Overview

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at St. Mary’s College of Maryland invites applications for a tenure-track position in Computer Science, starting fall semester, 2019. A successful applicant will be an outstanding teacher with a commitment to attracting and retaining students from underrepresented groups (including women). The new hire will be able to teach a wide range of undergraduate computer science courses, and be dedicated to the liberal arts tradition. The teaching load is three courses per semester.

Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located in St. Mary’s City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., has been designated as Maryland’s public honors college. With highly selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. St. Mary’s faculty benefit from a comprehensive program of support for scholarship, research, travel, and curriculum development, including course releases for pre-tenure faculty and leaves for tenured faculty. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.

Qualifications: Applicants should have expertise in any area of computer science or related fields and hold a Ph.D. in computer science, computer science education, or a related area at the time of appointment. (Those awaiting their dissertation defense may be considered. If hired, the candidate would serve as Instructor of Computer Science until terminal degree is acquired.) Applicants with expertise in data science, systems, graphics, or cybersecurity are especially encouraged to apply.

St. Mary’s College embodies diversity and inclusion in its mission. We create an environment that recognizes the value of individual and group differences and we encourage inquiries from applicants who will contribute to our cultural and ethnic diversity. Application materials should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy which includes discussion of how the applicant’s teaching would contribute to a culture of inclusion and campus diversity, statement of research interests, and three confidential letters of recommendation (at least one of which should specifically address your teaching). Applicants can request confidential letters through their Interfolio Dossier account, and may be uploaded for free by the letter writer directly to our Interfolio-hosted account for committee review. Applications are being accepted online at apply.interfolio.com/52312. Questions may be addressed to: Alex Meadows at¬†ammeadows@smcm.edu

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Applications received by November 15, 2018 will receive full consideration. Employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check. St. Mary’s College of Maryland is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
