Visiting Faculty Position

The Computer Science Department at Harvey Mudd College (HMC) has an opening for a non-tenure-track visiting assistant professor commencing July 1, 2018 with a term of one year. Candidates in all areas of computer science will be considered.

HMC is a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college (850 students) emphasizing science, mathematics, and engineering. HMC is part of the Claremont Colleges, a consortium that includes five colleges and two graduate schools.

The Computer Science Department currently has fourteen tenure-track faculty members and serves three major programs (the computer science major, the joint major in computer science and mathematics, and the joint major in mathematical and computational biology) totaling more than eighty students in each graduating class. The department and the college place a high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Among the department’s strengths are its success in recruiting women (who comprise about half of both our faculty and our majors) to computer science, an innovative and rigorous curriculum that prepares students for both employment and graduate school, and an active research program that involves a substantial number of undergraduates. Most classes are relatively small. The teaching load is two courses per semester, plus supervision of one or two industry-supported senior capstone Computer Science Clinic projects per year. Please visit for more information about the department and the Clinic program. Candidates may apply for the position by sending email to The application include: (1) a cover letter describing their interests in teaching undergraduates at Harvey Mudd College, (2) a curriculum vita, (3) evidence of teaching effectiveness and preparation.

Harvey Mudd College is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to the recruitment of candidates traditionally underrepresented on college faculties.
