Applications will be reviewed on receipt and continue until the position is filled.  To apply or ask questions about the position or the process, contact william.hooper@belmont.edu.

Requirements

Belmont seeks to attract a culturally and academically diverse faculty who share the University’s values. Situated in the thriving, multicultural city of Nashville, candidates who can recruit and retain a diverse student population are especially welcome.  Consistent with federal law, Belmont University seeks committed Christians without regard to race, sex, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, military service, or sexual orientation.  Belmont's Office of Human Resources actively pursues an annual affirmative action plan that outlines the university's commitment to hiring women, minorities, veterans and disabled individuals in all positions.

Job responsibilities include twenty-four hours of undergraduate teaching per year, typically four courses each semester of three hours each, as well as advising, program management, and other departmental and university professional responsibilities. Successful candidates will demonstrate the ability to teach the Computer Science curriculum to both introductory and advanced undergraduates, the foundation for a sustainable scholarly research program, and the potential to lead undergraduate research. At Belmont, it is understood that scholarship encompasses the scholarship of teaching as well as scholarship of discovery, integration, and application.  Completion of a Ph.D. in Computer Science by the time of employment is preferred, but ABD candidates will be considered.

During the application process, applicants will be asked to respond to Belmont’s mission, vision, and values statements, articulating how the candidate’s knowledge, experience, and beliefs have prepared him/her to contribute to a Christian community of learning and service, and give a brief statement of teaching philosophy. An electronic version of a Cover Letter, Curriculum Vitae, Teaching Philosophy, and a Response to Belmont’s Mission, Vision, and Values are required to complete the application.  The selected candidate for this position will be required to complete a background check satisfactory to the University.
