Assistant Professor of Computer Science
The Beloit College Department of Mathematics and Computer Science invites applications for a tenure-track position in Computer Science, beginning August 2022. Area of expertise is open, although preference will be given to candidates who are prepared to teach Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and other courses that will support our growing Data Science, Engineering and/or Cognitive Science programs. The successful candidate will also regularly teach introductory and intermediate computer science courses in addition to courses in their area of expertise. A Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related discipline (e.g., Data Science, Data Analytics, Computer Engineering, or Cognitive Science) is expected; candidates who are ABD and expect to complete their PhD before August 2022 are also encouraged to apply.
Faculty at Beloit College teach six courses per year. We seek an excellent teacher who is committed to teaching and mentoring undergraduates within a residential, liberal arts environment. Candidates will contribute to and advance the department’s commitment to engaging student interest and supporting their success in computer science. We especially seek candidates who have demonstrated success in working with ethnically, culturally, and/or socio-economically diverse populations of students.
In addition to teaching, faculty are expected to develop research programs that engage undergraduates; contribute to all-college programs, including the advanced mentoring program, career channels and international education; and participate in campus governance. Current Math and Computer Science faculty research interests include biometrics, digital image processing, medical imaging, computer algebra systems, and mathematical modeling. Opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside the department and with community partners are plentiful.
Because equity and inclusion are central to our students’ liberal education and vital to the thriving of all members of our residential learning community, Beloit College aspires to be an actively anti-racist institution. We recognize our aspiration as ongoing and institution-wide, involving collective commitment and accountability. We welcome employees who are committed to and will actively contribute to our efforts to celebrate our cultural and intellectual richness and be resolute in advancing inclusion and equity. We encourage all interested individuals meeting the criteria of the described position to apply.
