John Jay is a federally designated Hispanic-serving institution, it is ranked third in the nation in Black student success, and it is a top ten institution for promoting student social mobility. John Jay is proud to serve a diverse and dynamic student body of 15,000 students that includes nearly fifty percent students who are first in their family to attend college as well as students who are immigrants, from low-income families, or from other historically underrepresented groups.

The College participates in the doctoral programs of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in traditional criminal justice-related fields of study as well as in a robust portfolio of liberal arts and sciences programs that highlight themes of justice across the arts, sciences, humanities, and social sciences.

The Mathematics & Computer Science Department of John Jay College of Criminal Justice invites applications for two full-time lecturer positions in Computer Science to begin spring semester 2022.

Candidates with expertise in digital forensics, computer security or applications of data science in security are of particular interest.


John Jay’s major in Computer Science and Information Security (CSIS) offers the computing, quantitative and analytical expertise that public and private organizations need to advance the practice of digital forensics and cybersecurity. The program provides the broad background in computing that is needed to thwart the abuse and misuse of computers, data networks, information systems and information infrastructures, in the environment of ever advancing digital technology. The courses in the CSIS major prepare students for direct entry into the profession as well as entry into graduate and professional programs that rely on computing and quantitative methods, especially in areas related to digital forensics and cybersecurity.

This position is part of John Jay’s participation in the City of New York’s CUNY 2x Tech program.

All CUNY 2x Tech faculty and staff members will play a critical role in ensuring that the college’s tech education is aligned with industry demand. The role will involve work with NYC-based industry partners and the NYC Tech Talent Pipeline to review curricula, provide feedback on students’ job-readiness, teach in the classroom, and ensure that overall tech education provided by the college is preparing students with the academic and career readiness skills they need to succeed.
