Appointment to begin Fall 2019


The Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at Benedictine University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Computer Science with an anticipated start date of August 19, 2019. We seek candidates with interests that would complement the backgrounds of the current faculty. Successful candidates will demonstrate commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate level. The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching a variety of courses, particularly the foundational Java programming course sequence. The successful applicant is expected to involve and mentor undergraduate students in research. All research areas will be considered; however, of particular interest are areas of rapid growth such as security or data analytics.


An earned doctoral degree in Computer Science or another closely related field is required by the start of employment. Prior teaching and/or industry experience is highly desirable. Candidates must be legally authorized to work in the USA at the time of appointment. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but priority will be given to those applications received by December 17, 2018.
