Computer Science (3 positions)
New College of Florida invites applications for three open-rank, tenure-track positions in Computer Science, starting in August, 2024, to join the undergraduate program in computer science with the option to participate in the master’s program in Applied Data Science.
We are a small discipline looking for colleagues to teach in an undergraduate program that produces inquisitive, articulate, well-rounded computer science graduates interested in software development and research. Data science and systems are particular areas of interest, but most of all we seek someone enthusiastic about teaching computer science for the discipline and the college. For more information, see https://tinyurl.com/3scstmhc. Two of the three hires are expected to teach in both the undergraduate program and the master’s program. Graduate courses involve group projects that use data from industry and research organizations. For more information, see https://tinyurl.com/mpsykzz5.
The teaching load is two classes per semester, plus supervision of tutorials, independent study projects, senior theses, and when appropriate, master’s projects. Faculty members also provide academic advising and serve on baccalaureate committees. Professors are expected to maintain a program of research or creative work.
A Ph.D. in computer science or a related field is required by the date of employment. Postdoctoral or teaching experience is preferred.
