Lecturer/Assistant/Associate/Full Teaching Professor Professional Masters programs including the Align MS in CS, San Jose/San Francisco, CA
We are seeking faculty at both of our California campuses to teach an established cohort of students in Silicon Valley and a first cohort of Align students in January 2019 in San Francisco. The Silicon Valley campus is embedded at a widely respected industry partner, Integrated Device Technology, in San Jose, while the San Francisco campus will launch in the heart of the city. San Franciscos first cohort of Align students will be small, but will quickly scale to the level of Northeasterns established, robust west coast locations. Note that classes are given in the evening in San Francisco (day and evening in Silicon Valley) and are offered year round.

About the Align Program: Aligns mission is to close Americas tech diversity gap. To do so, we are reinventing Computer Science post-graduate education by scaling an innovative Experiential Masters in Computer Science for Non-Computer Science Majors. Scaling Align is a primary initiative ofNortheastern Universitys Khoury College of Computer Sciences.
Women represent more than 50% of all bachelors degree recipients but only 18% of CS graduates. Similarly, underrepresented minorities represent 25% of all bachelors degree recipients but just 10% of CS graduates. By closing these gaps, we will not only address a major economic issue, but also a profound issue of social equity and inclusion.

The Align MS in CS program differs from typical MS in CS programs in several key ways. It is:
• Designed for students who did not earn an undergraduate degree in CS
• Coupled with Northeasterns famous co-op program to provide a paid 6-8 month work experience in one of the colleges network of 500+ corporate partners
• Taught at night year-round so students can keep up with other commitments and finish in 2.5 years
• Offered locally at tech hubs across the country: Boston, Charlotte, San Francisco (opened in January 2019), Seattle, and Silicon Valley.
Our 5 year pilot to date has already demonstrated a graduation rate of 91%, with 100% employment and average salaries exceeding $100,000. Unlike code academies, our graduates are prepared for tech leadership career paths. Unlike undergraduate programs, the program takes only 2.5 years to complete. Most importantly,more than half of our graduates will be women and more than 25% will be underrepresented minorities.It is the ideal onramp for bringing a diversity of race, gender and thought to Americas tech workforce.Across all campuses we currently have 560 students in the Align MS in CS.
