Visiting Instructor in Computer Science

Haverford College invites applications for a visiting instructor to teach an undergraduate course in data structures during the Fall 2013 semester.

Haverford College seeks to hire a visiting instructor to teach an undergraduate course in data structures (CS2) for Fall 2013. Our introductory year focuses on language-independent techniques for reasoning about algorithms (first semester) and data structures (second semester), and programming projects are written in a subset of Python. Our CS2 introduces classic "collection" data structures (stacks, trees, graphs), focusing on data abstraction, beginnings of true object-oriented programming (e.g., inheritance), and reasoning in terms of axiomatic semantics, invariant properties, and test suites. Further information about the course and the program in Computer Science can be found at

Please submit cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references as PDF attachments to Professor Steven Lindell, Applications should be submitted by August 9th for full consideration.
