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 2022. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Computer
Science or a related field in hand by the time of appointment to be hired as
an Assistant Professor; a successful candidate may be hired as an Instructor
if the candidate does not have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, but
will complete the Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field within one year
of hire. We encourage candidates in all areas of Computer Science to apply,
including those who deepen or broaden our existing research strengths, and
especially encourage candidates who can contribute to the diversity (broadly
conceived) of the department. Theory, programming languages, algorithms,
network science, networking, and privacy and security are well-represented in
the department.

Duties include conducting an independent program of research, teaching,
advising and mentoring students, and participating in faculty governance at
the departmental and university level. Tenure track faculty in Computer
Science at Wesleyan teach three courses per year. Wesleyan values both
research and teaching highly and has a strong and diverse student body.

Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research
statement, and teaching statement. Applicants must also have three letters of
recommendation, at least one of which discusses teaching, submitted by the
recommenders at the AcademicJobsOnline.org website. In the cover letter,
applicants should describe how they will embrace the college's commitment to
fostering an inclusive community, as well as their experience working with
individuals from historically marginalized or underserved groups.

Applications must be submitted online through AcademicJobsOnline.org. We will
begin reviewing applications on Dec. 1, 2021.
