The Department of Computer Science at Mount Holyoke College invites applications for a Lecturer, to begin fall 2020. CS is currently the largest major at the College with increasing interdisciplinary connections across campus and a vibrant student community. We seek candidates with a strong commitment to teaching and working closely with undergraduate students. The department contributes courses and advising for the growing Data Science major, and is also involved with the Fimbel Maker and Innovation Lab in which several CS courses are taught.
The teaching load for this position is 5 courses per year. The successful candidate will have experience teaching at the undergraduate level and mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion. All candidates should have a Masters or Ph.D. in hand by the start of the contract period.
Applications must be completed online at https://jobs.mtholyoke.edu/. Candidates will submit a cover letter, CV, and two statements concerning (1) teaching philosophy and (2) mentoring a diverse student body. A research statement can be submitted as an additional document but is not required. 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 March 23, 2020, and will continue until the position is filled. Please contact Valerie Barr, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
All offers of employment are contingent upon the finalist successfully passing a background (including criminal records) check.
