Vagelos Computational Science Center

Barnard College seeks a full-time associate director for the Vagelos Computational Science Center (CSC). Barnard is a premier liberal arts undergraduate college for women in New York City affiliated with Columbia University. As part of the Milstein Center for Teaching and Learning, the CSC facilitates the understanding, exploration, and use of computational science and technology.  Taking an intentionally broad approach to computing and its use, the CSC runs workshops for students, staff, and faculty to learn the power of, and develop practical skills in, computational and data science; supports courses and develops student leadership through an undergraduate Computing Fellows program, and develops community to engage students and enhance diversity in computation and the sciences.

Reporting to the Faculty Director of the CSC and working closely with faculty, staff, and students across the College, the Associate Director plays a key role in promoting computational science at Barnard and supporting faculty, staff, and students to engage with computing in meaningful ways across all disciplines. A particular focus is helping undergraduate students become confident and proficient with the use of computation to help them address scientific questions, analyze data to inform their work and engage in critical inquiry in the context of a liberal arts education.  Candidates should have a graduate degree in computer science or a related field, or in education or library science, and experience with coding and computing applications.
