Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Davidson College

Tenure-track appointment in computer science at the assistant professor level beginning August 1, 2014.

We seek a faculty member with broad teaching and research interests who will support and enhance the computer science curriculum at all levels, and who can collaborate with colleagues and students across disciplinary lines in a liberal arts environment. Excellence in classroom teaching and an active research program in which undergraduate students can participate are essential. The ideal candidate will have an aptitude for and interest in helping guide the expansion of our existing computer science program into a major. The teaching load is four courses in the first year, and five courses per year thereafter.

Davidson faculty are expected to advise students and participate in departmental and college-wide initiatives, including committee service.  

Undergraduate teaching experience is strongly preferred. Davidson is strongly committed to excellence and cultural diversity, and welcomes applications from women, members of minority groups, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the college's mission. Candidates with a demonstrated interest in increasing the diversity of the student body in STEM disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.  

The following materials are required: a cover letter addressing professional interests and aspirations pertaining to research and teaching; a research statement, including ideas for involving undergraduates; an evidence-based teaching statement; a curriculum vitae; and graduate transcripts. A completed application also requires 3 letters of reference, of which at least one must specifically address the applicant's teaching. References may either submit letters online (submission instructions will be sent to email addresses the applicant provides) or mail them to Prof. Laurie Heyer, Chair, Department of Mathematics, Davidson College, Box 7129, Davidson, NC 28035-7129. Applications received by November 15, 2013, will receive fullest consideration.
