Jim Little
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.

Applications may be submitted online at

applications will start on December 15, 2019 and continue until the
positions are filled.

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.
