Tenure Track Position in Computer Science

Pomona College seeks applications for an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, to begin in July 1, 2013. All subfields of computer science will be considered. Candidates should have a broad background in computer science, be excellent teachers, have an active research program, and be excited about directing undergraduate research. The teaching load is the equivalent of four semester-long courses a year. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computer science in hand by the start date.

Pomona is a highly selective liberal arts college with an enrollment of approximately 1500 students, all undergraduates, and a student/faculty ratio of eight to one. Recognized as one of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges, Pomona offers instruction in all major fields of the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, and is strongly committed to the value of a residential educational community.

Pomona is the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, a unique constellation of five small undergraduate colleges and two graduate institutions located in beautiful southern California near the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains, about 35 miles east of Los Angeles. Students of the Claremont Colleges can cross-register for courses at any of the colleges, and have access to a shared library system containing over 2 million volumes. Pomona students thus enjoy the advantages of personalized instruction and close faculty-student interaction in a small liberal arts college setting, combined with the intellectual and extracurricular resources typically found at much larger universities. Pomona cooperates closely with its counterparts at adjacent Harvey Mudd and Claremont McKenna Colleges, resulting in a shared colloquium series, a community of fifteen computer scientists, and a larger collection of majors than would be found in similar liberal arts colleges.
