The department is especially interested in attracting candidates from historically underrepresented groups and/or those with demonstrated commitment to working with populations historically underrepresented in STEM.

Duties of the position include teaching undergraduate courses in mathematics, computer science, or both; the teaching load is 3-3. Applicants should hold or expect to receive a Ph.D. in computer science, pure or applied mathematics, or a closely allied discipline by August 2019. We welcome candidates from all areas of scholarly specialization within mathematics and computer science and encourage applications from individuals whose interests go beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Founded in 1848, Rhodes College is a highly selective, private, residential, undergraduate college, located in Memphis, Tennessee. We aspire to graduate students with a lifelong passion for learning, a compassion for others, and the ability to translate academic study and personal concern into effective leadership and action in their communities and the world. We encourage applications from candidates interested in helping us achieve this vision.

Rhodes College values an inclusive and welcoming environment. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workforce.

Memphis has a metropolitan population of over one million and provides multiple opportunities for research and for cultural and recreational activities .

Please apply online at jobs.rhodes.edu. A complete application will include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, graduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and a separate statement that addresses your interest in teaching at a liberal arts college and how your experiences with teaching, scholarship, and/or service might contribute to a college community that includes a commitment to diversity and inclusion as one of its core values. While this position does not have a research expectation, we are happy to receive a research statement as well. Review of completed applications will begin March 10, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. Candidates from backgrounds typically underrepresented in higher education are strongly encouraged to apply. The online application system will solicit letters of recommendation electronically from the candidate’s recommenders, once their contact information has been entered by the candidate and all other required application materials have been submitted. Background checks are required before candidates can be brought to campus for interviews.
