The Department of Computer Science at Mount Holyoke College invites applications for two full-time Visiting Lecturers, to begin fall 2018.  These are one-year, non-renewable teaching positions, with competitive salary and benefits.  We seek candidates with a strong interest in teaching and working closely with undergraduate students.

The teaching load for this position is 5 courses per year, divided between courses and lab sections. The successful candidate will have experience teaching at the undergraduate level and experience mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.  All candidates should have their doctoral degree in hand by the start of the contract period.

Applications must be made online at https://jobs.mtholyoke.edu/.  Candidates will submit a cover letter, CV, and three statements concerning (1) teaching philosophy, (2) research interests, and (3) a statement about mentoring a diverse student body.  Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of reference submitted on their behalf, at least one of which addresses teaching experience.  We recommend early submission because electronic prompts to referees will be generated automatically (and letters of reference accepted) only after the completed application has been submitted.  We will begin reviewing applications on February 15 2018, and will continue until the positions are filled.   Please contact Valerie Barr, vbarr@mtholyoke.edu with any questions.

Mount Holyoke College is committed to enriching the educational experience it offers through the diversity of its faculty, administration, and staff members.  Mount Holyoke seeks to recruit and support a broadly diverse faculty who will contribute to the college's academic excellence, diversity of viewpoints and experiences, and relevance in a global society.  In furtherance of academic excellence, the College encourages applications from individuals from underrepresented groups in the professoriate, including faculty of color, faculty with diverse gender identities, first generation college students, individuals who have followed non-traditional pathways to college due to exceptional talent and motivation in the face of adversity, such as societal, economic or academic disadvantages, and individuals with a demonstrated commitment to applying and including diverse backgrounds and perspectives to learning, scholarship, service, and leadership in the academy.
