Position ID:HMC-CS-AP [#9628]
Position Title: Assistant Professor of Computer Science
Position Type:Tenured/Tenure-track faculty
Position Location:Claremont, California 91711, United States [map]
Subject Area: Computer Science
Starting Date:2018/07/01
Appl Deadline: (posted 2017/08/29, listed until 2018/02/28)
Position Description:    

The Computer Science Department at Harvey Mudd College (HMC) has two tenure-track openings for assistant professors commencing July 1, 2018. Candidates in all areas of computer science will be considered.

HMC is a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college (850 students) emphasizing science, mathematics, and engineering. HMC is part of the Claremont Colleges, a consortium that includes five colleges and two graduate schools.

The Computer Science Department currently has fourteen tenure-track faculty members and serves three major programs (the computer science major, the joint major in computer science and mathematics, and the joint major in mathematical and computational biology) totaling more than eighty students in each graduating class. The department and the college place a high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Among the department’s strengths are its success in recruiting women (who comprise about half of both our faculty and our majors) to computer science, an innovative and rigorous curriculum that prepares students for both employment and graduate school, and an active research program that involves a substantial number of undergraduates. Most classes are relatively small. The teaching load is two courses per semester, plus supervision of one or two industry-supported senior capstone Computer Science Clinic projects per year. Please visit www.cs.hmc.edu for more information about the department and the Clinic program.

The department will begin accepting applications via the AcademicJobsOnline system at the end of August. Candidates should submit: (1) a cover letter describing their interests in teaching undergraduates at Harvey Mudd College in particular and in promoting inclusion and diversity in computer science, (2) a curriculum vita, (3) a statement regarding teaching philosophy and experience, including evidence of commitment to promoting inclusion and diversity as well as teaching evaluations or other evidence of teaching effectiveness, and (4) a statement of research interests and how undergraduates could participate in this work. Concurrently, please request three references to submit letters (the letter writers indicated in the application will automatically receive a request to upload their letters). It is desirable that at least one letter address the candidate’s potential as a teacher. All application materials, including letters of reference, should be received by December 1, 2017 to receive maximum consideration.

Questions about the position can be addressed to the search committee chair, Professor Robert Keller, at cssearch@cs.hmc.edu.

Harvey Mudd College is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to the recruitment of candidates traditionally underrepresented on college faculties.
