Instructor Position in Electronic Game Programming
Division of Information Technology & Sciences
The Division of Information Technology and Sciences at Champlain College seeks an engaged faculty member to join its Software Technology Department for a one-year appointment, 2014-15. First day of classes is August 25th, 2014. We anticipate that a full academic search for an Assistant Professor in this field will be opened by mid-fall 2014 and that any incumbent Instructor would be invited to apply for it. The successful candidate will teach a wide range of Computer Science and Game Programming courses. The typical teaching load is four courses per semester. Small class sizes optimize instructor-student interaction; hands-on activities translate theory into practice. Because the College is entrepreneurial and market driven, its academic programs respond to industry dynamics. Consequently, the College particularly values industry and other practical experience for its faculty and students.
Desired skills and knowledge should include professional level knowledge of C++, 2D/3D graphics and game engine programming, developing game architecture, networking, AI for games development, proficiency in programming languages used in the games industry (such as AS3, C#, or other languages) and Unity 3D.
A bachelor’s degree in an appropriate field plus intensive/extensive industry experience would be sufficient for our most serious consideration. The ideal candidate would have a successful teaching record, industry software development experience and an MS in Computer Science, Software Engineering or related field.
The successful candidate should be able to help build intercultural understanding and demonstrate multicultural perspectives that can foster a diverse and inclusive community both inside and outside of the classroom.
Apply at: www.champlain.edu/hr. Applications must include a résumé/CV, a letter of interest specifically addressing the desired qualifications, and contact information (names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses) for three references. Position will remain open until filled. The successful completion of a criminal background check is required as a condition of employment.
