The University of California, San Diego Computer Science and Engineering Department seeks applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor (formal title Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment). Teaching Professors are faculty members with a stronger emphasis on teaching who also engage in education and/or disciplinary scholarship.
