The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science invites applications for a tenure track position in Computer Science commencing in Fall 2018. We seek an additional faculty member with a PhD in computer science who demonstrates professional and personal interests that extend beyond computer science, to include a commitment to life-long learning in the liberal arts and an ability to cultivate such learning in undergraduate students. As a college rooted in the worldwide, evangelical Protestant Christian tradition, we are seeking candidates personally committed to this faith tradition. Applicants should also share our commitment to greater inclusion of underrepresented groups in a field that sorely needs such diversity.

  1. is serious about following Jesus
  2. wants to impact the lives of students
  3. has a vision for using her or his PhD in computer science in serve of #1
  4. sees computer science as central to the liberal arts
  5. has a research agenda that includes opportunities for undergraduates
  6. solves problems creatively and enjoys thinking outside the box

The computer science program at Westmont reflects our assumption that a solid theoretical understanding provides the necessary basis for elegantly and efficiently solving problems – whether in research or development. With this pedagogical perspective in mind, the new faculty member will have opportunities to make significant contributions to the content and structure of the program.

Applications should be submitted online from the Provost's open faculty positions page, or directly at this link. Questions may be addressed to Ray Rosentrater, chair, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, at rosentr@westmont.edu. Review of applications will begin November 1, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.
