[DMANET] Assistant Professor in Computer Science


The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of
Southern Denmark (SDU), Odense, invites applications for a position as
assistant professor in computer science. The appointment lasts for three
years and is expected to start by 1 March 2016. Contingent on successful
completion of a lecturer training programme and positive performance
evaluation, a position for associate professor is normally opened when
the appointment ends, for which the assistant professor can apply.

The successful applicant is expected to have a PhD in computer science
and a strong track record of research at a high international level, in
an area that complements or supplements our existing research
activities. In particular, areas interesting to us include (but are not
limited to) the following: 1) Database Systems?? 2) Concurrent and
Distributed Systems?? 3) Data Mining, for instance in biological and
health based settings.

In addition to research the applicant must be able to teach and advise
in computer science at all levels (undergraduate through PhD) as well as
teach in a broad range of core computer science areas at the
undergraduate level.

Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of Danish is not a
prerequisite for application. More English than Danish is used when
teaching in computer science, and more than half of the faculty members
in computer science are foreigners. However, the primary administrative
language at SDU is Danish and the candidate, who wishes to apply for an
associate professor position after the assistant professor appointment,
should therefore be willing to acquire Danish reading abilities within a
few years, in order to also contribute to the administrative tasks.

activities, see its home page or contact research leader Rolf Fagerberg,

The deadline for application is September 15, 2015.
