The second is a two-year Visiting Lecturer starting in the fall of 2013. Funded at the Assistant Professor level, the Hess Fellow will help Wellesley maintain a flexible Computer Science curriculum that explores interdisciplinary learning and new directions of special promise. With a teaching load of one course per semester, the Hess Fellow will have ample opportunity for innovative course development and collaborative teaching and research projects with Wellesley faculty and students.

Visiting Lecturers also contribute to course development and engage in the mentoring of students and department service.
