The Computer Science Department invites applications for one tenure-track position and multiple visiting positions at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin Fall semester 2018.

For the tenure-track position, we are interested in applicants whose areas fit broadly into systems (including but not limited to operating systems, security, or high-performance computing) or programming languages. Priority will be given to complete applications received by November 17, 2017.

For the visiting position, strong applicants in any area will be considered. Priority will be given to complete applications received by February 2, 2018.

Applications for both positions will continue to be accepted after these dates until the positions are filled. The Computer Science Department currently has eight tenure-track faculty and four visiting faculty. Faculty teach introductory courses as well as advanced courses in their research areas. We have grown significantly in both faculty and students in the last five years. Presently, we are one of the most popular majors at the College and expect to have over 70 Computer Science majors graduating this year.

Candidates may apply for both positions.

Applicants must have teaching experience and should be comfortable teaching a wide range of courses at the introductory and intermediate level. Candidates should additionally have a strong commitment to involving undergraduates in their research. A Ph.D. in Computer Science at or near the time of appointment is required. The strongest candidates will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to creative teaching and an active research program that speaks to and motivates undergraduates from diverse backgrounds.

Applications should include a cover letter, vita, teaching statement, research statement, and three letters of reference, at least one (preferably two) of which should speak to the candidate's teaching ability. In your cover letter, please briefly describe your current research agenda; what would be attractive to you about teaching diverse students in a liberal arts college environment; and what background, experience, or interests are likely to make you a strong teacher of Swarthmore College students.
