Furman University
Two Year Visiting Professor in Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science at Furman University invites applications for a two year visiting professor position to begin in the fall of 2018. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or Master’s degree in Computer Science or a closely related field, and all areas of specialty will be considered. The position requires teaching excellence. Additionally, scholarly and professional activity involving undergraduates, effective institutional service, and a willingness to work with colleagues across disciplines is encouraged.

The Department of Computer Science confers degrees with majors in Computer Science (B.S.) and Information Technology (B.S. and B.A.), an innovative, interdisciplinary program of study. The Department values teaching and research projects that bridge Computer Science with other disciplines, providing students with learning opportunities outside the classroom and in the community, and contributing to Furman’s university-wide First Year Writing Seminar program. Furman Computer Science professors mentor undergraduates both formally and informally, and work to build a welcoming student-faculty community.

Furman University is a selective private liberal arts and sciences college committed to helping students develop intellectually, personally, and interpersonally and providing the practical skills necessary to succeed in a rapidly-changing world. Furman professors are exceptional teacher-scholars who mentor undergraduate students within a campus community that values and encourages diverse ideas and perspectives. Our recently-launched strategic vision, The Furman Advantage, promises students an individualized four-year pathway facilitated by team of mentors and infused with a rich and varied set of high-impact experiences outside the classroom that include undergraduate research, study away, internships, community-focused learning, and opportunities to engage across differences.

Furman is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and staff. The University aspires to create a community of people representing a multiplicity of identities including gender, race, religion, spiritual belief, sexual orientation, geographic origin, socioeconomic background, ideology, world view, and varied abilities. Domestic partners of employees are eligible for comprehensive benefits.

The Furman student experience is supported by a rich network of centers and institutes that includes The Riley Institute, The David E. Shi Center for Sustainability, The Institute for the Advancement of Community Health, The Rinker Center for Study Away and International Education, The Cothran Center for Vocational Exploration, The Shucker Center for Leadership Development, The Malone Center for Career Engagement, and our newest addition, The Center for Inclusive Communities.

Furman is located in Greenville, South Carolina, which is one of the fastest growing cities in the Southeast and is ranked among "America’s Ten Best" by Forbes Magazine. The charming downtown features excellent restaurants, in-town parks, shops, museums, galleries, music venues, and theaters. The city also has excellent public and private schools and a vibrant international community. A 20-mile bike and running trail connects the university to Greenville and to Travelers Rest, which was named "one of America’s coolest small towns." The surrounding area abounds with outdoor recreational activities and has some of the most beautiful lakes, rivers, and mountains in the country. Greenville is within easy reach of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Atlantic beaches. The newly renovated Greenville-Spartanburg Airport, located just 25 minutes from downtown, runs daily flights to major cities and airline hubs. Greenville is 2 1/2 hours from Atlanta and only one hour from Asheville, North Carolina. It is an ideal place to live and work.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, cover letter, statement of teaching philosophy and experience, statement of research interests, an official copy of most recent transcripts, and a diversity statement that describes how your teaching, scholarship, mentoring and/or service might contribute to a liberal arts college community that includes a commitment to diversity as one of its core values. Three letters of recommendation should be sent separately. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled, but to ensure full consideration, applications should be completed by November 15, 2017. Questions can be directed to the chair of the Department of Computer Science, Dr. Kevin Treu, at kevin.treu@furman.edu.
