New College of Florida invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Computational Science, starting in August 2013. The successful candidate will be broadly trained and capable of teaching all levels of undergraduate computer science. A Ph.D. in computational science or a related field is required with preference given to individuals whose work is interdisciplinary. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching, maintain an active research program with undergraduates, and be full members of the New College community. Postdoctoral experience is preferred.
The Computational Science Program at New College requires students to develop fundamental skills in the Natural Sciences which are then further developed through the use of computation. The college seeks an individual capable of playing a central role in the development and maintenance of our interdisciplinary program. It is of crucial importance that candidates be comfortable working with both students and colleagues to develop applications intended for use across a broad range of scientific disciplines. The ability to support current areas of interest, especially Bioinformatics and Computational Chemistry, is a plus.
The primary teaching responsibilities for the position include programming and software design, broadly construed. It is expected that the successful candidate will teach programming, data base systems, and datamining, with additional contributions at the introductory and advanced levels. The successful candidate will teach two classes a semester, sponsor tutorials and independent student projects, and pursue external support for their research.
Applicants are asked to send a letter of application including a curriculum vitae, unofficial transcripts, at least three letters of recommendation, a description of proposed research including how undergraduates would be involved and a statement of teaching philosophy. The Division is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service. To apply online, submit information under the Computational Science posting on New College of Florida's career website.
