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 in computer
science, in the data science group, at the level of assistant professor. The
position will start in the first half of 2019. 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

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
