The newly formed Department of Computer Sciences & Physics at Rider University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level.


The Computer Science program welcomed its first students in Fall 2017 and has surpassed enrollment expectations. In order to meet programmatic growth, we seek exceptionally qualified candidates to join our program who are passionate about the undergraduate experience, both inside and outside of the classroom. Applicants from all research areas will be considered, especially those with expertise in cybersecurity, game design, or artificial intelligence.


The successful candidates will have demonstrated excellence in their teaching and research and be able to speak to how they will contribute to a diverse science community at Rider, including forging interdepartmental collaborations. They will be expected to teach undergraduate courses, including classes in the major at all levels, and will be also expected to expand the curriculum, including the development of new courses for non-majors and additional tracks within the Computer Science program. They will also have a plan for integrating undergraduates into their research agendas.


Rider University is composed of faculty, staff, and students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds who come together and create a vibrant, living and learning community. Candidates with a demonstrated commitment supportive of the multicultural needs of Rider University and the surrounding community are highly desired. Applicants should be experienced with, and committed to, working with such a diverse population.


Candidates should apply directly to our website at: http://rider.peopleadmin.com/postings/6102. Application materials must include: cover letter; curriculum vitae; statement of teaching philosophy (3 pages maximum); research statement, including how undergraduates will be incorporated (3 pages maximum); statement outlining a commitment to diversity, including evidence of experience working with and teaching diverse students; undergraduate and graduate transcripts; the names of three confidential references, which can speak to both your research and teaching experience.

Review of complete applications will begin on October 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
