The Bard College Computational Science program invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions, to begin Fall 2024. A Ph.D. in computer science or a related field is required. Successful candidates will be committed to innovative undergraduate teaching at a liberal arts college with a diverse student body; maintaining an active research program; contributing to the general education curriculum; and engaging with the life of the college.


We seek candidates who can contribute to the teaching and ongoing curricular development in our Computer Science major. Candidate scholarly pursuits should complement the current faculty specializations in computational biology, computer science education, artificial intelligence, natural language, spoken human/computer interfaces, human-robot interaction, data science, and algebraic and symbolic computation. Candidates should also be excited about interdisciplinary connections and interested in contributing to existing interdisciplinary activities on campus and helping to establish new ones. The Computational Science program offers a B.A. in computer science, leads the new program in Data Analytics, and contributes to several programs including Experimental Humanities and Mind, Brain, Behavior.
