Computer Science Faculty
The Computer Science Program at Landmark College invites applications at the Assistant or Associate Professor level beginning in January 2019. This is a great opportunity for a faculty member interested in project-based learning, innovative teaching/learning pedagogy, and developing collaborative student/teacher research projects with neurodiverse students.
Landmark College awarded its first B.S. in Computer Science degree in 2018. The new faculty member will have the opportunity to shape new courses and the overall direction of the curriculum by delivering courses from a wide range of undergraduate computer science based on experience and interest. The development of new courses in the candidate’s area of expertise is encouraged. Applicants with a background and/or interest in embedded systems and robotics are highly desirable.
Landmark College, located in beautiful southern Vermont, is proud to be the College of choice for students who learn differently, including students with a learning disability (such as dyslexia), ADHD, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We champion a strengths-based model and give students the skills and strategies they need to achieve their goals. A fully accredited, not-for-profit institution, Landmark College offers bachelor’s and associate degrees in liberal studies, studio arts, psychology, business, life science and computer science.
The faculty member will provide scholarship in the field, particularly in terms of research programs that can involve undergraduate students, and will join others in grant proposal development. Familiarity with principles of universal design for instruction and learning, and a demonstrated commitment to continuing growth as an educator is also desired.
QUALIFICATIONS: A doctoral degree in computer science or a related field is required, or a combination of education and experience (master’s degree considered). A working understanding of the nature of specific learning disabilities and teaching experience at the college level is highly desirable.
Diversifying the student body, faculty, and administration is congruent with Landmark’s mission. We value diverse populations and cultures, including, but not limited to, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, national origin, neurodiversity, race, and religion.
