The Department of Computer Science at the University of Richmond invites applications for a full-time, one-year visiting assistant professor position in Computer Science beginning in August 2024. This is a non-tenure track appointment, annually renewable for up to three years, contingent upon performance, budget, and continued need.

The area of specialization is open, but a Ph.D. in computer science is required and must be completed prior to the start date. The teaching load is 5 classes over two semesters. 

Applicants should have the potential and desire to commit to highly effective, inclusive teaching at all levels of the undergraduate computer science curriculum. Successful applicants will have access to travel funds to support their research. We are seeking a colleague who shares our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We strive to give all students interested in computer science the opportunity, skills, and support needed to succeed. 

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With approximately 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and more than 90% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.” 

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the department and its programs, please see https://cs.richmond.edu. ;

Applicants should apply online and submit the following materials: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a two-page statement of research interests and goals; and a two-page teaching statement. The teaching statement should articulate the candidate’s teaching philosophy and interests as well as involvement in and commitment to inclusive pedagogy. Candidates for this position may be asked, at a later date, to provide the names and contact information for three references who will be asked to submit letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Questions about the search should be directed to Dr. Sandra Joireman (sjoirema@richmond.edu), chair of the search committee.
