Our close-knit team of ten faculty specializes in working with eager undergraduate students in small classes and one-on-one mentoring settings.  Candidates for the position must either have earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field or have made substantial progress toward completing their dissertation. An earned terminal degree will be required for continuation in the tenure-track position. Passionate teachers in all subdisciplines of computer science will be considered. Successful applicants will demonstrate an enthusiasm for teaching at the undergraduate level, the ability to teach a variety of computer science topics, an interest in involving undergraduates in research, and demonstrate dedication to effective teaching and high-impact learning in an inclusive environment that embraces diverse talents and backgrounds. The normal teaching load is three sections per semester in small classes.

Faculty are expected to engage in scholarly/professional development, perform service in support of the students, the program, and the institution, and be committed to the continuous enhancement of a diverse and inclusive curriculum in response to changing needs and expectations of our student body. Candidates must also have effective oral and written communication skills.
