Faculty Positions

Tenure Track Assistant Professor of Computer Science

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Wesleyan University invites applications for a tenure track assistant professorship in Computer Science to begin in fall 2016. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand by the time of appointment, and must have a strong research record and experience in teaching.  Wesleyan currently has a strong research group in theory, programming languages, and software engineering and a 2-1 teaching load (three courses per year).  We encourage candidates in all areas of Computer Science to apply but the department is especially interested in databases, machine learning, natural language processing, software engineering and software systems. Prospective candidates should not feel constrained by this list, particularly those who would contribute to the diversity of the faculty.

 
We will begin reviewing applications on Dec. 1, 2015.  Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement and at least four letters of recommendation, one of which discusses teaching.  As part of your teaching statement we invite you to describe your cultural competencies and experiences engaging a diverse student body.

Postdoctoral Fellow opening in Computer Science

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Wesleyan University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral position that is renewable for a second year, subject to satisfactory performance. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. degree at the time of appointment and have strong research and teaching records. While the successful applicant will be able to pursue his/her own research agenda, an interest in current faculty research is a plus. Areas currently represented include algorithms and complexity, programming languages, logic, and software engineering. The teaching load is three courses per year, consisting primarily of an introductory-level course for non-majors. The department is redesigning this course to serve as an alternative entry point for majors, and the successful candidate will be welcome to participate in this process. There will also be an opportunity to teach more advanced courses or electives in the applicant's specialty.

We will review applications until the position is filled, but to ensure consideration, applications must be submitted by Friday, 26 February 2016. Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement, and three or four letters of recommendation, with at least one addressing teaching. Applications must be submitted online at academicjobsonline.org. Please submit PDF files only (not URLs). Other correspondence regarding this position may be sent by e-mail to cssearch@wesleyan.edu or to Computer Science Search Committee, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT 06459.
