Position Description:    

Union College, a highly-selective undergraduate liberal arts and engineering college, invites applications for the Tenure-Track Mary H. '80 and Richard K. '80 Templeton Assistant Professor of Computer Science, beginning September 2024. This endowed position is part of a broader initiative to further strengthen and integrate computer science and engineering with the liberal arts at Union. The area of expertise is open. Successful applicants will be committed to excellence in teaching, research, mentoring undergraduates, and to fostering a diverse and inclusive community.

At Union, institutional expectations and support are balanced between teaching and research; the ideal candidate will be enthusiastic about teaching, supervising undergraduate research, sustaining an independent research program, and providing service to the department and the college. This tenure track position involves teaching the equivalent of two courses in each of three trimesters, advising 2-3 senior projects each year, and serving as an academic advisor. We welcome applicants from all areas of expertise, including those that can further strengthen connections between computer science and the liberal arts.

Preference will be given to applicants who have completed a Ph.D. in computer science or a related area (including Mathematics); applicants close to finishing the Ph.D. will be considered. We are open to an accelerated tenure process for candidates with significant experience. We welcome applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented in the field. Preference will be given to candidates with a demonstrated ability to contribute to inclusion of groups that are underrepresented in computer science through teaching, research, and/or service.

Our department offers a B.S. in computer science, supports an ABET accredited B.S. in computer engineering with the Electrical, Computer, and Biomedical Engineering Department, and the computational track of the Neuroscience major. We also participate in several computational minors including digital media, music technology, digital studies, and data analytics. Current faculty research areas include robotics, HCI, NLP, databases, computational complexity, and software design.

Creating and maintaining a welcoming and diverse environment is important to our department, and we share a commitment to improving the diversity, equity, inclusion, and sense of belonging within the department and across campus. Most of our department faculty have participated in the Cultural Competency in Computing (3C) Fellowship program, and have developed course content that emphasizes inclusion and equity in CS. Further information about the department, and how to apply, is available at https://cs.union.edu/jobs/.
