Barnard seeks to hire a recent Ph.D. graduate as the inaugural endowed Roman Family Teaching and Research Fellow in Computer Science at Barnard beginning in Fall 2019.
Barnard is a premier liberal arts undergraduate college for women in New York City affiliated with Columbia University. There are many opportunities to collaborate with faculty in the larger research community at Barnard College and Columbia. Barnard's Computer Science (CS) Program works closely with the Vagelos Computational Science Center, with the Columbia CS Department, and with other Barnard faculty. The initial goals of this new program are to enhance the experience of Barnard CS majors through activities that develop community, provide academic support, and connect them to CS-related opportunities outside the classroom; to serve all Barnard students by expanding the use of computation and data analysis across disciplines, through both curricular offerings and other programming such as workshops or support for computational labs associated with courses in other departments; and to build visibility for Barnard CS nationally, through research, curricular and pedagogical advances in CS and its multidisciplinary applications, and new models for engaging students and enhancing diversity in computing.
The Roman Family Teaching and Research Fellow in Computer Science position is a full-time two-year position with the option of extending for a third year. Fellows will engage in teaching (two courses per year) and in research, and will be expected to participate in curriculum and program development, undergraduate advising, and mentoring of undergraduate research. The position is open to all areas of computer science as well as to multidisciplinary scholars with a significant computational focus. We encourage candidates who take a multidisciplinary approach, whether across multiple subareas of computer science, or with another discipline. Candidates must have a PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline by the start date, and should have a promising research agenda and record of scholarship and a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching, mentoring, and/or increasing diversity in computer science. Fellows will be encouraged to interact with and collaborate with faculty and students at Barnard and at Columbia.
Applications should be submitted electronically at http://careers.barnard.edu/postings/4184 and include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, separate research and teaching statements highlighting past experiences and future plans, contact information for three references, and up to three pre/reprints of scholarly work.
For questions about the position, please contact Rebecca Wright, director of Barnard's Computer Science program, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin on March 1 and continue until the position is filled.
