Berea College seeks applications for a full-time, tenure-track opening in Computer Science. The successful candidate will demonstrate strong interest in teaching in a liberal arts context, be able to make connections with other disciplines, and will have interest in using active and engaged learning techniques in teaching, including student-centered pedagogies. Successful applicants will hold a Ph.D. in computer science or a related field, although applicants close to obtaining a doctorate may be considered. We welcome applicants from all subdomains, but specialists in front-end areas such as accessibility, HCI, UI/UX, and usability testing, or those concerned with socially responsible computing are particularly encouraged to apply.

Computer Science at Berea College has seen tremendous growth in the past decade and is now the second largest major. The department is staffed by dynamic and collegial faculty members who are equally comfortable and interested in teaching introductory and advanced courses. Students who work alongside the faculty as teaching assistants and student software developers are essential to the success of the department and are some of its best ambassadors. The faculty is committed to engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups in computing. Faculty candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Application materials should include a letter of application referencing the qualities above, curriculum vita, statement of teaching philosophy, course evaluations from two recent courses, three recommendation letters, and transcripts. Applicants should submit these materials to cssearch2018@berea.edu. Applicants should also complete and submit the Faculty Application available at http://www.berea.edu/FacApp. Review of materials will begin November 1, 2018, and continue until the position is filled.

Berea College achieved national distinction as the first coeducational and interracial college in the South. With an emphasis on service to the people of Appalachia and beyond, Berea enrolls 1,600-plus students from more than 40 states and 70 countries. The College has a longstanding commitment to interracial education; here, people of different races seek to learn from and about each other, while also living together. Berea is among the most racially diverse private liberal arts colleges in the United States. It admits only students whose families are unable to afford the high cost of tuition and awards each of them a Tuition Promise Scholarship, meaning no student ever pays tuition. Berea’s students excel in the College’s supportive but demanding academic environment, and many are the first in their families to graduate from college. The College is one of nine federally recognized Work Colleges, and all students hold a position in which they work 10-20 hours per week. Washington Monthly Magazine has consistently ranked Berea in the top 3 of Liberal Arts Colleges for its success in educating and graduating academically talented, low-income students who become service-oriented leaders in their professions and communities; in 2016, 2017, and 2018, the magazine ranked Berea College number 1.

Located where the Bluegrass Region meets the Cumberland Mountains, the town of Berea (pop. 15,000) lies forty miles south of Lexington and is approximately two hours from Cincinnati, Louisville, and Knoxville. More information about Berea College is available at www.berea.edu.

Berea College, in light of its mission in the tradition of impartial love and social equality, welcomes all people of the earth to learn and work here.
