Pomona College seeks applications for an Open-Rank (assistant, associate, or full) Professor of Computer Science, to begin on July 1, 2024. All subfields of computer science will be considered, with preference for candidates whose research and teaching interests complement those of the current faculty. Candidates should have a broad background in computer science, be excellent teachers, have an active research program, and be excited about directing undergraduate research. The teaching load is two courses a semester for the two semesters a year. Faculty are expected to teach across all levels of the curriculum. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in hand by the start date. Pomona College is a highly selective liberal arts college with an enrollment of approximately 1,750 students, all undergraduates. We seek to attract, develop, and retain the highest quality faculty and are committed to building a culturally diverse workplace. We value candidates who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and who are able to demonstrate a commitment to improving higher education for underrepresented students through their teaching, scholarship, or service. Pomona College, located 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, is the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, which also includes Claremont McKenna, Scripps, Pitzer, Harvey Mudd, and Claremont Graduate University. Collectively, the Claremont Colleges constitute an academic community of 8,500 students. As a result, Pomona students enjoy both the personalized instruction and close faculty-student interactions afforded by a small liberal arts college as well as the intellectual and extracurricular resources typically found at much larger universities. Pomona's Computer Science department has 8 full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty, and we are hoping to grow to 12 over the next five years. There are over 25 CS faculty across the Claremont colleges. In collaboration with the Claremont College Consortium, Pomona College offers a variety of professional development, mentorship, and networking opportunities for junior faculty including the opportunity for entering faculty members to apply for a fully-funded leave in their fourth year at the College.

A complete application includes a cover letter; a detailed curriculum vitae; graduate transcripts; three brief statements - one addressing teaching philosophy, one addressing scholarship and one addressing ability to mentor a diverse student body; and three or more letters of reference, at least one of which evaluates the candidate's teaching.

The salary for this position will range from $100-120K and will be set based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to internal equity, experience, education, specialty, and training. Pomona College also offers a competitive benefits package.

Review of applications will begin on October 8, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled. For further information, we can be reached via email at cssearch@pomona.edu.
