Department Computer Science Proposed Hiring Contract Type Tenure Track Non-Tenure Track End Date Appointment Percent 100% Months per Year 9 Months Job Summary

The Department of Computer Science at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor, beginning in the fall of 2022.

The Department of Computer Science, with eight faculty and over 200 majors, offers an ABET-accredited B.S. degree and a B.A. degree. It is part of Gonzaga University's School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), which also has ABET-accredited programs in electrical, computer, civil, and mechanical engineering, and engineering management. U.S. News and World Report ranked SEAS in the top 10% of the nation's engineering schools without a doctoral program. Computer science and STEM education are highly valued at Gonzaga. For example, the new $49.7 million Bollier Family Center, which will house Computer Science, will be commissioned in September 2021. Salaries are competitive and facilities for undergraduate teaching and research are excellent.

Gonzaga is part of a long tradition of Jesuit education, which for nearly five centuries has emphasized rigor, while never losing sight of the whole person. Gonzaga has recently been named a U.S. News and World Report National University, where it ranks 80th in the U.S.

Gonzaga is located on the Spokane River, a short walk from downtown Spokane and minutes by foot from Washington State University's Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine. Gonzaga has recently entered into a partnership with the University of Washington medical school, which now shares the Gonzaga campus. The presence of two medical schools within walking distance of the School of Engineering and Applied Science opens a rich set of collaborative research opportunities.

Spokane, with a population of 500,000 is located in the Inland Northwest, about five hours from Seattle and seven from Portland. The city has walkable neighborhoods, abundant parks, a downtown shopping district, and urban amenities typically found only in much larger cities. With mountains in every direction, large lakes in nearby Idaho and British Columbia, and rivers throughout the Northwest, Spokane is an ideal location for outdoor recreation. Cross-country and downhill skiing, hiking, kayaking, river rafting, and cycling are all easily available within the Inland Northwest.

The School of Engineering and Applied Science seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce that values diversity, equity and inclusion in all that they do, thus offering to our students a rich variety of expertise, perspectives, and ways of knowing and learning.
