Tenure-Track Position in Computer Science at Illinois Wesleyan University

The Department of Computer Science at Illinois Wesleyan University (IWU) invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor starting August 1, 2018. IWU is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse workforce, and the department is committed to supporting a culturally and academically diverse professoriate; we encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups and from practicing computer scientists with doctorates in other fields (this position requires a PhD completed by August, 2018).

Illinois Wesleyan is a highly-selective, undergraduate, liberal arts university of approximately 1650 students. Our primary focus is on the students, and so the primary responsibilities of the position revolve around teaching six courses per year (typically 3 per semester) and mentoring/advising undergraduates. The university and department are committed to the recruitment, inclusion, and success of an increasingly diverse and international student body, and candidates are urged to highlight any experience or background that may help them contribute to these goals in their application materials.

Faculty at IWU have active research programs that can be supported by internal grants and other initiatives within the university, including administrative support for seeking external grants. Undergraduate involvement in faculty research is common and encouraged.

The Computer Science department at IWU is a small but growing department with roughly 50 majors and three full-time faculty. Colleagues in the department are happy to provide mentoring and past course materials, and the university actively supports faculty development. Shared governance is a core value both for the institution and for the department, and the successful applicant can expect to share in guiding the department’s curriculum, policies, and initiatives.
