The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at St. Mary’s College of Maryland is accepting applications for two one-year appointments as Visiting Assistant Professors of Computer Science, beginning August 2021.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or related field and be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching. Applicants with an MS in computer science and teaching experience may apply but will be considered Visiting Instructors of Computer Science. Applicants with expertise in data science, graphics, or theoretical computer science subfields are especially encouraged to apply. An interest in attracting and retaining students from underrepresented groups is desirable. Teaching responsibilities will include lower-level required courses as well as upper-level electives. All faculty at St. Mary’s are expected to contribute to the college‐wide core curriculum as well as to their departmental curriculum. The successful candidate must produce the necessary documentation to legally work in the U.S. upon hire. 

Non-­sectarian since its founding, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located in St. Mary's City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., has been designated as Maryland's public honors college.  With selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.

St. Mary’s College (www.smcm.edu) embodies diversity and inclusion in its mission. We create an environment that recognizes the value of individual and group differences and we encourage inquiries from applicants who will contribute to our cultural and ethnic diversity. Application materials should include a cover letter in which candidate addresses how their teaching will contribute to an inclusive classroom, curriculum vitae (including e-mail address), statement of teaching philosophy, statement of research interests, evidence of teaching effectiveness (if available), and three confidential letters of recommendation. Applicants can request confidential letters through their Interfolio Dossier account, and may be uploaded for free by the letter writer directly to our Interfolio-hosted account for committee review. Applications are being accepted online at: apply.interfolio.com/84914.  Questions may be directed to Dr. Alan Jamieson, Department Chair, at acjamieson@smcm.edu.

Review of applications will begin on March 19th and continue until the positions are filled. Employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check. St. Mary’s College of Maryland is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
