Tenure Track Faculty Positions - Research Stream

The Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver campus) is inviting applications for at least three positions at the rank of Assistant Professor.  We invite applications from candidates of outstanding scientific talent in each of three categories:  1) artificial intelligence or machine learning; 2) systems, including computer architecture, networking and database systems; 3) all other areas of computer science. Appointment at a higher rank will be considered for an applicant of exceptional qualifications.

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, 2020.

A PhD in Computer Science or a related area is required. 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, and letters from at least three references. The teaching statement should include a record of teaching interests and experience. Applicants should also include a statement describing your experience working with a diverse student body, as well as your past, present, and/or future contributions to creating/advancing a culture of equity and inclusion on campus or within your discipline.

The application portal closed Monday, December 23th at 12.00pm PST.

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.
