Description:Saint Mary's College of California invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Computer Science at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in fall of 2023. A faculty member is expected to support the teaching mission of the College while actively pursuing research in computer science.

Saint Mary's currently provides robust undergraduate Computer Science courses in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department. Due to burgeoning student interest a diverse group of departments formed a Computer Science Steering Committee to support the Computer Science program within our Lasallian, liberal arts context. A founding program director was hired in 2021 to launch undergraduate degrees in computer science.
Fall 2022 saw the launch of both the BS and BA degree in computer science. In our high-touch environment, we aim to provide students with a strong foundation in computer science within the context of a liberal arts education. Along with strong critical thinking skills, our students develop competencies in social and cultural understanding and a sense of civic responsibility. The successful candidate will value close interactions with our enthusiastic student body and provide impactful, student-centered pedagogy. Being mission-oriented, the computer science program is also explicitly focused on increasing diversity and addressing the lack of diversity in the profession as it stands today, developing teaching and mentoring approaches that support students from diverse backgrounds to have successful careers in computing and technology.
This is a unique opportunity to not only launch a faculty career in computer science, but also have significant input in the future development of coursework and programs in this area.
