The Computer Science Department at Oberlin College invites applications for a full-time tenure track faculty position in the College of Arts and Sciences. We seek candidates with teaching and research interests in any area of Computer Science. Initial appointment to this position will be for a term of four years, beginning Fall semester of year 2024, and will carry the rank of Assistant Professor.

Founded in 1833, Oberlin is a private four-year, highly selective national liberal arts college near Cleveland, Ohio and is also home to an outstanding Conservatory of Music. Together, the two divisions enroll approximately 2900 students. Oberlin College was the first college in the US to make interracial education and co-education central to its mission. The College continues to view a diverse, equitable and inclusive educational environment as essential to the excellence of its academic program. Among liberal arts colleges, Oberlin is a national leader in successfully placing graduates into PhD programs.

The Computer Science Department is growing to 10 faculty positions with research interests spanning the areas of machine learning, privacy, security, human-computer interaction, theory, and computer science education. Faculty members teach at all levels of the curriculum, and are active in original research that provides opportunities for undergraduate participation. Many of our majors go on to earn advanced degrees for leading CS graduate programs. Our majors are enthusiastic and actively engaged in their education. The Oberlin Computer Science department is dedicated to making CS accessible to all students, and uses active learning and other evidence-based pedagogies throughout our curriculum.

The incumbent will teach the standard teaching load (4.5 courses per year, with labs counting towards this total) at all levels of undergraduate Computer Science.

The incumbent will also be expected to engage in sustained scholarly, peer-reviewed research, including with undergraduate students, and participate in the full range of faculty responsibilities, including academic advising and service on committees.

Among the qualifications required for appointment is the PhD degree (in hand or expected by first semester of academic year 2024-25). Candidates must demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable. Oberlin College is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. The incumbent will bring understanding of or experience working with underrepresented and diverse academic populations. Oberlin is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the excellence and diversity of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service.
