JOB: Teaching opportunity at Bennington College

From: Robert Ransick <>
A great place to teach–happy to discuss with anyone.

Bennington College is a residential liberal arts college distinguished by its progressive approach to higher education. The College was founded on the principle of active engagement in learning, which is manifest in individualized plans of study developed by students together with faculty. We aim to educate students towards self-fulfillment and constructive social purposes, and we believe that equity, diversity, and inclusivity–in community and in curriculum–are vital to achieving those aims.

We invite applications for a full-time faculty position in computer science, beginning Fall 2017. Applicants with traditional and non-traditional backgrounds in computer science and from all sub-specializations are encouraged to apply. The ability to teach and develop new courses in multiple sub-fields of computer science that can be integrated into a broad liberal arts environment is highly desirable.

Bennington’s open curricular structures facilitate teaching in non-traditional manners and across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Faculty at Bennington are teacher-practitioners whose professional work is in ongoing dialogue with their teaching and advising. An advanced degree in computer science or a closely related field is desirable, but not required.

Candidates should apply online by submitting: a) letter of application; b) curriculum vitae; c) statement of teaching philosophy that includes descriptions of three potential course offerings; d) statement of research interests and plans; e) brief statement on the candidate’s potential to contribute to an increasingly diverse and inclusive environment through teaching, research, and/or service; and f) contact information for three references.

Review of applications will begin on September 30 and will continue until the position is filled.
