The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Rollins College invites applications for a tenure-track computer science position at the assistant level, beginning in August 2019. The area of specialization is open.

Our 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.

Our current students and alumni can be found working at some of the world's leading technology companies and government labs, including Apple, Amazon, GitHub, Los Alamos National Laboratories, and NASA.

One group of recent students received a Google igniteCS grant to teach 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.

Through its mission, Rollins College is firmly committed to creating a just community that embraces multiculturalism; persons from historically under-represented minority groups are therefore encouraged to apply. Rollins does not discriminate on the basis of sex, disability, race, age, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, physical characteristics, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law, in its educational programs and activities.
