Open-Rank Tenure Track Professor in Computer Science
Furman Computer Science professors mentor undergraduates both formally and informally, and strive to build an inclusive student-faculty community in which every member is treated with dignity, and all are welcomed to participate in the life of the department and in the respectful exploration of ideas. This involves regular interactions of both curricular and extracurricular nature. The candidate should show interest in and aptitude for contributing to this endeavor.
The Department of Computer Science confers degrees with majors in Computer Science (B.S. and B.A.) and Information Technology (B.S. and B.A.), an innovative, interdisciplinary program of study. The Department values teaching breadth and versatility, research projects that bridge Computer Science with other disciplines, efforts to provide students with learning opportunities outside the classroom and in the community, contributing to Furman’s university-wide First Year Writing Seminar program, and a commitment to applications of algorithmic, computing, and information technology to addressing issues of accessibility, equity, and social justice.
