Despite their research-intensive PhDs, many graduates find academic happiness with primarily-undergraduate institutions because of the compelling balance they offer between teaching and research. But the pathways to these positions is often not clear (how do I find these jobs?), and often requires insider knowledge of a landscape that is invisible to PhD students. This listing is meant to help navigate that muddy water. See archived listings from previous years.
This document does not contain most CS faculty positions. It’s specifically intended for people who want to invest in teaching/mentorship with undergraduate students while still staying active in their scholarship. See our Resources page for insight into the ways in which PUIs might differ in their interviewing processes and values.
Criteria: the positions on this page should be…
- accessible to those with a Ph.D. in CS (or a closely related field)
- permanent positions (mostly likely tenure-track) why?
- universities that identify as primarily-undergraduate institutions why?
- institutions that highly value teaching, but also secure time and financial resources for faculty to remain engaged with research. what does this mean?
