The Mount Holyoke College Computer Science Department invites applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty position, to begin in the fall of 2023.

The department currently has 7 permanent and 2 visiting faculty as well as 5 staff, including lab instructors and a sysadmin, and courses are matched to instructors based on individual interests and expertise.

Typically, class sizes range from 15 - 30 students, and introductory courses are supported by a lab instructor and an established peer mentorship program. The department is actively involved in the growing interdisciplinary Data Science major and recently established 8,000 sqft makerspace.

To apply, candidates must submit a cover letter, CV, and three statements concerning (1) teaching philosophy, (2) research interests, and (3) approach to mentoring a diverse student body.  Please include contact information for three references as part of your application.
