Tenure-Stream Faculty Positions

The Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) invites applications for up to three positions to be filled at the rank of Assistant Professor. Applicants in all areas of Computer Science are invited to apply. UBC Computer Science (www.cs.ubc.ca) ranks among the top departments in North America, with a strong record of excellence in research and in graduate and undergraduate teaching. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2018, and is subject to budgetary approval.

A PhD in Computer Science or a related area is required. Applicants must demonstrate evidence of research success and a high potential to be leaders in their research field. Successful candidates will develop and maintain an internationally-recognized research program, and are expected to effectively supervise graduate students, collaborate with other faculty members, obtain external funding, teach computer science courses for undergraduate and graduate students, and actively participate in departmental activities. The potential of an applicant's research program to complement and extend the existing research and teaching strengths of the department will be an important factor in selection.

Applicants must submit a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, and the names of at least three references. The teaching statement should include a record of teaching interests and experience. Applications may be submitted online at https://apps.cs.ubc.ca/fac-recruit/research/apply/form.jsp.  Full consideration will be given to submissions received by December 17, 2017.  Applications past the deadline may continue to be considered as long as the submission website remains open.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the BC Human Rights Code including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit or Indigenous person. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
