The Department of Computer Science at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) invites outstanding applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position in computer science to join our community starting August 2019.

We are seeking broadly trained applicants from all areas of computer science, who have the potential to establish a highly visible undergraduate research program and who are passionate about teaching computer science in a primarily undergraduate, residential, liberal arts-centered institution. The successful candidate will also display dedication to inclusive excellence in STEM and higher education.

The successful candidate will teach computer science courses at all levels of the curriculum (introductory-, mid-, and advanced-level) and will develop innovative, upper-level courses that complement and diversify the department’s offerings. We welcome candidates in all areas of research specialization, especially those that complement and diversify the department’s existing strengths. We are especially interested in applicants whose research and pedagogy will connect and integrate computer science with other disciplines, and who have the potential to collaboratively contribute to interdisciplinary curricular and scholarly efforts within the School of Science and at the College.

Teaching and research are mutually supportive activities at TCNJ. Candidates should be strongly committed to the teacher-scholar model, to maintaining both high-quality teaching and an active and productive research program involving highly motivated undergraduates, and to seeking external funding consistent with this mission. Faculty members serve as academic advisors and have service responsibilities within the Department, School, and College. Research space in our new building and competitive start-up funds will be provided.


Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, or a closely related field (ABDs will be considered if the degree will be completed prior to the start date); demonstrated excellence in teaching; and a strong commitment to the education of, and research with, undergraduates.

To Apply:

Please submit the following materials:

  • Letter of application
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Statement of teaching philosophy
  • Evidence of exemplary undergraduate teaching, including examples of relevant work from previous students
  • Statement of the applicant’s plan for continued scholarly research, including with undergraduates, and professional activity
  • Copies of sample publications to demonstrate scholarship and professional accomplishments
  • Statement of commitment to inclusivity and diversity
  • Copies of all undergraduate and graduate transcripts or a list of graduate level computer science courses.

In addition, a complete application requires three confidential letters of recommendation, including

  • At least one commenting on teaching effectiveness, and
  • At least one commenting on scholarly research and professional engagement.

Letters must be emailed directly by the recommenders to cs@tcnj.edu with the name of the candidate in the subject line. Letters forwarded by the applicant will not be considered to be part of the completed package.

Review of complete applications will begin on December 15, 2018. Applications will be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled. Final offer of employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a background investigation.
