Ph.D. preferred, Master’s degree in related field required. Experience in teaching and scholarship is desired. Trinity seeks faculty who are committed Christians able to articulate the relationship between their discipline, the vocational preparation of their students, and a vision for human flourishing that emerges from the Christian faith, as expressed through the Reformed theological tradition. Faculty members are also dedicated to personal involvement with students outside the classroom, including advising, social interaction, and informal academic and cultural settings, as well as with professionals who can complement the Trinity experience. Trinity particularly welcomes applications from candidates who have professional or personal narratives that reflect diverse perspectives, as well as those who have engagement with issues relevant for preparing students to work and live with intercultural competence and compassion.
Primary responsibilities include teaching computer science and mathematics courses that serve the department and college needs and align with the area of expertise of the successful candidate. Desirable areas of expertise include complexity theory, programming languages, emerging technology, and applied mathematics, though generalists are also encouraged to apply. All faculty participate at Trinity in faculty governance and in student advising, and are expected to pursue a healthy scholarly and research agenda. In their first year, new faculty participate in a year-long formation program that begins with a three-day institute during the second week of August.
