Belmont Abbey College invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor of Computer Studies, to begin August 1, 2019.
A graduate degree in computer science or closely-related field and demonstrated excellence in undergraduate teaching are required; the doctorate is preferred. Candidates should be able to teach a wide variety of courses in support of our current service courses in office applications and our minors in information systems and computer science. The ideal candidate would have background in several areas such as data science, Python, R, advanced statistics, information systems analysis and design, database systems design and management, etc. In addition, candidates should be able to collaborate with other departments as we develop programs in data science and digital humanities.
Teaching in both the day and evening programs, with a 4/4 load, is required. Service to the department, College, and community; scholarly development; and contributing positively to the College’s mission are expected. Candidates must be legally authorized to work in the United States.
The successful candidate will be a talented and dedicated academic deeply and enthusiastically committed to the Catholic mission of Belmont Abbey College. Preference will be given to those candidates who can demonstrate 1) a record of excellence in undergraduate teaching and a sense of teaching as a vocation; 2) a philosophy of teaching that supports the approach to education expressed in St. John Paul II’s Ex Corde Ecclesiae; and 3) a strong desire to teach at a liberal arts institution where the academic program is “guided by the Catholic intellectual tradition and the Benedictine spirit of prayer and learning.”
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the search is completed.
