The Computer Science Department at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University (CSB/SJU) invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor. This is a one-year position (9 month contract) beginning August 2019. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. There is flexibility in whether this position will be full-time or part-time depending on need and candidate preference.

We offer a major and minor in Computer Science as well as a major in Numerical Computation and graduate approximately 30 majors annually.

This position carries a standard teaching load of 6 courses per year (3 per semester). The Computer Science department offers a lab-based curriculum where first-year and sophomore-level courses are taught with associated labs staffed with faculty members who receive teaching credit for supervising labs; this results in a typical teaching load of 2 courses plus labs per semester.

The College of Saint Benedict (CSB), a liberal arts college for women, and Saint John's University (SJU), a liberal arts college for men, are located in the central lakes area of Minnesota, surrounded by more than 3,000 acres of pristine forests, prairies, and lakes. The campuses are minutes away from St. Cloud, an increasingly diverse regional center with a population of over 100,000, and 70 miles from Minneapolis and St. Paul. Some CSB/SJU faculty and staff choose to reside locally, while others commute from the Twin Cities. Both St. Cloud and the Twin Cities offer a wide range of fine arts, cultural, dining, recreational, and sporting opportunities.

CSB/SJU are Catholic colleges in the Benedictine tradition enlivened by values of community, hospitality, stewardship, and justice. The schools are dedicated to cultivating an equitable, inclusive community founded on respect for all persons. Students, staff and faculty from many diverse belief systems and backgrounds collectively bring a rich dimension to the academic, cultural, and religious experience at CSB/SJU. We welcome faculty who devote themselves with passion and integrity to their disciplines and to a transformative education of their students.

With a total enrollment of approximately 3600 students, faculty members develop relationships with students in small classroom settings and have opportunities to work closely with students on research projects, experiential learning experiences, and study abroad programs. Recent initiatives to create a dynamic general education curriculum and to develop plans for a new teaching and learning center demonstrate strong institutional support for faculty development.
