Computer Science Faculty
Roberts Wesleyan University invites candidates to apply for a full-time (9 month), tenure track Computer Science faculty position beginning Fall of 2023 subject to final budget approval. The computer science program is housed in the School of Natural and Social Sciences on our park-like campus in Rochester New York, providing the program with the advantages of a suburban setting within a vibrant metropolitan area.
Roberts Wesleyan University is a comprehensive, Christian university of the liberal arts, sciences, and professions serving approximately 1800 traditional and nontraditional students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The University is committed to integrating a Christian worldview with learning in order to prepare thoughtful, spiritually mature, service-oriented people who will help transform society. Roberts believes that all people are created in the image of God and therefore values and affirms human diversity and is committed to providing a supportive environment that promotes awareness of, sensitivity to, and appreciation of human diversity. In support of the diversity of thought, Roberts has more than 60 undergraduate programs/majors, including 6 different adult-degree completion programs, 14 graduate programs, and 12 online programs; our first doctoral program launched in 2016. The Department of Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics is located in the renovated Smith Hall equipped with laboratory and classroom spaces that allow for hands-on experience and rich interaction between students and faculty.
Required qualifications include a doctoral degree in computer science. Candidates with strengths in the areas of data science, computational science, electronics, or cybersecurity are encouraged to apply. However, qualified candidates in all sub-disciplines of computer science will receive full consideration. Candidates must also demonstrate a strong commitment to the integration of Christian faith and professional practice and a willingness to support the University’s Christian mission and identity. A desirable candidate will be able to demonstrate multicultural competence and show commitment to the principles of diversity & equity.
Experience in undergraduate teaching is preferred as responsibilities include teaching courses across the Computer Science discipline to both majors and non-majors. The successful candidate will have a passion for applying Computer Science in a variety of disciplines as the program has strong partnerships with the sciences, business, and criminal justice; and is seeking to build additional partnerships with other disciplines. While the primary focus is teaching, effective faculty performance will also include service, profession-related activity, and scholarship.
Applications will be considered until the position is filled. Salary and rank are commensurate with education and experience.
