Multiple Tenure Track or Tenured Faculty in Computer Science or Engineering Education

Florida International University (FIU) invites applications and nominations for open-rank faculty in the newly formed school dedicated to engineering and computing education.  This new unit (https://succeed.fiu.edu/), which is part of FIU's College of Engineering and Computing and collaborates closely with the university’s STEM Transformation Institute, has created the first engineering and computing education program at a minority-serving institution. The School houses two-degree programs: a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Engineering, and a Ph.D. in Engineering and Computing Education.

Florida International University (FIU) is the fourth-largest public university in the United States and is a majority-minority R1 research university.  FIU has a vibrant STEM education research group, and there are also ample education research opportunities afforded in Dade and Broward counties which host the nation's largest and 4th largest state colleges and two of the largest public school districts.

Faculty in the new school will work collaboratively with faculty in the STEM Institute, and as appropriate with other departments in the College (e.g., Mechanical Engineering, Electrical, and Computer Engineering, etc.) to conduct innovative education research in their discipline and advance the transformation of the undergraduate engineering and computer science education. The Institute conducts multidisciplinary research across the Colleges of Arts, Sciences, & Education and Engineering & Computing, as well as stakeholders throughout the K-20 spectrum, to support its mission. FIU’s STEM Transformation Institute is an FIU preeminent program that houses 14 Discipline-based Education Researcher (DBER) faculty in 7 departments across the institution and has attracted over $30M in external funds over the past 4 years. The Institute envisions FIU as a laboratory for the future of STEM, as FIU is an urban public research institution located in Miami, Florida. FIU is the fourth-largest university in the nation, with 57,000 students, 80% of which are from historically underrepresented groups. FIU is a Carnegie-designated R1, Highest Research Activity, university.

Successful candidates will be expected to establish/maintain a strong research program (external funding, peer-reviewed scholarly work, national/international collaborations, mentoring of undergraduate/graduate researchers), teach/design transformative STEM courses in their discipline, and provide service to their college in order to contribute to the STEM Institute’s mission in these domains.

We are seeking faculty at all levels as we continue to grow our community. More information and links to the FIU job site containing the official position description and application: https://facultycareers.fiu.edu/?posting=519932. Please feel free to contact Laird Kramer (lkramer@fiu.edu) or Mark Weiss (weiss@fiu.edu) if you have an interest, and/or to spread the word to colleagues in other engineering education disciplines.
