The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Davidson College invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Computer Science at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2020. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field by Fall 2020. We seek a faculty member with broad teaching and research interests who will support, enhance and expand the computer science curriculum at all levels, and who can collaborate with colleagues and students across disciplinary lines in a liberal arts environment. The teaching requirement is four courses in the first year and five courses per year thereafter. We seek candidates with expertise in areas that would broaden our curriculum, such as, but not limited to, programming languages, architecture, software engineering, security, human-computer interaction, networking, database systems, operating systems, or scientific computing. Demonstrated or potential excellence in teaching is essential, as well as an active research program in which undergraduate students can participate. Davidson College aims to broaden access to higher education, and our department strives to increase access to STEM majors and careers among underrepresented groups. We seek a colleague who shares these aspirations, and we value faculty engagement with the professional and wider community.
