Tenure Track Faculty Search

Wellesley College seeks candidates for faculty positions in computer science at all levels (Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor), starting in July 2023. The Computer Science Department is strongly committed to outstanding teaching and scholarship, and to providing students with the best possible research experiences. We are especially interested in candidates whose teaching, scholarship, service, or personal experience has prepared them to successfully attract, retain, and mentor underrepresented students in computing.
The tenure track position has a teaching load of two courses per semester, with the opportunity to develop new courses in the candidate’s area of specialty and support for a vigorous program of research. Ph.D. required, preferably in Computer Science or a related discipline. We welcome candidates with any specialization. Candidates interested in one or more of the following areas are especially encouraged to apply: privacy, security, computer science education, systems, machine learning, as well as the social and ethical implications of computer science, particularly with regards to underrepresented communities. Information about the department can be found at
Applicants should submit the following materials at a cover letter; a curriculum vitae; a teaching statement that describes teaching philosophy, experience, and interests; and a statement about research accomplishments and future plans. We encourage candidates to include in their teaching and research statements past experiences, activities, and future plans that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in computing, and to comment on their experiences with mentoring underrepresented students.
The names/email addresses of three references are requested. (The online application will request names/email addresses so that recommenders or dossier services may submit the letters directly.) Applications will be reviewed starting on October 15, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. If there are difficulties submitting online, please contact for assistance.
