Job Details

Position Overview

We invite applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Computer Science and/or Software Engineering.

Applicants are required to have at least a master’s degree or the equivalent in computer science and a Ph.D. either in computer science or in a closely related discipline, as well as a strong commitment to teaching in a liberal arts environment. An ongoing research program is required. Salary and fringe benefits are competitive and commensurate with qualifications.

Butler is first and foremost an institution that prides itself on excellence in teaching. The successful candidate for this tenure-track position will be expected to teach a variety of courses in computer science at the undergraduate level. In particular, the ability to teach software engineering courses is preferred. Alternative pedagogical styles and innovative approaches in the classroom are encouraged, and an ability to work with students with diverse backgrounds is highly valued. As mentioned above, an active research program is also required, and the area of specialization is open. Research that approaches the discipline from a new perspective (like removing gender or racial bias in image processing, or accessibility issues in user interface design, for example) is welcome. A research program that includes undergraduate students is a plus.

To Apply

Applicants must submit a:

  • Letter of application
  • Detailed curriculum vitae
  • Brief statement of your teaching philosophy
  • Brief statement of your research program
  • Copy of your transcripts
  • Arrange to have at least three (3) letters of reference sent to us, at least one of which addresses your teaching

Completed materials should be submitted via email to cs-se@butler.edu. Questions may also be submitted to this email address.

For full consideration, applications should be received by November 1st.
