[DMANET] Open Positions: Assistant and Associate Professors in Computer Science, SDU, Denmark


The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of
Southern Denmark (SDU), Odense, invites applications for a number of
positions in computer science at the levels of assistant and associate
professors. The expected start date is February 1, 2018. An appointment
as associate professor is permanent. An appointment as assistant
professor lasts for three years, and contingent on successful completion
of a lecturer training programme and a positive performance evaluation,
a position for associate professor is normally opened after the three
years, 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. We
are seeking applicants in the following areas:

* Machine Learning and Data Mining
* Database Systems
* Theory and Practice of Concurrency
* Cheminformatics

However, exceptional candidates in all areas will be considered.

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 associate professors should therefore be
willing to acquire Danish skills within a couple of years, in order to
also contribute to the administrative tasks.

For a hiring on the level of associate professor, the expectations on
the applicant's track record within research, teaching, and attraction
of funds, is based on an academic age of four years or more after the
PhD-degree. For a hiring on the level of assistant professor, the
expectation is based on an academic age of one to three years past the
PhD-degree. The applicants are requested to state in their letter of
application on which level they wish to apply.

activities, see its home page or contact associate professor Fabrizio Montesi,
