The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at St. Mary’s College of Maryland invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Computer Science beginning August 2022. A successful applicant will be an outstanding teacher with a commitment to attracting and retaining students from underrepresented groups (including women). The new hire will be able to teach a wide range of undergraduate computer science courses, and be dedicated to the liberal arts tradition. The successful candidate will help to further develop the curriculum in Computer Science at St. Mary’s. The teaching load is three courses per semester. We seek candidates with a commitment to maintaining an active research program that has the potential to involve undergraduates. This is one of two positions for which the department is hiring.

With the support of the Office of Inclusive Diversity, Equity, Access, and Accountability (IDEA2), St. Mary’s College has designated this position as part of a cluster hire designed to increase the diversity of SMCM faculty. Programs participating in this cluster hire include Anthropology, Biology, Computer Science, Economics, and Psychology. The College seeks to build and support a network of committed scholars whose pedagogical practice-- across their diverse fields of specialization-- improves the educational experience of underrepresented students. Candidates who demonstrate commitment to and past experience with supporting BIPOC, first generation, and/or low-income students will be given preference. St. Mary’s College is particularly interested in candidates whose teaching is culturally responsive, and grounded in strategies that both increase student belonging and reduce equity gaps in student performance. New faculty in this cluster hire cohort will be supported by designated research funds in the first two years, paid professional development opportunities, individualized strategic mentoring, campus and community onboarding, and a dedicated steering committee to oversee the long-term success of the initiative and its participants.

Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary's College of Maryland is a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution which has been designated as Maryland's public honors college. We are located in St. Mary's City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C. With selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. St. Mary’s faculty benefit from a comprehensive program of support for scholarship, research, travel, and curriculum development, including course releases for pre-tenure faculty and leaves for tenured faculty. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.

Qualifications - Applicants should have expertise in any area of computer science or related fields and hold a Masters or Ph.D. in computer science, computer science education, or a related area at the time of appointment. Applicants with expertise in data science, quantum computing, graph theory, graphics, or cybersecurity are especially encouraged to apply. Employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check and proof of COVID-19 vaccination, medical and religious exemptions will be considered.
