Assistant Professor in Computer Science
Barnard seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor in Computer Science for the academic year beginning July 1, 2022.
Barnard is a premier liberal arts undergraduate college for women in New York City affiliated with Columbia University. There are many opportunities to collaborate with faculty in the larger research community at Barnard College and Columbia. Barnard’s Computer Science (CS) Program, started in 2019, works closely with the Vagelos Computational Science Center, with the Columbia CS Department, and with other Barnard faculty. The goals of the CS program are to enhance the experience of Barnard CS majors through activities that develop community, provide academic support, and connect to CS-related opportunities outside the classroom; to serve all Barnard students by expanding the use of computation and data analysis across disciplines, through both curricular offerings and other programming such as workshops or support for computational labs associated with courses in other departments; and to build visibility for Barnard CS nationally, through research, curricular and pedagogical advances in CS and its multidisciplinary applications, and new models for engaging students and enhancing diversity in computing.
Barnard faculty are expected to engage in teaching, research, curriculum and program development, undergraduate advising, and mentoring of undergraduate research. There is opportunity to collaborate with faculty and students at both Barnard and at Columbia. The position is open to all areas of computer science as well as to multidisciplinary scholars with a significant computational focus. We encourage candidates who take a multidisciplinary approach, whether across multiple subareas of computer science, or with research connections to another discipline. Candidates must have a PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline, and should have a promising research agenda and record of scholarship, as well as a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching, mentoring, and increasing diversity in computer science.
Applications should be submitted electronically at http://careers.barnard.edu/postings/5870 and should include a cover letter; a curriculum vitae; a research statement highlighting past accomplishments and future plans; a teaching and mentoring statement describing teaching and mentoring philosophy, experiences, and interests; a diversity statement describing experience and plans to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion; contact information for three references; and up to three pre/reprints of scholarly work.
For questions about the position, please contact Rebecca Wright, director of Barnard’s Computer Science program, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications received by October 22, 2021 will receive full consideration. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
