Faculty Opening in Computer Science

Taylor University is seeking applications and nominations of strong candidates for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering beginning in August 2014, teaching in the area of Computer Science. Rank and salary are dependent upon qualifications and experience.  Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. 

Qualifications

An earned doctorate from an accredited institution in Computer Science or a related area is sought.  Candidates must be strongly committed to the educational mission and evangelical Christian orientation of the University.  Taylor University is a Christ-centered educational institution, and an evangelical, interdenominational covenant community committed to advancing life-long learning and ministering the redemptive love and truth of Jesus Christ to a world in need.

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will teach a variety of courses in Computer Science, likely most of which will be at the upper level, depending on background and fit with current faculty expertise.  Research and/or industry projects with students are valued and standard faculty duties such as advising, committee assignments, and scholarly activity are expected. A strong background in core computer science is required.  Expertise or interest in graphics and related areas from the perspective of computer science is preferred. The potential exists for involvement with the Center for Missions Computing, a Taylor University Center of Excellence.

Department

The Computer Science & Engineering department offers four majors: Computer Science, Computer Science - New Media, Computer Engineering (ABET accredited since 2007), and Systems Engineering (newly started this fall).  The Computer Science major allows students to specialize in one of five areas: Business Information Systems, Graphics, Intelligent Systems, Scientific Computing, and Software Studio.  Additionally, the department provides a Systems program that can be combined with most majors at Taylor to produce qualified systems analysts in a variety of disciplines.

The department consists of seven full-time faculty with graduate degrees in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Systems Engineering, Education, and Educational Technology.  The faculty bring a breadth of knowledge from industry experience and undergraduate degrees in Engineering, Biology, Philosophy, and Computer Science.   The department also has two full-time technical support staff. The department enjoys flexible classroom and laboratory spaces housed in the new 127,000 square foot Euler Science Complex that opened in the summer of 2012.
