The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Albion College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Computer Science at the assistant professor level to begin August 2018.  We seek applicants who have a demonstrated willingness and potential for excellence in teaching computer science to a diverse student body at the introductory and advanced undergraduate level. Albion’s teaching load is three units per semester.  Individuals with an active research agenda are sought, especially those with a strong interest in working with undergraduates.  The successful candidate will receive a competitive compensation package including startup funds.  An advanced degree in any area of computer science or related field is required.

The department currently offers a computer science minor, but we expect a new hire would help shape the curriculum by modifying existing courses and developing new courses leading to rebooting a major in computer science that is consistent with national curriculum models.  A demonstrated ability to use innovative pedagogies is desirable.

We have a vibrant departmental culture with a weekly colloquium series and other activities for student and faculty engagement. The department is housed in the Science Complex, a U.S. Green Building Council LEED Silver facility, with modern technology enhanced classrooms including a departmental computer lab.


  • PhD in computer science or related field completed by August 2018 preferred
  • ABD in computer science or related field will be considered

Application Process:

Interested candidates should submit an online application including a letter of application, current CV, copy of graduate transcripts, evidence of teaching excellence (such as a statement of teaching philosophy, sample syllabi, other course material, or course evaluations), a research statement, and three letters of reference through Interfolio (

Full consideration will be given to candidates who have completed applications by October 23, 2017, with other applications reviewed until the position is filled.
