The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Colorado College announces a one-year, non-tenure track Assistant Professor of Computer Science position to begin in August 2018, contingent upon final approval of funding. Visiting appointments may be renewed annually, depending on staffing needs and overall performance, resulting in a maximum possible term at the college of four years. A PhD in computer science or related field is strongly preferred, but ABD will be considered.  We will consider candidates in any area of computer science. Applicants must be able to teach a wide range of courses across the department’s computer science curriculum.

Colorado College is a leading national liberal arts college with a distinctive academic calendar called the Block Plan, in which students take one course at a time. The teaching load for this position will consist of five regular courses per year, plus senior thesis supervision. The college supports active scholarship via travel to conferences and internal grant opportunities.

The College is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community. Further, Colorado College is dedicated to the development of faculty and staff who are committed to inclusive practices in teaching, learning, and working. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply.

A successful candidate must exhibit the potential for excellence in teaching and for contributing to the department’s scholarly activities, both through their own research and by supervising student projects.  The department plans to hold phone interviews in the middle of January, and to invite one or more top candidates for an on-campus interview in February or March 2018. Our online application process can be initiated at http://employment.coloradocollege.edu/postings/3091. Review of applications will begin on January 1, 2018; we will continue to consider applications until the position is filled.

Colorado College is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the diversity of its community. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation in our educational programs and activities or our employment practices.


The application should include a cover letter, separate statements describing commitment to teaching and to research, a curriculum vita, graduate school transcripts and three letters of recommendation (at least one of which should address teaching ability). All applicants need to list at least three references to submit letters of recommendation.  The application site will send emails to references with instructions for electronic submission.
