The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Rollins College invites applications for a computer science position at the assistant level, beginning in August 2018.

Our small, dynamic department is looking for a colleague who is excited about teaching and mentoring at a liberal arts college. The successful applicant should be able to teach a variety of computer science courses, ranging from introductory level to advanced undergraduate, and show an interest in developing courses that serve other majors and our college’s general education program.  We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about encouraging women and people in other underrepresented groups to pursue computer science. Ph. D in computer science.

Our students and alumni can be found doing internships at NASA, Homeland Security, and at Los Alamos National Laboratories; in graduate school at The University of California-Irvine, Notre Dame University, and The University of Central Florida; and employed at Git Hub, Amazon, and Microsoft.  Current students have won a Google Ignite grant and are teaching programming to elementary age students. Others teamed up with Tesla-Solar City to organize a meet-up for creating applications and devices devoted to sustainability issues.

Our new colleague will be expected to establish a record of scholarly activity. The department encourages student-faculty collaboration and commitment to involvement with student groups, campus activities, and department and college decision making.
