University of Richmond Mathematics & Computer Science: Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science - 000080CS in Richmond, Virginia
Mathematics & Computer Science: Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science - 000080CS The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Richmond invites applications for a full-time, one-year visiting assistant professor position in Computer Science beginning in August 2021. This is a non-tenure track appointment, annually renewable for up to three years, contingent upon performance, budget, and continued need. We seek candidates with a strong commitment to high quality undergraduate education who will also enhance the scholarly and creative opportunities provided by our computer science program. The area of specialization is open, but a Ph.D. in computer science is required and must be in hand prior to appointment. The teaching load is two courses per semester (or the equivalent of five units for the year). Applicants should have the potential and desire to commit to highly effective, inclusive teaching at all levels of the undergraduate computer science curriculum. Applicants are also encouraged to maintain a research program that has the potential to engage undergraduates. We are firmly committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, striving to give all students interested in computer science the opportunity, skills, and support needed to succeed. We are seeking colleagues who share these goals of broadening access and inclusivity in STEM disciplines in general, and in computer science specifically, which aligns with the University's strategic plan (https://strategicplan.richmond.edu) as well as that of the School of Arts and Sciences (https://as.richmond.edu/concept30/about/index.html). The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and more than 90% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.” The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the department and its programs, please see https://cs.richmond.edu. Applicants should click "Apply Now" at the top of the page and submit the following materials: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and goals; and a teaching statement. The teaching statement should articulate the candidate’s teaching philosophy, interests, and future professional development goals as well as involvement in and commitment to inclusive pedagogy. Candidates for this position may be asked, at a later date, to provide the names and contact information for three references who will be asked to submit letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Questions about the search should be directed to Dr. Douglas Szajda (firstname.lastname@example.org), chair of the search committee.
