Tenure Track Faculty Search

Tenure track Assistant Professor and Hess Fellow


Wellesley College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor as well as a two-year Norma Wilentz Hess Faculty Fellow in the Computer Science Department, starting in July 2020. 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, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity within an academic setting. 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. The two-year Hess Fellow position is funded at the Assistant Professor level with half-teaching (one course per semester), half-research obligations with ample opportunity for innovative course development and support for research, travel, equipment, conference attendance, and other scholarly activities.

Preference will be given to candidates with a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related discipline, ABD considered. Strong candidates in any area of specialty will be considered. Information about the department can be found at http://www.wellesley.edu/cs.

Applicants should submit a cover letter stating the position(s) they apply for, a curriculum vitae, a teaching statement that describes teaching philosophy, experience, and interests, and a statement about research accomplishments and future plans at https://career.wellesley.edu. 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 January 4, 2019, and will continue until the positions are filled. If there are difficulties submitting online, please contact working@wellesley.edu for assistance. Questions about the position should be directed to Takis Metaxas at pmetaxas@wellesley.edu

Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and the curriculum. Candidates who believe they can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply.
