculty lecturers who engage actively with one another in pedagogical development toward achieving excellence in innovative and student-centered teaching.  A commitment to teaching effectiveness and student engagement through advisement, regular office hours, and other service activities are required.
