Job Description

Tenure-Track Assistant Professor—Search #67703
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 two assistant professor positions in Computer Science. The home campus for these positions will be the Statesboro campus, but the positions will have oversight responsibilities for faculty and instructional activities on the other campuses as well.

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 via 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.

Within this setting, Georgia Southern University's Department of Computer Science offers an on-campus Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with a major in Computer Science and a hybrid-format Master of Science degree with a major in Computer Science. 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. Georgia Southern's BS in Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET.
