Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science

May 04, 2017


Earlham College invites applications for a full-time, two-year non-tenure track visiting position beginning in January 2018 through the end of Fall 2019 (four semesters). Computer Science at Earlham is a small, dynamic program, with an orientation towards combining rigorous foundations with experiential education. Our students are engaged in a very high level of undergraduate research, application development and system support activity.

Primary Duties & Responsibilities

Typical course load is three courses per semester; upper-division classes usually have no more than 25 students.

Experience & Qualifications

The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related discipline, possibly ABD, or, in exceptional circumstances, have equivalent experience. They should be able to teach a broad spectrum of courses across the ACM/IEEE curriculum. Candidates in all areas of specialization are welcome; interest in leading undergraduate research and/or one or more of the applied groups which provide nearly all of the infrastructure support for the department and many other science departments is highly desirable.

Application Instructions

Candidates should send applications as a single PDF including a cover letter that addresses your interests, qualifications, and experience; a curriculum vitae; a statement of teaching goals; and a statement on building inclusive and diverse classrooms. Three letters of recommendation should be sent separately as PDFs.

Materials should be sent to:

Bobbi Cayard-Roberts
Administrative Assistant
Department of Computer Science

Applications will be evaluated as received, continuing until an appointment is made. Those received by September 1, 2017, will receive full consideration. Please do not send application materials via the postal service. For additional information contact
