Assistant Professor, Mathematics & Computer Science

Job description

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Saint Mary’s College is accepting applications for an Assistant Professor tenure-track position to begin in August 2019.  Requirements include a Ph.D. in mathematics or computer science.  Though the research area is flexible, the ideal candidate will be a broadly trained mathematician or computer scientist with an interest in teaching a wide range of courses at the undergraduate level, including computer science courses such as programming, data structures, and simulation and mathematics courses such as calculus and statistics. A background in mathematical modeling or the ability to teach at the graduate level in our Master’s of Data Science program is an additional advantage to an applicant for this position.  Duties beyond teaching include individual interaction with students, directing senior comprehensive projects, appropriate scholarly and professional activities, and college service.  Opportunities exist for teaching and research collaborations across campus as well as in the community.

Founded in 1844 by the Sisters of the Holy Cross, Saint Mary’s College is an all-women’s undergraduate institution with graduate programs for both men and women. The College has a commitment to excellence in STEM education for women and seeks to prepare women, particularly those from underrepresented groups, to be leaders in the wider STEM community.

Applications must be postmarked by December 5th to guarantee full consideration; however, applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.  A complete application includes a curriculum vitae with your philosophy of teaching, a brief description of research plans, all post-secondary transcripts, evidence of teaching excellence (such as teaching evaluations), a brief statement on diversity, and three letters of reference, at least two addressing teaching.

Applications may be submitted by mail or electronically (in .pdf format) to the email address below.  Letters of reference should be sent directly from the recommender.

Application materials should be sent to:
