Assistant Professor - Big Data/Cyber Security
BIG DATA/CYBERSECURITY: The Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August 2017, pending final administrative approval. We seek candidates with expertise in Big Data (Informatics) and Cyber-Security, with preference given to those with current research agendas that have the potential to add to the undergraduate Computer Science major. Minimum qualifications include PhD in Computer Science, or related field, by the time of the appointment. Specific teaching assignments will include Big Data / Informatics, Web Development, Project Management, Information Systems, additional Computer Science courses as the CISC department implements changes in the Computer Science major, and possibly general education courses, including First Year Seminars. Teaching load will average 20 semester credit hours or their equivalent per academic year, and all faculty members teach during the College’s distinctive four-week January Term. The successful candidate must be committed to excellence and innovation in undergraduate teaching, active engagement in scholarly or creative activities, and working closely with students in a small college environment. Committee service and academic advising also are expected for tenure and promotion.
