Champlain College invites applications for a faculty position in the Division of Information Technology & Sciences. This position will primarily serve the undergraduate program in Computer Networking & Cybersecurity. The expected start date is August 2018. New hires are normally made at the rank of Assistant Professor but highly qualified candidates may be hired at the rank of Associate Professor.
Primary teaching responsibilities consist of in-class instruction of courses in the Computer Networking & Cybersecurity major. Faculty will be expected to teach in-depth and hands-on technical courses in Cybersecurity topics such as Computer and Network Security, Systems Administration, and Networking. Secondary teaching responsibilities may include courses in the Computer Science or Digital Forensics majors. Small class sizes optimize instructor-student interaction; hands-on activities translate theory into practice. Because the College is entrepreneurial and market driven, academic programs respond to industry dynamics. Consequently, the College values current industry and other “real world” experience for its faculty and students.
The typical teaching load is four courses per semester. While there are no research requirements for retention, ongoing professional activity/development is strongly encouraged and supported. Out-of-classroom responsibilities include course/curriculum development, student advising, industry outreach, student team/project/club supervision, and service to the department, division and college.
