Position Details:

Randolph-Macon College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science to begin September 1, 2022.

 

Institutional Information:

Randolph-Macon College, founded in 1830, is a selective, primarily residential liberal arts college with an enrollment of 1500 students located in the northern suburbs of Richmond, Virginia. It is 90 miles south of Washington, DC and 15 miles north of Richmond. The College seeks employees committed to advancing inclusion and equity and to cultivating a community that welcomes all people, regardless of race, gender, disability, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or gender expression. Of special interest are candidates who can further the College’s efforts to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion.

 

The Computer Science Department is a growing, active, and energetic community of five tenured/tenure track faculty that currently supports over 100 majors and minors. The department houses one of the oldest computer science programs in the country and recently introduced a new major and minor in Cybersecurity. Both programs are rapidly expanding and continue to attract wide student interest. The department values high-quality teaching and individualized work with students and places a strong emphasis on the importance of effective communication throughout and beyond the college experience. 

 

Major/Essential Functions:

Randolph-Macon College faculty teach, advise, conduct research and engage in scholarship, and serve the college and department. Primary teaching responsibilities will include a wide range of courses from the introductory level to advanced core and elective courses in both Cybersecurity and Computer Science.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • The ability to teach a broad range of courses in the Cybersecurity major including introductory level computer science
  • The ability to maintain an active research area in Cybersecurity or Computer Science with the potential to include undergraduate students as active participants
  • Potential to engage and collaborate with undergraduate students and colleagues; and
  • Interest in being an active participant in the department's efforts to recruit, retain, and teach students from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented groups
