The Division of Natural Sciences / Mathematics at Louisiana College seeks to fill two tenure-track positions in its Computer Science programs. To meet the growing demand for IT and software skills in the state of Louisiana, and with the support of regional employers, Louisiana College now offers two degrees in Computer Science. These degrees (a BS in Computer Science and a BA in Computer Science / Web Design) provide graduates with both strong technical capability and solid ethical commitment.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity to develop the curriculum, impact students and the community, and engage regional employers as we implement and grow the program.
Applicants will need to demonstrate teaching competencies in Computer Science, including content in programming, coding, security, and information systems. In addition, candidates need to be able to teach coursework in algorithms, applied networking, computer architecture, and operating systems. Qualified individuals with a terminal degree will be given leadership responsibilities as Department Coordinator and will have the opportunity to shape the goals and distinctives of this degree program.
The positions also require that the faculty member be available for advising of students and have a willingness to serve on college committees. Faculty development through scholarship activities including travel and research with undergraduates is strongly encouraged, and annual funding is available through an endowment.
Successful candidates will acknowledge a life calling to liberal arts education at a Christ-Centered College with a mission that seeks to be “a Christ-centered community committed to Academic Excellence where Students are equipped for Lives of Learning, Leading, and Serving.”
One position requires that the candidate have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a closely related field. Proven research track record, outstanding teaching skills, excellent written and oral communication skills, and a demonstrated commitment to high quality student success are expected. Ability to perform exceptional research and to procure extramural funding, to advise students, and to collaborate with other faculty are also important. Areas of interest or expertise include cyber, mobile, and cloud security, critical infrastructure and systems security, cyber-physical and trustworthy systems, digital forensics, and agile software development. Other areas will also be considered.
The second position requires a Master’s or equivalent in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related field. An earned PhD. would be ideal but is not required. Teaching responsibilities and content areas are similar to the first position.
Must be a visible CHRISTIAN leader and give witness as a person who lives a life that honors the Lord Jesus Christ and is consonant with the Statement of Christian Standards of Louisiana College and the Baptist Faith.
