Beyond evidence of excellent teaching and scholarship, candidates should demonstrate imaginative and innovative ways to keep classics a vital part of the liberal arts curriculum. Knox is particularly interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to the diversity and inclusivity of our academic community through their research, teaching, and service. Knox College offers three academic terms per year, with a teaching load of two courses per term.

Assistant Professor of Computer Science

Knox College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Department of Computer Science beginning Fall 2017. Ph.D. preferred; master's degree or equivalent experience required. The successful candidate should be able to teach a broad spectrum of courses across the ACM/IEEE CS curriculum; teaching load is six courses per year (2 per trimester).

Candidates in all areas of specialization are welcome, but we are especially interested in candidates with specializations in HCI, software development, CS education, security, or computational science. Interest in leading undergraduate student/faculty research is highly desirable, as is an interest in interdisciplinary collaborations.

Computer Science at Knox is a dynamic, growing program, with an orientation towards combining rigorous foundations with experiential education, student research, and collaboration with other departments. Our students engage in a very high level of undergraduate research, internship projects, and application development with faculty; roughly 20% of our majors were involved in on-campus summer research projects last summer and most graduating majors complete software projects with real clients from the community or college. Two years ago, the Department helped create StartUp Term, a new immersive term that combines business, entrepreneurship, and computer science. We are also very active in the SIGCSE community and have shifted many of our courses to use Peer Instruction, a research-based active learning pedagogy. 

Knox College is a highly-selective residential liberal arts college with roughly 1,400 students, located in Galesburg, IL. We have a long-standing mission of providing access to first-generation and low income students. We have a diverse student body, including 25% domestic students from underrepresented minorities and 12% international students. Computer Science is an increasingly prominent department, with roughly 100 students taking our CS 1 course each of the last several years. The Department is actively striving to reflect the diversity of our institution; currently, our majors are 26% underrepresented minorities and 29% women. We especially invite applications from women and from members of historically underrepresented groups.

The Department and Knox College are committed to helping the person in this position develop as a teacher and scholar. All faculty have access to faculty development opportunities, including conference travel support and an internal proposal process to secure funding for research projects, as well as start-up funds. Knox also has a tradition of assigning faculty mentors to new faculty to help them develop as teachers and independent researchers.

To apply, candidates should send applications electronically as one or more PDF files:
● A cover letter that addresses your interests, qualifications and experience.
● A curriculum vitae.
● A statement of teaching philosophy, including a brief discussion about their approach to teaching and mentoring a diverse student body.
● A statement of research interests.

Three letters of recommendation should be sent separately as PDFs by the recommenders.
