Assistant Professor of Computer Science

Faculty Posting Date: August 4, 2017

To Apply: apply.interfolio.com/43686

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science in the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts at Duquesne University invites applications for a tenure-track position in computer science with demonstrated expertise in systems, beginning in fall 2018 at the rank of assistant professor.


The candidate should have a Ph.D. by the time of appointment, and will join five tenured computer science faculty and 16 other full-time faculty in the department. While the department offers a multidisciplinary Master's program in computational mathematics as well as undergraduate majors in mathematics and computer science, the candidate will be expected to make immediate contributions to a new Master's program in computer science. The department strives to accommodate each faculty member's teaching preferences, including the creation of new courses. Tenure-track faculty members are expected to perform well both in the classroom and as researchers. The maximum expected teaching load is three courses per semester, with a pre-tenure sabbatical and other potential reductions available to support research.
