Faculty & Staff Positions

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 School of Universal Computing, Construction, and Engineering Education (SUCCEED).  SUCCEED is part of FIU's College of Engineering and Computing and collaborates closely with the university STEM Transformation Institute (a community of discipline-based education researchers and innovators). The School houses two-degree programs: a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Engineering, and a Ph.D. in Engineering and Computing Education. Our Ph.D. is the first engineering and computing education doctoral degree at a minority-serving institution (MSI).

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 SUCCEED work collaboratively with faculty in the STEM Institute and its twenty-seven member Discipline-based Education Research (DBER) faculty and as appropriate with other departments in the College (e.g., Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, etc.) to conduct innovative funded education research in their discipline and advance the transformation of undergraduate engineering and computer science education.

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 courses in and outside of SUCCEED degree programs, and provide service to the School and College. Successful candidates will also have demonstrated a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
