Tenure-Track Faculty Position: Assistant Professor

The Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver campus) is inviting applications for one position at the rank of Assistant Professor. We invite applications from candidates of outstanding scientific talent in all areas of computer science.

UBC Computer Science 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, 2021.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related area by the start date and 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.

Interested applicants should submit a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, a diversity statement, and letters from at least three references. The teaching statement should include a record of teaching interests and experience. The diversity statement should describe the applicant’s experience in working with a diverse student body, as well as their past, present, and future contributions to promoting a culture of equity and inclusion on campus or within their discipline.

The website will remain open for submissions through the end of the day on December 20th, 2020. The website may remain open past that date at the discretion of the recruiting committee.  All applications submitted while the website remains open will be considered.

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.
