Albright College, a liberal arts college in Reading, PA, invites applications for several faculty positions in our growing Computer Science Department, at ranks commensurate with experience and education.

Students in the Computer Science major and associated programs benefit from learning within the liberal arts tradition that Albright College has emphasized since its founding in 1856. In addition to studying software and hardware fundamentals, artificial intelligence, game engine design, and applications of computing skills in related areas of study, students are immersed in a curriculum expressly structured to strengthen creative and critical thinking, oral and written communication skills, and personal, social and global awareness.
