Visiting Assistant Professor of Computational Science

New College of Florida invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor position in Computational Science, starting in August 2014, with a possible appointment for a second year.

The successful candidate will be broadly trained and capable of teaching all levels of undergraduate computational science. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching undergraduates and to working collaboratively with others in both a teaching and a research setting. Undergraduate research plays a central role in the curriculum. Students, with the help of faculty sponsors, plan their own academic programs through a series of semester contracts, and receive narrative evaluations in lieu of grades. Completion of a senior thesis is a graduation requirement. The teaching load is two classes per semester, plus supervision of tutorials, independent study projects, and senior theses.

A Ph.D. in computer science or a related field is required. Preference given to individuals whose work is interdisciplinary.

Situated on the Gulf Coast of Florida and Sarasota Bay, New College is a nationally recognized, highly selective public honors college with an 11:1 student/faculty ratio. The Division is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service.

A complete application will include curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, a statement of teaching philosophy (including course proposals), and a description of proposed research (including how undergraduates would be involved).

To apply online, submit information under the computational science posting on New College of Florida's career website.
