Mercy University is a nonsectarian, nonprofit institution offering over 90 undergraduate and graduate programs, and serving more than 9000 students across four campuses in Westchester County and New York City. We are a federally-designated Hispanic-serving institution and our faculty are expert teachers dedicated to providing students with access to a transformative education though academic quality and robust student support. Mercy University is committed to building a talented and diverse faculty who welcome opportunities to engage with our students, incorporate inclusive pedagogical practices into their teaching, are committed to ensuring that all students succeed, and prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion goals. We encourage applications from women, individuals from minoritized backgrounds, and those who demonstrate the multicultural competence required to teach a diverse student body. Applicants for all five positions are required to apply via Mercy’s HR site (https://mercy.edu/about/human-resources/employement-mercy) by November 20, 2023 for full consideration.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences invites applications for three full-time positions in Computer Science and Cybersecurity.  For tenure-track positions, applicants should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Computer Information Systems, or a closely related discipline by the appointment date; for the multi-year contract position, candidates with advanced degrees in these fields will be considered.  Please refer to the individual job postings on our website for the specific details and requirements for each position.

Position 1:

Tenure-track position in Computer Science and Cybersecurity: Professional and/or teaching experience in computer networking, operating systems, wireless networks, and cybersecurity. Experience in leading students in national or regional cybersecurity defense/offense competitions is a plus.

Experience in leading students in national or regional cybersecurity defense/offense competitions is a plus.

Position 3:

Multiple-year Contract Position in Computer Science and Cybersecurity to help us create new courses in video game development and programming: Professional or teaching experience in C++, C#, JavaScript and Python, game engines, such as Unreal and Unity, and 2D and 3D digital animation such as Maya or Blender. Experience in developing for mobile and web platforms, or for applications outside of gaming such as VR is a plus.

For all three positions, we expect the successful candidates to teach undergraduate and graduate Computer Science and Cybersecurity classes in programming, database, computer systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning, or data security. These faculty will also be expected to teach at multiple campuses of Mercy University, based upon the needs of the department.

Examples of scholarship, including published work, and course curricula are also welcome.

The Department of Communication and the Arts seeks applications for an Assistant Professor with a specialization in Art History (4-4 teaching load). Primary responsibilities include teaching a two-semester Art History sequence for students in our Design and Animation BFA program and general education courses for students from across the university.

The candidate should be comfortable teaching courses that address the major art movements and styles throughout history, as well as the work and traditions of historically marginalized artists in the classroom. Candidates specializing in design history movements such as Art Deco, Modernism and Post Modernism and contemporary design, as well as those with knowledge in design principles, are also encouraged to apply. 

Candidates must demonstrate excellence in student-centered undergraduate teaching as well as scholarly achievement in their specialization of art/design history. Successful candidates will also be expected to engage in service at the department and school levels and possess a desire to contribute to the university’s General Education mission.

The Department of Humanities seeks applications for an Assistant Professor of First Year & Junior Seminars.

Responsibilities include teaching the two core general education seminars: a new First-Year Seminar focused on helping students make a successful transition to college, and Junior Seminar, where students forge connections across general education and major courses to meet their educational and professional goals. Our Seminars faculty include professors from a range of disciplines and we are eager to hear from candidates who are interested in teaching in a dynamic and interdisciplinary program focused on helping all students become successful college learners.

Qualifications: Ph.D.is preferred and an interdisciplinary background is encouraged.

Active service on college-wide communities and engagement with assessment efforts is also required.

The ideal candidate will have experience teaching first-year and first-generation college students and will bring to this position fluency in varied methods of student engagement, high-impact teaching practices, inclusive pedagogy, and assessment of learning outcomes. Candidates must be able to teach at multiple campuses: Dobbs Ferry, Bronx, Manhattan, or Online.

Applications should include a cover letter that addresses the applicant’s qualifications and their commitment to supporting students from diverse backgrounds in an equity-minded First-Year Seminar; curriculum vitae; and contact information for at least three professional references.
