Job Details

The Beloit College Department of Mathematics and Computer Science invites applications for a tenure-track position in Computer Science, beginning August 2022. Area of expertise is open, although preference will be given to candidates who are prepared to teach Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and other courses that will support our growing Data Science, Engineering and/or Cognitive Science programs. The successful candidate will also regularly teach introductory and intermediate computer science courses in addition to courses in their area of expertise. A Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related discipline (e.g., Data Science, Data Analytics, Computer Engineering, or Cognitive Science) is expected; candidates who are ABD and expect to complete their PhD before August 2022 are also encouraged to apply.

Faculty at Beloit College teach six courses per year. We seek an excellent teacher who is committed to teaching and mentoring undergraduates within a residential, liberal arts environment. Candidates will contribute to and advance the department’s commitment to engaging student interest and supporting their success in computer science. We especially seek candidates who have demonstrated success in working with ethnically, culturally, and/or socio-economically diverse populations of students.

In addition to teaching, faculty are expected to develop research programs that engage undergraduates; contribute to all-college programs, including the advanced mentoring program, career channels and international education; and participate in campus governance. Current Math and Computer Science faculty research interests include biometrics, digital image processing, medical imaging, computer algebra systems, and mathematical modeling. Opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside the department and with community partners are plentiful.

Because equity and inclusion are central to our students’ liberal education and vital to the thriving of all members of our residential learning community, Beloit College aspires to be an actively anti-racist institution. We recognize our aspiration as ongoing and institution-wide, involving collective commitment and accountability. We welcome employees who are committed to and will actively contribute to our efforts to celebrate our cultural and intellectual richness and be resolute in advancing inclusion and equity. We encourage all interested individuals meeting the criteria of the described position to apply.

Located in a diverse community close to Madison, Milwaukee, Rockford, and Chicago, Beloit is a selective undergraduate liberal arts college that attracts students from across the United States and the world. The department of Mathematics and Computer Science is located in the Sanger Center for the Sciences, a state-of-the-art LEED Certified building completed in 2008. The college emphasizes excellence in teaching, learning beyond the traditional classroom, international perspectives, and collaborative research among students and faculty. It is recognized as one of the Colleges That Change Lives.

Organization

Working at Beloit College

Beloit College was founded in 1846, when Wisconsin was still a territory. The early curriculum was built on the classical tradition, but students were given an unusual amount of freedom to choose their own courses. Today, Beloit is recognized for its longstanding commitment to curricular innovation, and its first-year initiatives and international education programs.

The Beloit College community is diverse and noted for its passionate engagement with ideas and the world. Its 1200 students are from nearly every state, the District of Columbia, and more than 40 nations. Twenty percent of its students are non-Caucasian; ten percent come from countries other than the United States. No more than ten percent of a graduating class is represented in any one of Beloit's majors.

98% of Beloit's 103 full-time faculty members hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field. Teaching is the faculty's highest priority but all professors are active scholars and artists. Many are leaders in educational reform. Professors serve as mentors, guides, and partners on research projects and academic work. A strong tradition of student-teacher collaboration contributes to the college's lively intellectual community.

Beloit offers more than fifty majors, more than thirty minors, and a number of dual-degree and pre-professional programs. A flexible curriculum, grounded in rigorous study encourages independent research, fieldwork, and collaboration with peers and professors. Coursework is interdisciplinary, experiential, and global in scope. The average class size is 15 students; Beloit's student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1.

Beloit's wooded forty-acre campus includes twenty-eight buildings in a range of architectural styles; four buildings are listed on the National or State Register of Historic Places. The campus is marked by winding pathways, expansive lawns, displays of public art, and ancient Indian mounds.

The college's academic facilities include the internationally recognized Logan Museum of Anthropology, the Wright Museum or Art, a state of the art performing arts complex and research labs equipped with advanced technology. Beloit offers more than thirty international programs, dozens of domestic study programs, and hundreds of internships and field study programs.
