Job Description

Barnard College
Senior Endowed Chair / Director of the Center for Computational Science

Barnard College, a premier liberal arts college in the City of New York and the nation's most selective women's college, seeks a scholar and leader to serve as Inaugural Endowed Chair in Computer Science and Director of the Center for Computational Science. This individual will build a department of computer science at the College that works in close collaboration with the Department of Computer Science in Columbia University's Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. In this newly-created role, the Chair and Director will have the opportunity to launch a new academic program in Computer Science and frame programming and content for a new Center for Computational Science. The endowed chair position will be tenured in the Barnard Department of Mathematics until a department of computer science is formally established. The Chair and Director is expected to be in place no later than September 2018.

Barnard benefits from close collaborations with academic departments across Columbia University, and it is expected that this individual will have an affiliate position and intellectual home in both the Computer Science Department and at the Data Sciences Institute at Columbia University. In addition to curricular development, the endowed chair position will have the resources to recruit junior faculty and post-doctoral scholars and stimulate interactions with units across Barnard, many of which have quantitatively and computationally oriented components, and with Columbia.

Job Requirements

Barnard seeks a leader in the field of computer science with a distinguished record of scholarship and is open to candidates from a variety of research areas. The ability to develop curriculum, an understanding of the importance of collaboration across disciplines, and a deep commitment to the undergraduate experience, the importance of women's colleges, and excellent communication skills are required.
