To enrich education through diversity, The College of New Jersey is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The College has a strong commitment to achieving diversity among faculty and staff, and strongly encourages women and members of underrepresented groups to apply. 

The Department of Computer Science at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) invites applications for a ten-month, renewable, non-tenure track faculty position in computer science starting January 2022.

TCNJ has a strong commitment to inclusive excellence in our community and to supporting a healthy work-life balance for our faculty of teacher-scholars.  TCNJ has been recognized by The Chronicle of Higher Education on its honor roll of “Great Colleges to Work For.”

We are seeking broadly trained applicants from all areas of computer science, who are passionate about teaching computer science in a primarily undergraduate, residential, liberal arts-centered institution. The successful candidate will teach computer science courses at all levels of the curriculum (introductory-, mid-, and advanced-level) and help to develop innovative, upper-level courses that complement and diversify the department’s offerings. Expertise in cybersecurity or data science is beneficial. The successful candidate will also display dedication to inclusive excellence in STEM and higher education.

Candidates should have a doctorate or master’s degree in Computer Science, or a closely related field; demonstrated excellence in teaching; and a strong commitment to the education of undergraduates. Candidates with equivalent experiences – from industry or other backgrounds – will also be considered.

About the Department of Computer Science and TCNJ:

The Computer Science program is ABET CAC-accredited, is housed in TCNJ’s STEM building, and offers state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, including a new high-performance computing cluster. Collaborative research with talented undergraduates frequently results in peer-reviewed, published scientific works. The Department of Computer Science is part of the School of Science, along with the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Statistics, and Physics. The School actively supports disciplinary and interdisciplinary teaching, scholarship, and grant writing. For more information about the department, please visit: http://computerscience.tcnj.edu/.

Founded in 1855, TCNJ is a selective, public, primarily undergraduate institution that has earned national recognition for its commitment to excellence. TCNJ emphasizes the residential experience for our approximately 7,000 undergraduate students, 30% of whom are self-described as members of groups traditionally underrepresented in academe and STEM. Students benefit from a 13-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio and an average class size of 21 students, which has led to TCNJ attaining a first-year to sophomore retention rate of 94% and a graduation rate of 86%. TCNJ has also received national recognition for the adoption and promotion of the teacher-scholar model for our faculty and deep engagement of our undergraduates in research. TCNJ was awarded the inaugural “Campus-wide Award for Undergraduate Research Accomplishment” from the Council on Undergraduate Research in 2015. TCNJ was awarded, in 2006, a Phi Beta Kappa chapter—an honor shared by less than 10 percent of colleges and universities nationally. A strong liberal arts core forms the foundation for programs offered through TCNJ’s seven schools—Arts and Communication; Business; Education; Engineering; Humanities and Social Sciences; Nursing, Health, and Exercise Science; and Science. TCNJ is located within an hour of New York City and Philadelphia. The College’s campus is set on 289 tree-lined acres in suburban Ewing Township and is known for its natural beauty.

TCNJ is the proud recipient of an Inclusive Excellence grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), which supports our work to provide access and foster success for all students studying science and math, especially those traditionally underserved by STEM and higher education.  TCNJ has also been a recipient of a National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE grant, which has worked to support the careers of women faculty members in STEM disciplines.
